1. I'm not talking here about Ana's performances in last 5 years, but just about last 20 months when this fitness/body issue become so obvious. Also, in this my recent predictions I'm not saying anything about Ana upcoming results till end of hers career or something like that, but just about next month February if we talking about day-to-day events.
2. You forget that MM-YEC is not classic MM tournaments. So playing just 3 matches overall to reach MM-YEC title where also is included day pause, at seasons ending tournament, is actually argument in my favor! And that MM Linz title coming from season where she worked with Heinz and don't have such fitness problems (for example, hers results at P5 events in 2010 are better than at PM, not way worse like in 2011-2012).
3. "Tank" is not best term to describe this phenom with Ana. Do You really think that Ana played well on Hopman Cup round robin, and than suddenly decide to tank FINAL!? She simple underperform thanks to fitness problems when it come to play day-to-day since 2nd half of 2011, and in other day-to-day cases add fact that she knows that her body will underperform anyway so to prevent injuries she also much more using hers back-up game (and in Ana case plan-A>>>plan-BS). That's why Ana playing already about 20 months in the row on TOP10 level at tournaments with day pause between matches, and barely on TOP100 level at events with day-to-day schedule!
4. If she not improve hers fitness and be able to recover body on daily basis - hers best shots are Indian Wells and Roland Garros, two-weekers where she is multiple finalist and former champion. With this state of fitness and body here is scenario for hers MM title: R1-bye, R2-win, QF-win by w/o, and will be very helpful if during SF or final there will be big rain-delay pauses, but if she must to win 4 matches in 5 days (normal MM/P600 schedule) - I don't see it coming any soon.

For the first time in a long time, I feel Ana is on the right track and she will be in the mix for 2013 YEC.

Yep. I've been saying I thought that physically she already looked better in Melbourne.

Also, I'm not even joking, I completely agree with Cp6uja!

Re: Going East for Success (February Thread)

He had some role in Novak's team...





He used to be in Perth with Novak few weeks ago...



And then in Melbourne with Ana...




There is a thread in MTF, Novak's subforum about him - thread title 'Nole's boyfriend'
But obviously he is in Ana's 'team' now...

Well she said something like, there is no time for boys and tennis in the same moment...
I know she is young, she needs to have someone, but we all know how her relationships reflected to her tennis!

Maybe 'shock' is to strong to say, but I'm worried...

Re: Going East for Success (February Thread)

Maybe she had something in her eye...

I wondered why this guy was with her when she arrived in Melbourne. Just quit already, get married, have babies and a beach house... This is getting ridiculous.

Like, there is no enough drama about her tennis in last few years, now this...
This is great way to start new seasson, with new 'married' boyfriend... Promising start!

Re: Going East for Success (February Thread)

i didnt know only..virgins can be successfull at tennis.Anyway,We've had this discussion before,i think whether she has a bf or not is totally irellevant to her performance.After all she was single for like 1,5 years now and results weren't much better.

I didn't say this!
I think that she just can't devote to her tennis and to her boyfriend in the same time and in the right way! She wasn't able to do that in the past!
And I think she plays much better after she broke up with Adam... Maybe those things are not connected, but that is my oppinion!
