Re: Roland Garros 2009: expect the unexpected

maybe we should already be focusing on grass? Venus and Serena are going to give everything to win the French... this leaves Wimbledon wide open, and with Kardon's help... who knows Ana made a SF there already losing to grassGOAT... But this thread is about the French Open

If we have to expect the same from Ana and Lebron, we'are in the good way.

Re: Roland Garros 2009: expect the unexpected

Ana can pump herself up for this on her own, she has to. I expect the unexpected, but i also expect some real effort. If her game is still missing here, then shes just going to have to find other ways to press on. If she loses a match here, i just want to know she gave everything she had in the tank. That might be expecting too much given the thread name, but she knows how big this is. Its not too much to ask for a focused and determined Ana here. And if she can bring her serve too, then that would be

Re: Roland Garros 2009: expect the unexpected

I have to think Ana will make an effort.. I mean, she cares for this tournament, she has to bring something extra. I hope to see the fight in her.

she also cared about AO being her favorite slam... I don't want to expect anything, every win is a plus right now I guess. Ana and her fairytales world

Yes, you are right.. I guess we should just wait and see how things go. I hope Ana can at least be healthy for RG and that she doesn't lose in the first round.

Re: Roland Garros 2009: expect the unexpected

Ana never lost a 1st round of a grandslam. If it happens now I call it unexpected.

Ana defended her Berlin title with a SF.
In Indian Wells it was a final.
At RG she goes 1 step further?

Both unexpected, but that's at least 1 thing we could expect.
