I thought that to play with Sharapova would bring one good thing: we would have some photos from match and I expected some nice photos of Anne.....
but hell, I expected unexpected....
these stupid photographers can do nothing more thanis make photos only of one player
somebody should them....
now I feel much better....
anyway nice fight in first set Anne, it's not a tragedy or a shame to lose with Sharapova
I'm looking forward to next tourney, hopefully with much better draw
stay health and best of luck next time! :yeah:
even newspapers in Luxembourg? :haha:....patriotic seems to me.....drimal04 said:Even my newspaper in Luxembourg posted a picture of... Maria Sharapova instead of Anne Kremer.
By the way this Birmingham tournament is very mean considering points; Anne will receive only 13 points (9p + 4 Qp) for her first round victory.
I hope Anne will play the lower tournament next week in order to avoid the top players in early rounds and finally enter a quarterfinal or even a semifinal of a tournament.

Nice draws for Anne Kremer and Claudine Schaul! (Finally they have lucky draws at a Grand Slam )
First round: versus Abigail Spears (USA/69), a player who is in a slump actually (losing her last 4 matches) and isn't really a successful grass player- Anne Kremer can beat her for sure
Second round: versus Ai Sugiyama (JAP/25), on one hand a good grass player reaching Wimbledon quarters last year but on the other hand a player who is out of sorts in 2005 and in addition to that under pressure to defend so many points- she is beatable for Anne Kremer
Third round: Kim Clijsters (BEL/17), a very tough opponent who would probably bring Anne's Wimbledon road to an end (but Anne Kremer is leading Kim Clijsters 1:0 in the H2H 6:2 6:1 victory in 2001 )
Apart from the difficult third round Anne Kremer has a nice draw and she should be able to defend her third round from 2004.
Good luck Anne!
First round: LL (Krajicek being injured); if Claudine plays like she did in the match against Klara Koukalova, she will zoom to round 2 for sure
Second round: Nadia Petrova (RUS/8); a stubborn adversary, but Claudine could play free, without pressure
Finally a beatable opponent in first round for Claudine Schaul who has no points to defend at Wimbledon.
Good luck Claudine!
