Re: ~Ana's articles~

Ana is going to play Marbella! WOW! Surprising..

Ivanovic y Azarenka, estrellas invitadas al Andalucia Tennis Experience
La tercera edición del torneo marbellí no coincidirá con la Semana Santa
31.01.11 - 12:12 -
PEDRO LUIS ALONSO

El Andalucía Tennis Experience encara ya su tercera edición camino de una lenta consolidación. La principal apuesta en organización de competiciones por parte de la Consejería de Turismo y Deportes de la Junta de Andalucía es este torneo tenístico del circuito WTA, que este año presenta como principales jugadoras invitadas a la serbia Ana Ivanovic y a la bielorrusa Victoria Azarenka.
La cita se ha presentado hoy en la sede en Málaga de Turismo Andaluz, con presencia del consejero, Luciano Alonso; la alcaldesa de Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, y la directora del torneo, Conchita Martínez. El tercer Andalucía Tennis Experience se desarrollará entre el 2 y el 10 de abril, y por ello esta vez no coincidirá con la Semana Santa, lo que en años anteriores ha podido ser un inconveniente cara a la afluencia de aficionados a las pistas de tierra batida del Club de Tenis Puente Romano de Marbella.
El torneo, con una dotación de 220.000 dólares en premios, cuenta con un presupuesto de 1,8 millones de euros, y la organización parte de la Junta de Andalucía en colaboración con la empresa Octagon. Paralelamente al torneo femenino de tenis habrá una competición similar para jugadores en silla de ruedas.
Entre la participación confirmada para el cuadro final, de 32 jugadoras (cuatro invitadas y otras tantas clasificadas a través de la fase previa), hay que destacar a la que fuera número uno mundial Ana Ivanovic y a la 'top ten' Victoria Azarenka. Asimismo, ha confirmado su presencia la finalista de las dos últimas ediciones Carla Suárez.

Re: ~Ana's articles~

I was expecting Ana to add a MM on clay.. but I honestly thought she would add Estoril or Barcelona. It's quite surprising that she chose to play Marbella, though they are likely to be the small tournament that pays more money for appearance fees. Serena, Kim and JJ have played in previous years.

It's surprising as well because it's the week following Miami, but maybe Ana is already foreseeing her usual early exit in Key Biscayne.

So, the schedule would look like this:

Pattaya
Dubai
Doha
week off
IW
Miami
Marbella
week off (Fed Cup is played this week. Wonder if Ana will play.)
week off (Sttutgart is played this week)
week off (Estoril/Barcelona are played this week)
Madrid
Rome
week off (Brussels is played this week)
RG

Yay! for Marbella!
Ana never went far in Miami, so why would that change this year?

I'm not sure if I'd rather want to see her take two weeks off after Marbella and then play Barcelona/Madrid/Rome, take another week off and then FO or if I want her to play Marbella, week off, Stuttgart, week off, Madrid & Rome, week off, FO...
Taking a week off between tournaments could help her fix things that may not work during the tournaments, but having two weeks off could help her re-charge her batteries a little.

I'm not sure what would be better either.. and then maybe she decides to play Fed Cup.. who knows? I'm surprise by the timing.. totally thought she would add Estoril or Barcelona. Maybe she won't add any other tournament on clay..

Re: ~Ana's articles~

Ana is interviewed for famous French L'Equipe and main subject of that article (Ivanovic en cavalier seul) is Ana's coach situation after she fire AvG.

Here is Google translation of this L'Equipe article:

It's decided. Freshly separated from his coach Antonio Van Grichen, Ana Ivanovic will now without a coach. The former World No. 1 still seeking his best not travel more now unless we have a sparring partner and his physical preparation Marija Lojanica, his former school teacher. Target for Serbian: give free rein to his imagination tennis. "It's nice to have some kind of tactical plan or by entering the short but I feel that if I play well, regardless of my opponent, I win, says Ivanovic. That's why I do not stress with the tactics of the game "

But if the player recognizes the benefits that can make a coach, she said that sometimes it can make things more complicated than they actually are. "You always need someone to set up practices, someone to judge whether an hour of training is sufficient or if it takes an hour and a half to two hours. A coach feels it all, "she confesses. But sometimes it gets so technical that one forgets what one has to do. "

"I know I have to work hard and I do not need someone to remind me every day."

Serbia wants the pretty therefore give a break to his brain. For now, it does not seek an alternate remedy for the departure of Van Grichen and prefers to give time to see how things evolve. At 23, she thinks to know enough to do without the services of a coach. "I am a hard worker. At 14 or 15 years, have put up little routines and then we need someone to advise us and push us. But for me now I know what my goals. I know I have to work hard and I do not need someone to remind me every day. "Verdict imminent" Ana new version of "Ivanovic will make his first steps without a coach on court against Patty Schnyder in the first round of the tournament in Dubai. Sz.S

Због свега тога Српкиња је одлучила да је боље да буде без тренера док не нађе неког ко је у потпуности разуме.

- Узела сам одмор и имам само спаринг партнера и једно време нећу тражити никога. Уздам се у себе и напоран рад јер са 14 и 15 година када тек тражиш рутину потребан ти је неко ко ће те гурати и говорити ти шта да радиш.

I know its on Serbian, but it saya that Ana is not going to search for another coach for some time
But she seems full of confidence

Wow!This is the first time that I've really felt discouraged about Ana this year.I'm holding back full judgment b/c Ana deserves a chance to prove herself...to show that she truly CAN handle her business on her own without a coach.However,if she really already had that self-assurance within her,then why did she even bother hiring AVG in the first place???The quotes above remind me more of the false self-hyping Ana from 2009-early 2010 than the realist who confessed her problems and seemed to be working on them.....Let's hope that I'm as dead wrong about my perspective as I was about Pattaya

Same article again in English-

http://uk.reuters.com/article/2011/0...71C05R20110213

Quote:
"It's nice when you have sort of a little bit of a plan and tactics when you go on the court, but also I feel that if I play well it doesn't matter against who I play, I'm going to win. And that's why I'm not so stressed about tactics," Ivanovic said ahead of the Dubai Championships which start on Monday.


Quote:
"But sometimes it just becomes so technical that you forget what you're doing. If you start thinking about how you come down the stairs and think about how each muscle is working you can't go down the stairs. Anyway I'm a person who over-thinks and over-analyses everything, so if you give me one thought it creates a lot more.

"So now I'm just taking a break and having a sparring partner and I'm not trying to look for someone, and see how that goes.
Seems she found Van Grichen very frustrating. I dont like this way of looking at it, though. Almost sounds like shes making excuses for not wanting some help.
I think Ana needs to ask herself, what is it specifically that i am looking for out of a coach? The coach has to have some specific purpose for Ana.
She is confident about her tactics when she is playing well, I like that part.
The technical side though, to me that is all she needs out of a coach. Someone to keep an eye on her matches and practices, sort of like a watcher.
I want a coach that has done his homework , watched thousand's of hours of Ivanovic tape, knows what a properly working Ivanovic is supposed to look like, and accepts the fact that he/she isnt going to be creating anything new. No 'fixing' things that arent broken. Only doing the necessary maintenance to prevent the things that are already working well from becoming broken.
Apparently Ana has had enough and doesnt want a coach at all though.
I guess like Ana says, lets see how this goes.

Re: ~Ana's articles~

I'm trying to think of a reason to defend her decision not to have a coach,but i can't. She need a coach. This could be huge for her career and she is still very impulsive with her decisions.
Meh...Ana and Marija,the new "Thelma & Louise".
