Yeah, I agree. She has the game.. she needs the brain to go with it. Can't let what happened against Maria happen again. She had a great shot to win that match and ended up shooting herself in the foot. It's about attitude and how she handles herself. Needs to improve a lot in that area.

I'm not sure about how Nigel is handling this though..

I watched the match against Maria and she did show glimpses of old form coming back. QF is possible for her,IMHO.

Ana had a closer match against Sharapova then the one against Azarenka..

I hope she draws either Radwanska or Kvitova.. but she will have to stop freezing against top players to have a real chance anyway.

Yes obviously this marvelous clay season has taught you that Ana can beat top players and make the SF of Paris.

Even before start of 2012 clay season I promote same most-realistic scenario for Ana results and achievements on clay this season, but now I realize that there should not be any excuses for Ana for not reach at least SF this year in Paris.
You are really funny.. she would have to beat not only 1 but 2 top players to get that far. She can't even close out a set after 7 SPs against a top player, let alone win..

It's an issue.. but I think she is going very careful with fitness, scared to death of injuries. No fitness coach.. and I honestly don't trust someone who was appointed by her ex, the golfer.
Feel free to name the fraud. Nobody likes that Tina woman here.

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

It's really dissapointing...I mean 6 SPs! and she didn't take one of them....then 3-1 up and again lost the set. Anyway she's well prepared for Roland Garros, I hope she'll have easy draw especially in 4r(maybe Aga?) so she'd make QF finally.

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

Just a little update on Ana's 2012 stats compared to other players. She is doing well on the serve.
She is 9th on most aces this season at 90 aces.
She is 10th on winning service games at 73.3 %
She is 3rd on points won off first serve at 71 %.

I think its pretty impressive considering all the problems she has had on her serve the last couple years. Now upset Maria please!
