Gee you have seriously problems..apoet29 said:Ajayres,
If nothing else, you are consistent.
My point is that if Anna is having trouble winning these types of events, then it is not her competition that is the problem, but it is some sort of mental block that she faces whenever she is put into a situation where she is the clear favorite to win.
Anyway, I'm sure that you'll rip this post apart as always.
I think it is funny that you state I am the one with the issues. You spend your entire time on this messageboard ripping apart everyone who does not agree with your views of Anna K.
Well that's where you are wrong.. If you have notice I really don't care what peoples opinions are of Anna.. it is an opinion, it means jac to me, however when people start stating wrong information (happens all the time) that's where I jump in and try and correct people.. since I do know what I am talking about..
Also you may have notice I don't go around shooting my mouth of about topics that don't concern me or don't know anything about (very few BTW), even if I know what has been said is incorrect.
I am well aware of Anna's ranking during the time of the Warsaw event. However, ranking is not always a clear indicator of a person's talent as you well know. By that account, you seem to be saying that Anna had no hope of winning Warsaw or any small event she has entered this year due to her ranking. It is clear, to me anyway, that Anna's talent is clearly above the competition she faces in these events.
Not saying that at all, but perhaps you might have notice she hasn't played that well all year except for a few mths and given her dismal display at the US open, I don't know how anyone could be confident about her winning this event, based on that form.. Current rankings would give a good reflection of her current form.. mid 30's is currently about right.. but sure she is a heaps better player than that and hopefully she will climb into the 20's before the year is out and can improve into the 2003 year, becuase she has so much talent.
