Anca won 2 doubles qualifying matches with Seda Noorlander in Charleston today.
First they beat Cho/Foretz 8-6, then Embry/Voracova 3-6 6-3 6-4. Well done! Tomorrow they will play Stevenson/Zvonareva in the main draw. Good luck!
BTW: Am I wrong, or is this the first time this year that Anca plays doubles? I was surprised not to see her in any doubles draws so far. Maybe she wanted to focus only on singles but has changed her mind now.
In singles she will play Nathalie Dechy on tuesday. Tough draw, but on clay Anca has quite a good chance.
And Adriana has won again today. She beat Alena Vaskova 6-2 6-2, that's quite impressive. Tomorrow's final round opponent is Maret Ani. Good luck!
Bad luck Anca. She came back in the 2nd set but it wasn't enough.
She was just 15 points away from the 50th spot this week, now it will be a bit more.
But when we remember what happened to Jana Kandarr after she reached the top 50 for the first time, maybe it's a good thing.
But this might still be a great event for Anca. From her WTA-bio: "Tennis player most admired is Martina Navartilova because she is a great athlete and fun to watch." And today Anca and Seda (they beat Alex/Vera in the first round) will play Martina N. and Alicia !!! Anca would probably have never dreamt of playing her idol, but now it will happen. Because of that, she will probably lose.
Adriana unfortunately lost against Ani in 3 sets. And there were 3 LL-spots, but she was the lowest ranked. But Rita Grande retired after the first set, so she could have gotten in too.
nach den verkorksten french open spielt ANCA gerade ein gutes turnier in wien. nach dem dreisatz-auftaktsieg über HENRIETA NAGYOVA schlug sie heute die nummer 5 der setzliste, CLARISA FERNANDEZ in drei sätzen und steht im viertelfinale! FERNANDEZ hatte in der ersten runde ASHLEY HARKLEROAD mit 60 60 vom court gefegt!
bravo ANCA, weiter so!
