Why are ppl forgetting about Ivanovic????

UM Venus 1st has to get my marta and then she migh tface ivanovic. I don't even know why people are counting her out like she ranked 9862101561 or someting. How is she playing?

She's playing really well and many people are mistakenly assuming that Venus will wipe the court with her again. These things can never be assumed, each match is a different story. She has a very favorable draw through to the QF's and then a good shot at going further.

Re: Why are ppl forgetting about Ivanovic????

They are ignoring her because :

Venus is facing her for the 3rd straight GS.
Venus has never lost a set to her.
Venus beats the hell out of her.
Venus eats up her game and spits it out harder.

Re: Why are ppl forgetting about Ivanovic????

I love Ana, but I wouldn't rate her chances against Vee. Venus has had a tough draw with some tricky players and has come through well.

Although I don't agree with everyone saying Ana will have her arse handed to her. Yes their matches have always been 2 setters but at wimbledon and USO Venus was on fire and both their matches had a 6-4 set, which is hardly one sided

Venus doesn't look as good as she did at times in 07, so I think it may be close. But I will still go with Vee. Power hitters vs WS don't do well. I think she has her number on speed dial

Re: Why are ppl forgetting about Ivanovic????

im not sure... but..
1: Ana plays similar to Sania, and Sania has a more explosive forehand
2: Her backhand is still the same
3: Her forehand can be soo attackable if venus hits that CC loopy forehand..
4: Vee is playing OK..!!! and thats good..

Ana is so much better than Sania, please don't compare her to her and suggest that Venus will beat Ana because she already beat Sania.

As for the thread, people are counting Ana out because she has yet to prove she can beat Venus. She has a chance, but even as a fan of hers, I'm not counting on it.

Re: Why are ppl forgetting about Ivanovic????

Ana might have a chance against Vee here. It is a slower surface than either Wimbledon or U.S. Open and Venus is not playing as well as she was then.

Still, Venus will have the psychological edge.

And, if Venus wants this, then Ana will have a tough road ahead trying to overcome a determined Venus in the latter stages of a Grand Slam tournament when she has not even taken a set off of her in four previous matches.

Re: Why are ppl forgetting about Ivanovic????

Maybe because Ana has routine wins with easy opponents and at the moment she proves nothing, without a real test on court.

Re: Why are ppl forgetting about Ivanovic????

We haven't forgotten her. It's really because right now there is more interest and action in the top half especially with all these big matches now coming up. And the top half matches are played first. So we know the matchups for the next round sooner. If / When we get to a situation with Venus playing Ana - there'll be lots of posts.

Re: Why are ppl forgetting about Ivanovic????

I am not counting her out. Yes, all matches are different but going by history and the fact that Vee is healthy and playing well, I will have to go with Venus winning should they meet.

Re: Why are ppl forgetting about Ivanovic????

Noones forgetting her. but Venus really is just a bad match up for her....and the fact is, she barely got a set off of Justine (her only set against the big three) serving in the 40% range....If Venus continues to show up....shes in the final, the bottom half just needs to hope she has an off day....
