Going East for Success (February Thread)

So.. Ana is next playing Pattaya, Doha and Dubai.

She has a total of 190 points to defend in february (120 points from QF in Dubai and 70 points for 2nd round in Doha). This year Dubai is the P5 and Doha the P700.

It would be important to get some good results in these tournaments before having to defend 450 points in Indian Wells. I think its clear that having a top 12 seed makes a huge difference.. Facing Kvitova, Errani, Kerber or Na Li is tough but way better than taking on Serena, Maria, Aga or Vika before QFs. Ana is currently 100 points behind Nadia for number 12.

Pattaya definitely presents a good chance for points. If I'm not mistaken, Ana will be the top seed. But its in Doha and Dubai that she can get the big points.. would be good to step up there.

Re: Going East for Success (February Thread)

Lisicki is dangerous. Ugh.. I just hope she gets enough points here to get a fking top 12 seeding so she doesn't have to face the top 4 seeds in the 4R at the French Open. She was quite optimistic in her presser, but we've heard this so many times from Ana in the past. She needs to back it up. We'll see what she does in February tbh. Such a big chance to get points.

Re: Going East for Success (February Thread)

Winner of Pattaya takes 280 points, right? If Ana could enter top 10 before RG it would be great! Agreed about big difference between #12 and #13. If Ana had played two more internationals last year, she would already be at least #12 but maybe even higher ranked. Let's see how this year goes for her. Pattaya is a great place to gain more points, take #12 position and to increase self confidence.

And another place for confidence is Fed cup to kick Cibulkova and Hantuchova

I have horrible memories of Pattaya. That's where she nearly lost to Crazybas and her Italian winning streak was ended

Re: Going East for Success (February Thread)

Based on entries, I think Ana should win this and nothing less then title TBH. The only girl who might be threat is Lisicki, but even her is far beyond Ana. Ana, win this, I mean it!

Re: Going East for Success (February Thread)

My predictions for February:

MM Pattaya: Early round exit

FED CUP (Serbia vs Slovakia): Qualify for SF
Premier-5 Doha: Early round exit

Premier Dubai: at least QF (depending on Draw)

Here on TF they once called me understudy of yours and I never realized why... But Oh no, I could never be. I would never ever predict such a mess of results like you just did.

I actually expect from Ana to WIN Pattaya open, she must use the advantage of the fact that Lisicki is only threat on the tournament. FED Cup will be a great place to increase self confidence by beating Hantu and Cibu before Doha and Dubai where spot in quarterfinals would be decent results I think. Go Ana!

I will never understand "fans" of this kind. There is no real fan who can be so pessimistic like you are obviously.
