2014 European spring: Grass is for cows, right?
 
GRASS SEASON



We all know that Ana's been a real scrub on grass for years now and I don't think anyone here has any expectations on the fastest surface.

Last time she's made some QF or more on grass was in 2011 when she reached semis in Birmingham. Her career record on grass is pretty poor (31-19), even though she was the semifinalist of The Championships back in 2007. Also, only 2 QFs and 2 SFs on grass is a bad result for a player of Ana's caliber who has been on Tour for 10 years.

She's scheduled to play 2 tournaments on grass this season:
- Birmingham
- Wimbledon

Let's see how bad good she'll be this year. Maybe she can make damage this year? We won't know until it starts - it will be a MYSTERY.

AJDE!
I guess.

I like the thread title :lol:

Hopefully she can bring some of her Aussie form in Europe after weak February/March. :cheer:

It is also very important that Ana gains as much possible points as she can get in Monterrey, because she might be a bit tired after FED cup for Stuttgart where she defends QF.

I like clay season. It is my favourite part of the year together with summer in America (Stanford - US Open)

Ana needs good clay season. My bigest wish for her is to have deep run at RG (SF maybe?) She neeeds big results on clay, because in my opinion, she is still top 5 player on clay from current active players.

The final in Mexico, Stuttgart and Rome will be important for RG seeding if Ana can't defend her SF points in Madrid.

No way. Sorana is playing (party time), and Ana has a great chance to test herself against Halep and Sorana before important clay tournaments. + She became Fed Cup Goat in last two seasons, she loves to play it. :)


I fully expect Ana and Jovana to play singles matches for Serbia this time.

But is it confirmed already that she'll play fed cup?

Who is exactly the ruler here?

Yes it is. Couple of weeks ago. Only if Ana decides not to play, but I really doubt it will happen. She is in good form, motivated, and plays good tennis at FED Cup lately.
