actually Anna didnt make a big mistake back then...Sharky said:When Anna was at Maria's age, she made a big mistake for not entering low-level tournaments (she was ALWAYS playing tier II or better). She could have won but that was too bad, she had too much ego... That was her problem. It cost her in her tennis career. Her ego has gone down when she finally entered into tier III or lower tournaments. She should have done that a long time ago.
