Btw, is it me or does Ana look to have gained more weight? The only positive I have from today is that she looked great to me.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Slow fat girl without a serve lost to a slow skinny girl without a clue. That's pretty much the summary of this match.
Ajde Ana, don't lose to JJ. Don't fall to that "we're friends now" bs. She hates you, she laughs at you, hammer her.

Happy birthday.

That's all I'm going to say about this hell of a match.
Happy birthday, Izzy.

I'm sure you'll be rewarded by Ana's next match, JJ always brings out the best of Ana.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

I think it is actually good that Ana had tough match in early round and managed to win. It is very good for self confidence. She should be better than Jelena in two, since she is defensive player and not in form, unlike Chan who was bombing those balls like crazy, Ana was not prepared for a 100+ player to play that good like Chan did. If Ana beats Jelena and secures R4 clash with Radwanska, it will be real challenge, but I think Ana could overpower Aga with her forehands. Let's wait and see what happens.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Ok.. now that its not my birthday anymore, I feel like I can get moody talking about that hell of a match Ana played against Chan.

Really.. only positive is that she somehow managed to win, and winning ugly is always important. But OMG level of tennis was horrorific. Ana's BH is in its worst state ever.. did she even hit BHs during off season? She just lifts it up in the middle of the court, always short, and its punished by anyone. Her game has NO weapons now.. FH is completely bleh.. anyone can defend it.. serve is as unreliable as ever. She was being toyed around by Chan... imagine if she played Radwanska?! I'm not even going to imagine what it would be like against Sharapova or Serena.. just hit off court as if she had no power. My commentator kept saying that tennis Ana was playing was disturbing.. really.

I hope she shows up a completely different and better player tomorrow against JJ, otherwise I can't see her winning.. even if JJ is also only a shadow of her former self. Ana needs to step it up!

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Does this matchup make anyone else a little sad? It does to me for some reason I don't know.. it's just kind of sad to see how these two have fallen

I have always loved it when these two play. In my opinion, it's like the only rivalry of note that has been established in like the last 6-7 years. I hope it's a good match. But I doubt it will be. Both are in poor form, are struggling with some sort of physical issue, etc. I would have loved it to have been on Rod Laver Arena, but oh well. I am kinda nervous, not gonna lie. I just hope Ana manages to lift her level from yesterday, god knows she'll have to.

Yes, it's a rivalry that never really came true, they never even played a WTA final against each other. I want to see them play each other, but this is too early, one of them will lose 120 points now.

I have a feeling that Jelena is going to step it up. I really don't know though, it's pointless trying to predict with Ana, I'm never right

I was thinking before, even though none of us have met, I've "known" some of you for 4 years! It would be nice to share a big success in Ana's career with you
