Anna doesn't let her hair down often, it seems(I've found exactly ZERO such pics so far) but--IF you're lucky enough to catch such a photo--I'll bet you the resemblance is even more striking.
No I don't see any resemblance but since I don't share your love for Sweet Caroline that could be selective vision in my part.


Lux SF: Penko def Blnky 3-6 6-3 6-2

Ana started really well but lost out on the second and very few players could have done much the way Penko was bashing in the third. Still another excellent week, up to 59 in the Live Rankings.

Re: Anna Blinkova 💗BLINKYLOVEEE💗

This would have been a favorable match for Anna a few months ago, but it may be more challenging now that her opponent seems to have rekindled at least some of the desire she showed back in her RG-winning days. If Anna wins tmrw, then she may have to beat the defending champ in the final. Regardless of the eventual foe, this would be another breakthrough moment for Blinky

No way, the more time passes she reminds me more and more of Lisicki if anyone.

Re: Anna Blinkova 💗BLINKYLOVEEE💗

This probably isn't an easy question to answer, but I'm wondering how good Anna can be in her career. What do commentators say about her potential upside(?), keeping in mind that she just turned 21 and still has room to grow, emotionally speaking.

It's pretty obvious from my sig that Anna reminds me of Caro, physically...and Anna won her first title in the same town where Caro dominated for years. Now that Caro's retirement from the sport is imminent, maybe I'm being unfair by asking Anna to serve as a replacement, of sorts.

Anyhow, it seems clear that Blinky made some big strides this season, with more consistent success than ever before, so there is at least SOME basis to hope that she will continue rising in the rankings, right?.......

Not only did Anna dominate her match today to set up a battle with her countrywoman(the H2H is 1-1, with Anna taking the most recent in that 1st-rd. RG fight this year), she helped make history, sort of. Here are the QFs in Lux.(in bracket order) :

Ostapenko
Lottner
Gasparyan
Anna
Siegemund
Rybakina
Puig
Goerges

OMG!! Even in the WTA, you're not going to see a QF which is THAT collectively beautiful except once every five or ten years, maybe. I mean, a QF where every gal could pass for a Miss Universe finalist, and Blinky, quite arguably, would be among the last handful to determine the pageant winner.......Okay, tangent complete. Anna has a decent shot at her 2nd career MM SF(both this season), and it would be far from shocking if she won her 2nd title, though beating defending champ Goerges in the final would be tough. Best of all, Anna is raising her ranking enough that she'll be getting direct entry into the 48- and 64-player Premiers very soon

Coco looked exhausted so nice first round for Blinky. Next she plays Tatjana Maria who she beat here last year. Always a tricky match but hopefully Blinky can progress - these courts really suit her.
While it's true that Anna had more rest time, Gauff is only 15 years old and has played an accordingly light schedule, plus she had a full day of rest after traveling from Linz, so she doesn't have much excuse like an older player with less rest would have; Blinky just beat her soundly. Anna now has(or SHOULD have) the confidence of having won her first title, so this next match is a winnable one even though she lost their last H2H encounter. Anna chose well in coming to Lux. instead of Moscow

Re: Anna Blinkova 💗BLINKYLOVEEE💗

Tough loss for Anna, losing in 3 sets to an in-form player, but reaching a first MM SF is a nice achievement. IMO, that was worth missing a killer draw in Wuhan where even the QD had mostly previous tour title-winners.

Re: Anna Blinkova 💗BLINKYLOVEEE💗

Anna follows up her first title with her first SF at the MM level--now on an 8-match win streak. The next opponent will be a challenge, but Anna has previously faced even much better players and represented herself well.
