Ana's Summer Swing Session (Until US Open)
 
Hopefully Ana will have a successful summer! Although she lost badly to Vika, lets try and remember that she beat a seeded player and won two three set matches to reach the fourth round.
Ana's Schedule
August 7: Rogers Cup
August 13: Cincy



Not a very long summer season but hopefully she will use the off time to train.

P.S: Sorry about the title :(

Olympics belong to Grass season.
Rogers Cup we should to ignore.
Cincy not deserve own thread :p

So better rename this thread into something like US Open (& fast hardcourts) thread, which will include Rogers Cup, Cincinnati, USO, Beijing and Tokyo.

I think Olympics is still grass season. Otherwise from Montreal till USO its US hard court summer season.

Montreal draw will be made next monday at 2pm local time. 1st round play to start on tuesday.

Ana will be seeded 11, since Serena is not scheduled to play. So she will get one of Kvitova, Kerber, Caro or Errani in the dreaded 3rd round. That's not too bad actually..

There are only 16 seeds, so a lot of good players will be unseeded and looming, and 1st and 2nd rounds might not be easy.

Ana is defending 125 points from the 3rd round she reached in Toronto last year.

Results from Montreal and Cincy will determine the seedings for the US Open. I think its crucial to keep a top 12 seed. It will be Ana's last shot to post a relevant result in a relevant tournament this season, and it would be better to get one of Sam (pressure of defending title), Kvitova (sucks on courts of the USA), Kerber (pressure of defending semis, 1st tournament she is actually defending big points this season), Caro (hasn't been as good this year), then one of Serena, Vika, Sharapova and Aga. Though now that I'm writting this, I realize Sam, Kerber and Caro were all in the semis last year, while Vika and Sharapova lost in the 3rd round and Aga in the 2nd. :lol: Anyway, this is a new year, and top 4 seems very hard to beat.

A QF at Montreal is what I'm hoping for.. keep some momentum going.

Yes... I'm hoping for at least that as well. Lets see if Ana can finally reach her 3rd QF of the year.

Ivanovic practicing. Alone with a hitting partner who may be a local guy. No coach. No parents. Like a grownup

Nigel must be in London to celebrate his son-in-law's (or whatever's) rigged gold.

Wasn't Stephanie Myles in the center of RC campaign "Let's crap on Ana" back in 2010? It's pathetic how she sucks up to her now like nothing happened.

Yes.. and Yes... but hey.. the moment Ana decided to go back to this tournament, she was helping the ones who didn't help her.. :tape:
