Re: 2015 Season Start: Ana's journey begins down under.

So, Ana won't be wearing that other blue dress we discussed a few weeks ago but THIS ONE:

I definitely like it better.

Pretty much this, because that dress is basically the epitome of mediocrity in fashion design.

Re: 2015 Season Start: Ana's journey begins down under.

Hey guys, time flies, I can't believe new season will start in less than 3 weeks. I hope everyone is happy and planning holiday season.

I can hardly wait for Brisbane. Like last season, start might be crucial, so I would obviously want Ana to win Brisbane. But, would that be considered "peaking" too soon? Maybe SF at Brisbane and title in Melbourne? Most definitely 2015 might be crucial season for the rest of Ana's career. What are your thoughts, expectations? In recent statements, Ana bolded slams are priority this time, she dreams about 2nd GS title. I want her to win it in 2015, with being consistent in top 8. I'd like her to join top 3 at some point, but slam is definitely more important.

I'd be pleased with 1 GS title in new season and a semifinal at one more.

yeah i was only daydreaming lol im with you, however all she needs to do is transmit her best tennis for 2 weeks at a time and i think if she can get over that hurdle and win one then its easier to win more (for example the unfortunate Rodzilla sex drought of 2002-2008 i thought i would never have sex again so everytime i got close i got nervous and blew it but then finally it happened and then the next time was easier it happened the next week because i was more confident)

She can win a slam in 2015 but she needs to win a Mandatory and/or a P5 1st (winning 5 or 6 matches in 1 tournament) then she will be ready to win 7 matches in a slam. A good start of the season in Australia is very important to keep her ranking as 5 which wont be that hard (Radwanska and Bouchard will defend SF points) and with her ranking she can find herself a top4 seed in a big premier where she can start winning bigger titles then she can appear consistently in slam SFs for 2 years and win one or more.
