01. Tokyo
02. Beijing
03. Moscow
04. Zurich
05. YEC

Is this correct?
I think she's playing Linz instead of Moscow. Unless she changed it?

There's no doubt that Ana will pick her form, it's just a matter when. Let's hope it starts in Tokyo. AJDE!

Re: ana will rise again in the land of the rising sun

I wonder why she would skip the Tier I of the indoor season to play another Tier II?

Now that you mention it, I'm sure that you're correct. This is great news. I was hoping that she could face as little pressure as possible in her next tournament.

Re: ana will rise again in the land of the rising sun

So Ana is not defending her Luxembourg title? I think that's a good actually the pressure defending a title is the last thing she needs now

Re: ana will rise again in the land of the rising sun

Luxembourg has been downgraded to Tier III status this year, correct?

Re: ana will rise again in the land of the rising sun

according to upcoming tournaments section its a tier III
i dont see any reason to defend tier 2's the following year anyway though, if the points are the same at a different tournament, go try something else. plus Luxembourg is so hard to watch with the weird camera angle

Yes. I was so frustrated with it last year.

Whoops Didn't know Luxembourg was downgraded. After the last 2 months Ana will be hungry to attack the indoor season

Look out

Re: ana will rise again in the land of the rising sun

I was just rewatching the second set of the RG final. Ana played so brilliantly. Her forehand was on fire, but her rallying abilities were amazing as well. Basically everything about her game was so drastically different than what we saw at the USO this year. Hopefully she can get back to that level this fall.

Re: ana will rise again in the land of the rising sun

^hope so. For me i have to learn things the hard way, or i never learn. Failure can be rewarding in the long run.

question for anyone that wants it- what are some of the main problems in technique that you observe when errors are flying off Ana's forehand?
I watched both USO matches in foreign commentary, but my observation is that she was striking the ball from more to her side and not out in front like she does when its on. I cant really put it in good words Anyone have a good analysis, or what to look for on the errors when watching a match?

Yeah. She's not hitting her forehand properly, but I think that the problems are due to rest and a lack of confidence. I'm sure that her team will be working on the forehand side extensively in the weeks leading up to Tokyo. When her forehand is "on," it's extremely reliable and penetrates the court beautifully. But, as we've seen, when it's off...
