Anna gets another opportunity to determine how far and fast her improvement has come. In a second round match at Dubai, she again goes up against Venus. It has been my experience, that the more you play Venus the tougher it becomes. So I predict tough sledding (since we are in the winter olympics) for the Russian native. Anna will win a tournie (tier IV) this year. :cool:

Anna actually has the weapons to slow Venus down. She can slice off both sides, and she's fast. If she can consistently keep the ball low, and make Venus generate her own pace, Anna could make it interesting. Of course, the way Anna actually plays is nothing like that.

Go Venus all the same.

You should send a private e-mail to Anna :)

I am actually looking forward to Anna winning her 1st tournament. I just don't want her to beat Venus in the process. I'm going to be rooting for Venus all the way. I'll have to support Anna in another tournament.

actually dh, Venus technically won't be #1 until Monday, so if Anna wins, it won't count as a victory over the #1, just the #1 seed. ;)

Actually Anna has only beaten Martina when she was ranked #1 at the time..

However what dh is refering too, is that she would have beaten the past 7 players to reach #1 (not actually #1 at the time she beat them, but have been #1)

Steffi, Monica, Martina, Arantxa, Lindsay and Jennifer

I actually agree with Volcana, I saw Anna play live at the Erickson in Miami a few years ago, I thought she was amazing, if anyone told me back then that Anna would still be chasing her 1st WTA single titles a few years later, I would not believe it.

Thanks a lot A4. Cos thats all there is about me, really. There's no knowledge, so I have no idea if what I'm saying is true or not. But there's alway the enthusiasm. Its there through anything.

Enthusiasm rocks! Who needs anything else, when you have ENTHUSIASM?!

Really? When was your experience playing Venus then?

As for Anna, yes of course she could beat Venus. But she needs to keep her head together & use all the variety that she can. Will it happen? Not bloody likely.
