Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Ana through to 4th round against Aga.

I thought it was actually a decent match between Ana and JJ today.. maybe because I was expecting a major hot mess.. Ana played WAY better than against Chan, and except for that choking stretch in which she lost 15 points in a row (from 5-2 to 5-5 in the 1st set), it was a rather clean match.

Now against Aga is a whole other level.. Ana will have to raise her game once again.. Aga is super tough to beat nowadays.. you gotta be smart and you gotta outhit her consistently. First real challenge of the year. Lets see where Ana's game actually is compared to the top players.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

7-5 6-3. Much better than yesterday.

Am I totally crazy for thinking Ana has a chance against Radwanska? Aga's on that big streak, but it's still basically up to her opponents and if they make too many errors. If Ana's serve fires and she consistently punishes Aga's serve, who knows .

She must try. If she can get a high 1st serve % and punish Aga's second serve, that's it. But Aga is so great atm.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Well, in the 4th round again and now... KILL Radwanska, SEND her home, DEVASTATE her on court, etc. Someone has to pay for Ana and Jelena meeting in the 3rd round.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

With this result, Ana has made the fourth round of at least one major every year since 2005

Last time when Ana beat JJ on Grand Slam, Ana won it, 2008 . I hope the history will repeat

No, she has the weapons, it's just a matter of how well will she use them. Ana has more power than Aga and a great attacking game. The problem is that she makes many errors if she is dragged to long rallies and I think this is exactly what Aga is going to try against her. Making her self-destruct. This match will be a test of patience for Ana. If she starts out really strong she could catch Aga by surprise IMO.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

I think that Ana can win a match against Aga. It's not impossible. She just has to play her own game and it will be fine. It's not like Aga is Serena, Aga is winnable... That's how I see it.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

I suppose it will be RLA and a night match, with a big crowd. Seriously, I think that Ana will take this in two tight sets. Ana's focus and physical condition are so better now, she started the season confident and she wants this win more than anything else.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Congrats to Ana and best of luck in the next round.

Honestly I like the fact that the old and bitter days of rivalry between JJ and Ana are finally over. Great reaction from both after the match.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

I agree that Ana can beat Radwanska by punishing her serve. She should win many quick points with her return. She needs to be smart and to overpower Aga's deffense. Ana could be surprise, I believe in that. Ana in two, that's my bet!
