Some nice photos of her looking like a princess to put us in the mood :D Anna appears to be next into the main draw if someone will kindly withdraw.

Oct 8th, 2010, 04:39 PM
Yeah! I hope she'll have a great run! Get the tittle!! Nice pics! From 07! The good old days!

Serena is unbeatable? It sounds as if you think she is gonna come back out playing at the same level that she was at during Wimbledon. Dude, that is highly unlikely. For starters, Serena was in the zone during Wimbledon. 'Being in the zone' is never a permanent condition; Serena is no exception. Secondly, Serena is coming off of a 3-month layoff during which she had to undergo foot surgery. Don't get me wrong, Serena is a pro. She's been training/practicing for weeks, so you've gotta assume that she's prepared for her return. That said, Serena is human. She'll be vulnerable. If people can't see that then they've bought into the whole aura of invincibility that she and her supporters peddle -- hook, line and sinker.

No point in focusing on where Serena lands in the draw, and then underestimating the rest of the field. There are lots of dangerous players in Linz. Anna has got her work cut out for her next week. It's going to be a fight, but she can do it.

oh well.nice to see her in MD.
i just hope she will get through R1.that's all i want for now.
GL Anna!

Chaky aint as hot lately and Chaky always has problems with Bammer

Oct 9th, 2010, 10:02 PM
It's a winnable first round I think.

Go Chaky :D

Oct 11th, 2010, 09:49 PM
Bammer has been in serious decline, but of course she'll have the crowd to carry her. Although judging from her past results in Linz, that might not really turn out to her advantage (5 first-round exits since 2003). :lol:

Hope Anna can do well here.

Oct 11th, 2010, 09:53 PM
If Anna plays like Anna, BamBam has no chance, C`mon!!!

Oct 11th, 2010, 10:09 PM

Anna :hearts:

Interesting R1 vs Bammer. Anna leads Head To Head 3-2.
Last match 2009 NEW HAVEN: Anna won 4-6 6-4 7-5 !!!:eek::lol:

Anna playing doubles with Schnyder?!:spit:
Nice R1 match for them.

There will be a stream for the Anna-Bammer match.:p
Can`t watch the match. Can somebody write a report, please?:awww:

Really hope Anna goes far in Linz.
It is about time!!!

Good luck in Linz, Anna!:);)

I think Anna is tired. She should go to Argentina and work on her game

:hug: :hug: :sobbing:

Oct 12th, 2010, 05:22 PM
For some reason, she had no focus or desire to win today, especially at the end. She practically gave up in the last few games. Anna :hug:. I expect better from her, hopefully Moscow is not like this.

Oct 12th, 2010, 05:36 PM
She totally tanked,she packed her bags at 0-4 already :spit:
I expect a quick lose from Doubles aswell.

Oct 12th, 2010, 05:47 PM
Anna was playing great until the USO.
If she is injured or tired, she should take a break after Moscow

Oct 12th, 2010, 06:45 PM
Another bad result. It's been a string of weird results for Anna this year; from the sublime to the pathetic! She's certainly keeping me guessing which Anna will turn up. I hope she will bring it for Moscow.

Oct 12th, 2010, 08:50 PM

WTF is wrong with you?!:o

well, at least I like Bammer.

Can somebody who saw the match please be so kind as to give me a short match report?:rolleyes:
How was Anna`s movement? Her serve?

Oct 12th, 2010, 09:00 PM
Report- Anna was good till she wasted 2 sp than - I CBA Anymore going to Moscow -
She packed her bags at 0-4 shake hands and lefted before Bammer put her raquets down

King Halep
Oct 12th, 2010, 09:03 PM
From having 2 set points she managed to lose 8 games. She gift wrapped the second set with an impressive array of errors, going for too much when trying to hit a winner. Like a lot of first round matches, her game was not really clicking but she did not try to adjust and work her opponent around the court. Just did not seem to have the patience today and she did not move around much. Gave her opponent very little to do, typical point was trading a few shots up the middle then an error. Her serve was probably the best part.

^ thanks for the reports.
omg she wasted 2 SPs.:o

I guess have to accept Anna is past her peak.:(
She will never return to Top 10 again. She just doesn`t have anymore what it takes.
Hope I`m wrong though.

King Halep
Oct 12th, 2010, 11:51 PM
In a lot of her losses this year she has had set points or been up a break. Her coach needs to be her therapist as well. Its hard to say how much potential she has, she keeps getting hindered each time she gets herself fit again. That virus she got really seems to have ended her chances of winning some matches at the end of the season.

Don't bet your house on that prediction, because her wins in Portoroz and the Bronx definitely say otherwise. It was a bumpy ride down the mountain, and it will be a bumpy ride on the way back up. It's as simple as that.

Oct 13th, 2010, 03:41 PM
i just hope she can bring her best to Moscow this year...
last year she had an excuse of it being her first tournament back from injury, but even still she hasn't won a match there since she won the title in 2006...
GL Anna!!

Chakyder has a fabulous win 6-1 6-1, but not as fabulous as her shorts :)

next is top seed Kveta PESCHKE (CZE)/Katarina SREBOTNIK (SLO)

Oct 13th, 2010, 06:30 PM
Yes hurry up and lose and goto Moscow
Or beat the top seeds and win the title

I dont even know when they played this and there was no info about when it would be on but according to the tournament site

Doubles - Quarterfinals
(1) Peschke/Srebtonik (CZE/SLO) d. Chakvetadze/Schnyder (RUS/SUI) 62 63

so I hope Anna has a nice break and gets over what injury she has. Its been a trying time for her having injury whenever she has been able to get back into form but I think she and her coach will make her better.

Still the cutest on the WTA Tour :hearts:
