Nah. I don't think it's Ana trying to show Aga anyhing
It's probably just her lack of confidence in her own strengths.
However, there is something to it; Ana at the net is not a bad idea: Ana won 15/21, Aga 5/10.
So...yeah, it's the way to go, and she should do it more often. It's in general a good strategy - being tall, and having a good reach, if she is good at volleying, why not? It should in theory be one of her strenghts. However, being patient...to a degree yes, but to try to "outpateint" Aga and play cat and mouse...no.
Oh well, Ana is a master at trying to be someone else (and failing), and she's been successfull at that since RG.
