It's all about the mind

Anna K has the game to be a top 10 player and win titles, but she doesn't have the mind for it. The final today shows us that.

Anna K now leads Anna S 3-2 in their head-to-head. Her two losses to Anna S were in the SF and final of smaller tournaments...in other words, when Anna K had a *real* shot to win a title. In a "normal" round of a tournament, Anna K beats Anna S.

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

Yeah. I called it for Anna S. simply because it was a final. Smashnova is a grity competitor who makes her opponent win a match. She doesn't fold or give up. I thought Anna was going to need some help to win because her nerves would be a factor. Still, Anna K hasn't been in a final for quite a while, and she might take encouragement from this result although not so much from losing to this opponent. (Although, I have to say that Anna K has lost to lesser players than Smashnova)
