Anna is up against Julia Kimmelmann of Germany in QR1.

Good luck and I hope her health is finally back to what it should be, although I have to admit that I'm very surprised she has made it back to a draw so quickly.

She made it back fast because her problem was caused by not taking time to recover from flu. Hopefully, that was all it was. She can qulaify as long as she dont have a 3 hour match with Regina

Well, she's got a pretty good draw here, so we've got to be thankful for that. Hopefully she will be able to find a good rhythm quickly. If she does, I think that she's got a pretty good chance of qualifying. That said, I don't care too much about results at the moment. I'm just happy that she's feeling healthy, and that she's back on the court. :)

Andrea Petkovic one not that bad because it a 50/50 chance she play jj, she played Petra Kvitova @ AO and had many BP so she might can give her an run. the one with Agnieszka Radwanska is not that bad either if she can beat Agnieszka Radwanska and then she will play Francesca Schiavone who been playing bad and anna own her. I just hope she dont pull Caroline Wozniacki draw

Since Wickmayer and Schiavone withdrew, Anna already has a secured MD spot. :p
Today she played a really good match. However there was a bad patch in the second set from 2-0 to 2-3. Yet she looked angry and mad the entire match, which was better to see than the pale and weak Anna yesterday. :) Some great, fluent shots and less errors. Good returning and a solid serve. :D

wait so she's already assured an LL spot?
not saying she will, but (does anybody know) would it be more prudent for her to tank and get an LL spot, or to get a Q spot? which would be more favorable in terms of matchups/opponent's form?
just curious.

Possible Q spots (if the LL and Q are mixed when drawing)

1) Vs Q/LL and then Caro Wozniacki (2 chances - original draw and Wickmayer)
2) Vs Petkovic and then Q/LL (Kvitova-is she really out?) or Jankovic
3) Vs Jankovic and then Q/LL or Petkovic
4) Vs Aga Radwanska then Schiavone
5) Vs Görges then Azarenka

Don't know which one is the best... Maybe (3), since jankovic played Singles and Doubles epic matches yesterday...

VitorTA

Anna plays Zuzana Kucova on court one tomorrow not before 12:00 German Time.

It will probably start a bit later, since the match between her doubles partner Dulgueru and Hantuchova is scheduled for 10:30, and i don't think it will be over by 11:50 or so.

The doubles will be "after suitable rest", but since they will have the court 2 for themselves, the suitable rest can be a bit longer ;).

Apr 19th, 2011, 01:31 AM

There's no shame in losing to the No.1, no matter what anyone thinks of Caro holding the title, and i don't think it will be a humiliating blowout. I mean, Zombie Anna in Dubai almost won a set aganist her before fainting (and retired about to serve for the set).
And she could really use the points because, lets face it, she won't be facing LL in Premier Round 1s very often.

GVTennisNews (http://twitter.com/GVTennisNews)

For those asking, it was again the dizziness that led to Chak's retirement [but didn't faint] .Said the doctors told her she would be fine

but it has come back. Said she's going to rest and then "see what happens" while the doctors carry out further tests. -TC

:sad: It's terrible news that this affliction has reared it's head again. So strange that it suddenly started happening this year. Is there some sort of psychological element to it?

In terms of her playing career it doesn't seem too good. How can she possibly manage to cope in some of the more difficult conditions like Australia in summer?

I just hope that she gets the right help and makes the best decision for her own health.

Jon Wertheim just said on twitter, "Can the WTA give Anna Chakvetadze a medical suspension?"

Surely she wouldn't be playing without getting cleared by her doctors?

There is so much uncertainty surrounding her illness at the moment. At any rate, there is one thing that I'm quite certain about, and it's that Anna loves playing tennis. She's not going to quit the sport without a fight. She has faced all sorts of challenges in this sport, and she has found a way to overcome all of them. She makes it back into the Top 50, and then she runs headlong into her biggest obstacle yet. It really isn't fair, but that is how life is sometimes... :[

just hoping and praying we hear some great news from the doctors hopefully they can find a way to stop it or control it, she still have like 10 days to rest up till Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open so let hope we get great news like i said, if it weren't for her pass out she really playing great tennis she really could get herself back into top 20 if she get a couple good draw and play some small event but most importantly get her health together, so i hoping she can get well soon enough for Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open
