Ana really should beat Vesnina. I'm not sure if you guys are aware, but in their previous two meetings, Vesnina hasn't even managed to break Ana once.

I mean.. yes, you've described Ana perfectly.. you also described why her career has become a failure and stalled.

So yes, all that happens regularly.. yes, Ana is easy to predict.. but all that should change radically if she ever wants to be relevant as a tennis player again.
This. I know some of you don't like Maria, but seriously, Ana has to take her career like Maria. Endorsements are endorsements, parties are parties, but tennis is tennis. Tennis is her career, she has to put it as the priority. She is turning to 26 later this year, not that young anymore, so I hope she could take her career a little bit more serious.

Re: "Grass is still grass" 2013. Eastbourne + Wimbledon

I hope Ana will play 1st round on monday(maybe there is an agreement with organizers because of importance of her presence on party to play as soon as possible). That means she can play her 2nd round match on wednesday and possibly QF on thursday 11AM. I mean, she will arrive on party on thursday night easily. However, I think it will be 2nd round exit. It is an important part of Ana Ivanovic's career to promote tennis off-court too, I realize that, and since I love her so much, I will accept that and hope for a good result at WB.

However, if there is a chance to play good at Eastbourne and go far, then Ana please play and play! I have to admit that loosing to likes of Watson and Lepchenko is not a nice thing to see.

The fact we're discussing Ana possibly tanking this tournament to attend a stupid pointless party says a lot about the current state of affairs

Losing to Watson is so cute, I know it's happening.

This.

11AM is a great thing I think. I really hope she will get to QF at least. Well Harry, we can't call pre-Wimbledon party "stupid pointless party". Being #1 star during it, means something.

Re: "Grass is still grass" 2013. Eastbourne + Wimbledon

Oh well.. we can't say we didn't expect it.

There is bad and there is that. Horrible showing. Really.. terrible. Ana totally stopped trying once she won the 1st set. It was even funny.. I mean.. she just stopped trying all together.

And then it was even more hilarious when she called Nigel while a break down in the 2nd and he was so.. "yeah, whatever, this is just your first match on grass.. just keep going." Ana asked him if she should hit to Vesnina's FH or BH... and all he could come up with was.. "doesn't matter.. do whatever you feel like in the moment.. its ok.. keep going.." Really.. as if he couldn't care less either. Don't have to mention that after that she tried even less.
