    Slim to none, and Slim just left...I think she'll eventually bounce back, that is, if she's willing to concentrate on her game more and her endorsements/image less.
    I see her to the 4th rd at best.

  3. What Wimbledon chances?


    Lol :)


    She hasn't been playing particularly well lately, so I doubt she'll be a serious threat.

    It's all mental....she has the game, but for some reason her results haven't been up to par lately.

    I will be happy if she makes it to the QF. Anything further is a bonus.

    Her chances are slim.

    Though, I'd love to see as much of her on TV as possible.

    She's definitely talented, but mentally she's really weak even when she's playing well so until that issue get's alleviated I would expect a whole lot from her. Sharapova I think will have a really good Wimbledon though.

    If she goes beyond 3rd round, she'll be gaining points. She'll probably make it to QFs.

    She will be lucky if her "talent" gets her to the 3rd round in one piece.

    I'd really be surprised if she makes it past the first week, although a lot depends on the draw I guess. However it's really starting to look like she may get left in the dust by some of the players younger than her (Wozniacki, Azarenka, etc...) which I would have never anticipated a year ago.

    See what happens when you join the darkside.She should have kept the Wilson's in the bag.Novak same problem.Not even if you pay me would I ditch my Wilson's.Anna first needs to learn how to play a point first,to much mindless bashing.Her talent is amazing but no tennis thought.

    She got to the AO final and won RG with yonex....

    3rd or 4th round is as far as i see her going.

    It all really depends on how Ana does with her ball toss.

    If I'm not wrong Novak never used a Wilson racquet but a LM radical with a pj.

    I think Ana was very lucky to win a Slam
    she's not much better than Jankovic
    and i don't think she's even as good as Safina.

    Clearly she's not as good as the Williams sisters and Sharapova at 80% should have enough to take care of her.

    Ana's overrated like all the Serb players.

    Got nothing against the Serbians but i do feel they're overrated Jelena Jankovic especially.

    I give Ana and Novak credit for winning Grand Slams
    because it's a massive achievement but what else have they done ?

    Ana was blown away in two Grand Slam finals
    and Djokovic was also beat in straight sets in his only other Grand Slam final.

    Novak has been known to quit because of heat or blisters etc
    and that is not the sign of a great champion. it's a sign of weakness.

    I would fancy Roddick, Murray, Nadal and Federer against Djokovic on grass
    and i would fancy both Williams sisters, Safina and Sharapova against Ana and Jelena on grass too.

    Only Jankovic and Ivanovic are overrated.

    When I saw this thread, at first I thought it was Ivanisevic. Then I realized it was Ivanovic. I think their chances are the same.

    so you have no self esteem and need to make it up for yourself by defending a brand from a major corporation like it has any influence? btw.. what racquet was she using when she won her only slam? ah.. right.. yonex...

    you are the kind of guy that makes my life so much easier...

    ps: i work in marketing area...:)

    she might play on CC and that will help with her ball toss so if she is healthy and in the right mindset she'll go as far as possible

    I saw some vids of Ana working on her ball toss with Darren Cahill. So at least she's doing something about it.

    Ana has nothing to defend from here on so anything better than her abysmal results last year is a plus. I think she draws Venus in R16 -- that's if she gets that far.

    She's got zero chance of winning. If you gave me a million to one odds on her, I wouldn't even bet a dollar on her.
