But.. a win is a win.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

We must stay strong in these trying times...

A 6-0 6-4 win is hard to complain about

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

So she has a new hitting partner then? Joe Sirriani I think is his name? Good move. The match was pretty iffy, but I guess I can cut her some slack just because it was her first this year.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

great start of Ana. I saw this match and she made a lot of progress, her serve is more consistency, she moves well, she's more agressive I was really impress, I think with more confidence everything will be OK.

Yes.. he can be seen in some practice pics with Ana. He was an ATP player..

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

For the first match of the year 6-0 6-4 is a pretty strong result. Hopefully, she´ll keep this form during the serious matches as well.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Didn't see the match but 0 and 4 against Francesca sounds pretty decent. Some reports suggest otherwise, which could only mean that Francesca was quite bad... Anyway, not sure at this stage, but it was a win nonetheless.

Happy New Year everyone! Off to sleep I go, for the first time in 2013...

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

It's a nice start. Even amazing if we have in mind that she started with a 6-0 set won. Look how Stosur, Wozniacki, Kuznetsova and Cibulkova started badly, Venus and Kerber were struggling. Ana did a nice job and I believe this is her first step to new amazing season, 2013. Will be the best since 2008.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Encouraging start! Hope she carries her form from Moscow and Fed Cup to the AO. Ideally I would love her to defend her 4R points

Look, I normally don't like to be negative, but I can't see things changing this year. The first top player she meets, maybe even Venus this week, will eat those serves and weak ground strokes. She does seem relaxed and in a positive frame of mind, so maybe she build some better form into the season. For that to happen, a lot of things need to go right so that she can carry her confidence through.

I can't see her breaking back into the top 10 for now though. I hope to death that I'm wrong.

I agree.. also, top players will make sure she hits 100% more BHs.. and Ana's BH is abysmal.. she cant stand any ground with it whatsoever.

Ana would need to raise her level incredibly to have any shot against a top player. Considering she will be seeded 13 at AO, cant expect much..
