Well Eggy, who do you think will win between Anna and Ashley?

TheBoiledEgg Jan 29th, 2002 08:37 PM

they haven''t played before, its indoors so it should favor Anna.

but not to discount Ashley.

it should be underway in around 90 mins or so.

Best of luck Anna , strike those groundies big and hard and take the net away from Ashley.

best luck Anna in the maindraw now :)

Congrats to Anna B!

So how old is this one, Eggy?? Does she have the qualities I look for in a tennis player fave? ie:
Mentally tough, humble attitude, aggressive style of play, lack of concern with glamour and celebrity (in other words, Monica Part 2 ;) ?

TheBoiledEgg Jan 30th, 2002 08:20 AM

Janie ..... she turned 16 in November.

She's a blonde one :) a bit like Anna.

Around 5'8, slim and plays aggressive and a good volleyer.

She is very nice and humble.

Congrats Anna! :bounce:

TheBoiledEgg Jan 30th, 2002 07:06 PM

Anna plays Svetlana Krivencheva laer today.

she is 3rd on court around 2pm (Chicago time)

TS Jan 30th, 2002 07:12 PM

Looks like another one to look out for! ;) Good luck to her in Rockford! I'll keep an eye out for her progress.

Eggy, or anyone else for that matter, who do u think is the brightest prospect out of the following young Russians?


others Ive missed? :o

Im familiar with Sveta & Maria game-wise as Ive seen them both play live...but dont really know much about the rest except that Vera won the Orange Bowl last 2 years running...all seem very talented from what Ive heard/read etc.
I have no doubt Sveta will be a top player one day, and Maria definately seems to have 'it'. Oh well, time will tell ;)

Anyway, this is an Anna thread, so cheers to Anna B! :)

auntie janie Jan 30th, 2002 07:41 PM

Thanks for the info, Eggy! I will jump on the ANNA B bandwagon right NOW!! :bounce:

I don`t see Anna B. as hot as Dinara or Masha Sharapova, but she can impress in the near future.

the cat Jan 30th, 2002 08:32 PM

Udachi Anna B!
