Why, are you expecting the subforum to be closed or something?

For me, it's anathema to put 2013 stuff in the 2012 thread. You should get Joe. to rename it, or start a new one. That's my vote, at any rate.

Re: 2012 Season

At least she qualified......thats not a bad start. If she can qualify for Melbourne then this could be a better year yet.

Re: 2012 Season

She did well to qualify, Peng was not a good draw for her.

On to the Australian Open we go.

Re: 2012 Season

Re: 2012 Season

Sadly Anne lost her 1R Qualifying match to Grace Min 7-5 7-5, I starting to think this is it for Keothavong now...

Re: 2012 Season

Kinda expected, but still...

Just not sure how motivated she'll continue to be with losses like this.

Re: 2012 Season

Anne did say a few years back she was not content to play the tour being ranked down in the hundreds.

Does anybody think the success of Robson and Watson has affected Anne in a negative way?

Re: 2012 Season

If Johanna Konta qualifies then she no doubt leapfrog Keothavong in the rankings...

Re: 2012 Season

I personally don't think it has much, if anything, to do with Laura and Heather.

The bad form has pretty much been there since the beginning of 2011. Only a brief run of form at the end of 2011 kept her in top 100 for 2012, and once those points were off, she plummeted. So it doesn't really seem that it can be because of the youngsters. I think she is just coming to the end of her career, and lacks real fight.

She served for both sets today, and in fact was up 52 with a DOUBLE break in the second set.

Re: 2012 Season

She has never had the mental toughness of a Baltacha or the natural talent of a Watson or Robson..its a real shame but maybe this is the end for Anne...

Re: 2012 Season

I actually think she is quite talented, her groundstrokes are easily top 50 material when she is 'on'

But she has horrendous shot selection, and mentally she is incredibly weak. Shame.

Re: 2012 Season

It's a shame because throughout the 'noughties' she was, without a doubt, the most successful Women's British tennis player.

5 WTA Semi Finals including one in a Premier tournament.
3rd round of the US Open in '08.
19 ITF Titles (1 $100k, 1 $75k, 4 $50k, 7 $25k, 7 $10ks)
Career High of #48.
Over $1,200,000 in prize money.

It's such a shame she's lost total form
