If my predictions go well and Ana does win her 3rd title of the season on clay, then she'll probably re-enter top 10.
Let's hope that title will be Stuttgart

Errani is already out of top 10.
I mean, she's going to need to overcome Maria and Sara, as Cibulkova's form is very well right now. She will jump over Sara to get to 11, and she will probably have to jump over Maria to get to 10.

True. Not gonna be easy. Pennetta only 10 points less then Ana, so she'll need to get rid of her as well.

This would be a perfection of a clay season:

Win one title and reach SF at RG. The rest of two tournaments would be whatever in that case.

Re: 2014 European spring: The clay is more red when it's 400love

Ana have a great chance to pass Errani and Sharapova this clay season

A good chance to still above Pennetta

But to pass Dominica she have to win Madrid or Rome or make a RG final >>>if she did so she will pass JJ and Kerber too

Re: 2014 European spring: The clay is more red when it's 400love

You guys have some unrealistic expectations right now.. this is still the Ana who flunked IW and Miami, and played like crap in Doha and Dubai. Its great she won Monterrey.. and I always have hopes for a good clay season... but lets take it easy.. she hasn't done well in a big WTA tournament yet this year.

Yes, but this is also the Ana who beat Serena, Venus, and Kerber, and bageled Kirsten. Sometimes you just need to focus on the positives to get yourself through. It's better to go in with a positive attitude than a bad attitude, that's the only way you can ever get through anything.

Well it must be a matter of preference then.. I rather be ready for whatever may be ahead and have my feet on the ground, than be too positive and feel even more disappointed when things just don't happen the way I was hoping for. I've been burned way too many times.. more than I can even count.

Hopefully Ana does go into every match with a positive attitude though.. and not the one she displayed in IW and Miami.

Re: 2014 European spring: The clay is more red when it's 400love

So guys, what do you expect from Stuttgart? I am not really sure, because Ana might be a bit tired from Fed Cup. She'll have only 1 day to rest (probably will play 1st match on tuesday).

Otoh, I have a strong feeling that she'll draw seed for opening round. Possibles: Jankovic, Kvitova, Sharapova, Errani.

Re: 2014 European spring: The clay is more red when it's 400love

Ti be frank, I'm not expecting anything from Fed Cup ot Stuttgart. What I REALLY, really want is at least a QF at RG.

Ana usual consistently gets to the quarters here... even though I want her to win a title, as long as she gets to the quarters, (possibly taking down Sharapova or Errani, two of her main rivals for No. 10) I'll be fine.

I think last year was Ana's 1st ever QF in Stuttgart.
