with that schedule i have no expectations so each win is a shock to me. good win against the romanian especially if she totally outplayed her

btw i think chak will need a MD wildcard or qualies wildcard to play french open. the entry list is out and she isn't in the MD as you cant you a PR to enter 2 slams. her ranking as it is will be way off qualifying entry cut off to. so she will need a wildcard to play. i would hope she gets a qualifying wildcard as it is 50 points to win a round in qualies of a slam and that would be against a non top 100 player.

Love the scoreline but a bit shocked by it too, especially considering it's on clay. I thought Sorana had been playing a lot better recently too. But I suppose when I've seen her lose before she really has switched into 'brainless ballbasher' mode and the errors fly.

Anyway it's very nice and the next round looks like an easier prospect: Irena Pavlovic or wildcard Julia Kimmelmann.

Maybe this is why she's playing such high level tournaments in the lead-up. She wants to get back on the radar.

cirstea has been in good form this year, she is #29 in the race. the thing that cirstea has been doing this year is turning around her form when in brainless basher mode. if you look at some of her scorelines she has turned a lot of matches round.

while i don't doubt cirstea was probably a mess, it is positive anna didn't throw in 3 or 4 games of df's and errors herself. when she beat niculescu and pironkova in hobart i liked she was trying to play consistent yet aggressive tennis without ball bashing. if she draws shrarpova or vika, yeah then go for it, but while she is working her way back up the rankings and playing lower ranked girls chak's consistent flat strikes that are well placed are more than enough to beat most of them.

good news is there is a qualifier vs qualifier round in the MD should chak make it, the bad news is the other 2 spots are against bartoli and pennetta (the winner of that to face sharapova).

chakvetadze will play pavlovic who just won in 3 sets. she is world #198 and that is all i know about her. on paper it looks like a nice draw, especially considering pavlovic just finished at 9.30pm at night and it was a 2.30 hour match she won.

well if she wants a WC then a breaking-news win over a good player will put her again under the spotlight and she might get bigger chances for a MD WC ;)
good news is there is a qualifier vs qualifier round in the MD should chak make it, the bad news is the other 2 spots are against bartoli and pennetta (the winner of that to face sharapova).

well, obviouly -if she can make it to qualify- that QvsQ shot would be awesome, but considering the packed draw Pennetta is probably the worst player in the MD as for poor form and horrible confidence, so she could stand chances against her too (though the H2H isn't really on Anna's side)

QvsQ would be best me thinks, especially given a few of the seeds have lost in qualies so might be some lower ranked surprise qualifiers.

i think pennetta on clay would still be very tough for anna right now

oh and anna plays last (4th match) on court 1 tomorrow, play starts at 11am

Yeah i about too say the same thing she have a better chance with the QvsQ, rather than playing Pennetta and even if she beat Pennetta Maria would be next, and Marion is also a player who Chak struggle to beat. Anna would have a Better chance with the QvsQ match and then play the match with Aggie, if she can beat Aggie, the section that Aggie have Anna can make the Semi

Anna def. Pavlovic 6-1 3-6 6-3

Did not expect it to be this tough. Shouldn't have underestimated Pavlovic.

Stats-wise: 9 aces, 4 DFs for Anna. First serve percentage could've been a bit higher than 58%. She did save a lot of break points though

sammy01
Apr 22nd, 2012, 07:34 PM
next up is katya bondarenko. she is world #62, anna is tied in the H2H at 2-2 with bondarenko winning the last match in 2010

anna will need to play better than today and yes the 1st serve percentage needs to be closer to 70%

sammy01

but in my opinion 3 torture set :tape:

but she might win, and yes, she has to play better than today :oh:

Katya has been so up and down so far, so i really hope she's to be on a "down" day and Anna can play solid throughout the whole match :D

sammy01
Apr 22nd, 2012, 09:14 PM
yeah i had a look at katya's results this year and saw some WTF? losses but a couple of decent wins too. her form in stuttgart has been crap, 3 sets against dulko who has been a walking bye since coming back from injury and 3 sets against that german girl ranked 460+.

i'd say it was even money for tomorrow, 50/50 as to who wins. if anna can get plenty of 1st serves in it would greatly help her cause.

sammy01
Apr 22nd, 2012, 09:41 PM
btw think anna is 3rd alt for MD in brussels, so with it being the week before the french and 5 weeks away i'd expect at least 3 players to pull out and anna to be MD.

madrid and rome she will be in qualies, too far out of the MD to get in.

