Ps. I guess I should inject some positivity into this thread seeing as I'm mostly pretty pessimistic these days. It's really a lovely surprise for her to come out and win these last 4 matches. She's been pretty calm and relaxed, maybe there's a chance she can keep it up vs Masha

If Ana maintains the same composure I saw in that Petrova match she could win against Maria. Pulling for you Ana

Re: Red The Clay Thread 2013

If Ana understood the energy game, it would be more probable she winning tomorrow in three than in two.
Like putting all in the first set, tanking the second just making pova run and trying again in the third.
But anyway if she even knew that there's an energy game she would have got fit long before.

I think she understood that she hit the bottom in fitness this year and her last matches are a sign of a little improvement.
I remember that in her loss in Indian Wells, people said Nigel was asking about her energy and she was just saying 'I know...'.


But for tomorrow... I think it's too soon to expect a win. She has much more work to do.

Re: Red The Clay Thread 2013

Oh well.. Ana played ok.. except the non existant serve in the 3rd set..

But it was really same old.. whenever Ana had an actual chance she folded. That game at 4-4 in the third.. And the putaway she missed at 40-30 5-5 in the first..

Re: Red The Clay Thread 2013

Painful loss for Ana and us. But we can draw a lot of positives from Fed Cup and this tournament. She won 4 matches on clay . I really think and hope the claycourt season is going to be good. Just stay healthy, Ana, you'll do great, sweetheart :-)

Re: Red The Clay Thread 2013

Ana did play well, for a lot of the match. In the biggest moments she couldn't perform, but otherwise a very good match with many positives.

I hope Ana can build on this and have a good clay season.

Re: Red The Clay Thread 2013

This was so close. She fought back from being down 4-1 in the 3rd. But played a bad game @ 4all. She was impressive today though- All sets were close. She didn't give up and fought till the end(which is all we expect from her. Definitely top ten performance. I hope she takes this as a positive not a negative.

Re: Red The Clay Thread 2013

Izzy, I think Ana met the criteria this tournament for you to call it a 'good tourney' anyhow. Though this was a major fuckfest.

Yes.. I won't complain.. she barely ever makes QFs these days, we have to be happy she made one this week!

This has been a hugely positive week IMO. Of course it's frustrating that she didn't come away with the W, but we all saw plain and clear that if she can just get the mental balance right she is a top 5 contender on this surface. If Ana can keep this up on clay, and keep improving at staying calm and fighting, then I'm all in
