The number-one player (this week, at least), Ana Ivanovic, got dumped in the second round by qualifier Julie Coin in three sets. I knew she was going to go out, but not this early!
This is what I think: Ivanovic needs to shut it down for the rest of the year. The only time you step on the court can't just be in tournament play. Then, if she keeps going like this, her confidence could eventually take a hit. Take some time off and get that thumb healed!
An old friend of mine and I used to talk tennis for hours, whether it was our own games or what was happening in the pros. I've started Tennis Talk, Anyone? to, well, talk tennis with an even broader crowd! My name is Van Sias and I've been playing for 20 years now, and not only am I player, I'm a huge fan of the game as well: pro, amateur, you name it. I'll post links to news items related to the sport, and offer my own personal opinion, predictions and hopefully get some of yours as well.
