I'm sorry, maybe I'm a big too negative, but I thought a long break could help Ana resettle and set new goals. She could come back hungry for win more in 2009.
Anyway this is her quarter in Moscow:
Vera Zvonareva (7) - Maria Kirilenko
Qualifier - Daniela Hantuchova
Dominica Cibulkova - Marion Bartoli
BYE - Ana Ivanović (4)
I'll be happy if she gets to the QFs, she doesn't have much chance against Bepa if she plays the way she does in the last tournaments. Marion & Domi aren't a pushovers either, Ana must play well to beat them.
Oh Ana's draw is not the best..Look on the second round - I suppose that Marion will be her opponent and she is playing very well on hardcourt indoors..But I say It all depends on Ana if she will be mentally and physically ok or not...She cannot make as many UE as she made in Asia..She needs to find her rhytm again I hope that she will do it in Moscow..GL,Ana!

It`s not easy but not that bad she could have Na Li in first round like Sveta
Since she has a bye she will probably play on Wednesday or Thursday
I`m also staying positive and hope for some good results
I wish I could believe in her! I'm really trying and telling myself that she can beat everybody in this draw when she's on top of her game!!!! Somehow it's hard though...
I won't ever stop believing in her but it's not easy when she doesn't seem do believe herself
So.. Ana has entered the doubles competition as well. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this.. what do you guys think?

Anyway.. she will only play maximum a couple of matches.. as I don't think Ana and Schiavonne could beat Black/Huber. But.. is this a sign that she doesn't think she can do well in singles, and is trying only to get more match play.. or she wants to play doubles so she can get more rythm for singles?