I was at work so couldn't watch the stream. But I did have livescores so I saw Anna was a break down in the 2nd set. How's her game looking? Much better service percentage than QR2 and still positive in the ace:DF count. :yeah:

Apr 23rd, 2012, 06:13 PM
my summing up of her game from what we saw.

positives -

oddly her serve seems to have decent pop on it right now, when she got 1st serves in it either won the point or set up the point for her. 2nd serve is still not great but relatively few df's, which is all i ask of the 2nd serve.

she seemed very calm, didn't get too upset or downbeat when behind a break. again another thing that normally lets her down.

negatives -

forehand return was bad, luckily bondarenko only ever kicks her 2nd serve in really so chak got to hit backhand returns on 2nd serves and that is always a strength.

movement wasn't as good as she can be, not sure if down to the clay or because she is still getting back upto par. though she deffinately can improve on that.


overall i'd say she is playing decently. areas to be happy with areas she knows she will have to improve. some of her ball striking was very clean and crisp though especially in the 2nd set and she still mixes in a few drop shots to change the pace.

she hit 2 or 3 nice ones, i think a beauty on SP down was it at 3-5. she generally has a good drop shot, think she needs it just to mix up pace and play sometimes cus her flat hitting can get a little predictable.

on the draw, arn or cornet were the 2 players i was hoping she would draw and the QvsQ spot next to aga, so i'm happy with that. IF anna beats cornet aga would be much nicer than playing sharapova who would just try and hit anna off court, at least IF she plays aga she can dictate some points and feel like she will be in the match.

doing drop shots from baseline are expected, but when you are at the net and get an easy putaway, then try to be clever and make it into a dropshot thats just stupid. its just keeping with her low success rate whenever she goes near the net.

sammy01
Apr 23rd, 2012, 07:50 PM
when a player pulls out and a LL is added then the LL can go into any of the already allocated qualifying spots to, as they then become Q/LL spots, so all 5 spots any of the qualifiers or LL can be placed in.

:sad: Anna broken five times in the match. I was trying to follow livescores at work. I saw she saved match points and got back on serve in the second only to get broken again to lose. I'm kinda surprised at how difficult she was finding it to hold serve.

Cornet's not been having the best year until recently when she seems to really be on the upswing.

Anyone who saw it, was Anna looking tired? This seemed to be the problem in Copenhagen. Just wondering if she's struggling putting together four wins in four days.

erm, no, alize played nowhere near good. when chak maneged to find her game, to lift the game, to create a point like she imagined, than cornet didn't have a half of chance. that happened in first 4 points the first game, and there were some points later. shara in half of form will eat her, (cornet)like, 2 and 3 (max). But as I said, we need to be optimistic, chak was non consistent to play 3 good games in a row, but let's hope that soon she will be :)

tbh the draw is stacked, not sure i'd want her to sneak into the MD. the qualifying is looking a little softer than stuttgart was.

qualies is only 2 rounds in madrid and it is 20 points for a 1st round and 30 to qualify so that would be decent if she could come through qualies.

qualies is only 2 rounds in madrid and it is 20 points for a 1st round and 30 to qualify so that would be decent if she could come through qualies.

You're right! those 30 points would be very helpful and it's great it's only two matches, she'd be less tired!

No I don't think so. She should have beaten Larrson if she was really playing up to her standards. :sad: I hope now she can have some realistic goals going for the rest of the season.

i don't agree here because i'm not an optimist, i'm realistic... loosing to jo-la (despite the fact that clay is chak's least favorite surface) is a clear sign that chak is nowhere near the decent form. in terms of what she is capable of...

Anna just can't win a MD match these days! :( Good luck in Brussels! she really isn't taking her oportunities! all of her MD matches have been very winnables! :(

Not taking advantage of her draws, she could have won this match. get your ass to Brussels and try to win atleast one match. :(

Oh no! I thought this was really winnable. And again it was pretty close. Qualifying is all well and good but you don't get many points for it and that's what she needs. She was desperate for a kind main draw match-up and I assumed this was it. :sad:

If she doesn't start getting some MD wins she'll be very soon in ITFs in god knows where.

Stuttgart/Hobart were the only good tournements (tennis-wise) I saw this year. There is not much on the ATP side either. Even the AO wasn't good. Very average/boring year so far and this clay season is beyond awful apart from Stuttgart.

Anna should play in MM events consistently or ITFs if she can't get a MD win in big events.

Wozniacki-Kerber and Kvitova-Kerber at Stuttgart were good matches. The WTA is missing Clijster.

Yes, just read she didn't get a WC! i don't know but i really doubt her ranking allows her to play! :sad: It'd be so bad if she can't play in Paris :sad:

Wintermute

That's right. The entry for RG is based on rankings this week so no chance of getting in this year. Such a shame! I really think she was deserving of at least a qualy wild card considering she's a former quarter-finalist and top 5 player. But never mind. Means she's coming to England a bit earlier than expected.

This is getting very frustrating. She is winning matches in qualifying but not in MD. I think going back to ITFs may be the best choice at this time.

Yes, it looks like ITFs for a while.

yep, should have played all the MM's clay tournaments instead of trying out the big premier qualifying draws.

anyway what is done is done, at least now she will be forced to do the right thing and play itf's and MM tournaments.

cant wait for notts :)
