Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

The coverage is a fucking joke. How can they not show a match like Ana/Vika.

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

Not streamed?! What the hell?! How it comes that the Number 1 player isn't streamed?! What's up in this damn Madrid?! Ana, I believe in you and you can upset Azarenka - you know how to play against her and she - Azarenka - isn't having a good form on these courts. Do it!

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

Watching Kerber/Li, the commentators are saying that ASV court is very different from Manolo Santana - as in you can actually move!

I'm worried that Ana wont adapt well!

Ana's new facebook entry

Quote:
Frustrating loss tonight. I definitely had my chances, especially in the first set when I was leading. Unfortunately I allowed myself to get a bit down when I made mistakes at 4-1, and that cost me. But no time to dwell on it: I'll fly to Rome tomorrow!

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

It's so quiet in this sub-forum, as if her fans have started to desert her.

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

Well... I'm not sure they deserted her. She is very popular worldwide even now. But when she drops out of a tournament it does become quiet here. That's understandable. Most people post here because Ana is playing a match and they are following it, or just after a match they post pics and videos. In some other subforums maybe there is more chat about other stuff.

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

I really have big expectations of this Madrid tournament, even after draw when we know that she must to face WTA#1 already in 3rd round, player which on big and semi-big events in last 15 months only once lose before QF (its only Serena at USO/11 who beat Azarenka so early). I think Ana will calculate in Rome, so I wish hers strongest possible unseeded opponent in 1st or 2nd round where she will play her best warm-up tennis (biggest names of unseeded players will be Venus Williams and Sveta Kuznetsova), but not sure about late rounds that she will try her best less than 10 days before most important major for Ana. Good thing about this early lose in Madrid is fact that indoors blue clay is too much different to Roland Garros clay.

Ana will be for sure in 13-16 group of RG seeds, which means in fourth round (R16) she will face some of current TOP4 players. I think that upcoming RG/2012 R16 match will be potentially most important match in Ana career since RG2008! She still can beat anyone on clay (unlike at others surfaces where she much more depending on hers opponents).

Honestly I don't think that clay is her best surface anymore. She hasn't done anything special on it since RG 2008 which if you think about it quite a long time in a tennis players career especially after winning a GS on it. All of her finals and titles since than have been on hard court and it seems to be suiting her more nowadays. She is 3-3 on clay right now and isn't keeping the level she had on hard court (reaching r4 in AO, SF at IW, 4R at Miami etc). She has not reached no finals and only one semi-final on clay since 2008 and after four years of crappy clay court play and much better on hard court I feel we don't have the right to call it her best surface anymore. It may of been once but that was the past. Many things were in the past that I wish were still here today but there not and we need to accept that and stop calling her a clay-goat because she has lost that trait along with many others. Sorry to sound so pessimistic but I feel like honesty is the best way to approach Ana now instead of sugarcoating everything like she does in interviews.

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

I agree. Just like I think Maria's best surface these days is clay while I feel like Ana's is hard court. We'll see...

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

The draw will be held tomorrow, at 12 CET, in Piazza di Spagna. Seppi, Fognini, Murray, Pennetta,Schiavone and Ana will be present at the draw ceremony.

Ana and Sharapova will appear on the TV show "Open court" later this month, in CNN international. Pedro Pinto spoke to Ana in Madrid: "The Serbian player is feeling more optimistic than ever, as she is training with a solid coaching team and her ranking is improving".

No. She'll play mixed doubles with Zimonjic and JJ will play with Tipsarevic.
