Fan questions answered...

I'd like to know what, in your opinion, is the aspect of your game that you've improved the most during your recent climb up the rankings. - Gabriel, Argentina

Ana: It would have to be my movement. I've also improved a lot mentally. I am more relaxed.

You still won in straight sets [against Venus] even though you were behind 3-0 in the second set. How do you stay calm in such situations? - Kumar, India

Ana: The important thing is to not think about the score. If you think about the score then you will feel the pressure and not play so well.

Will you play the Olympics this year in Beijing? I'm Chinese so I really want to see you this coming summer. - Stefanie, China

Ana: Yes, I will be there in Beijing. It's one of the highlights of the year for me, and I'm really looking forward to it.

Осень опять надевается с рукавов,
Электризует волосы - ворот узок.
Мальчик мой, я надеюсь, что ты здоров
И бережёшься слишком больших нагрузок.
Мир кладёт тебе в книги душистых слов,
А в динамики - новых музык.
Город после лета стоит худым,
Зябким, как в семь утра после вечеринки.
Ничего не движется, даже дым.
Только птицы под небом плавают, как чаинки,
И прохожий смеется паром, уже седым.

What a match! I've had a few good comebacks in my career and that was one of the best. I made a terrible start, but it was more a case of Daniela playing so well than me not performing. At 60 20 it was almost embarrassing. She was playing great tennis and nothing seemed to be working for me. I think I'm a pretty good fighter, and I just hung in there and my serve helped me. I knew the longer I stayed in the match the more chance there was of her level going down. On the other hand, I was able to focus better in the second set and my form improved.

In a situation such as that, mental energy becomes just as important as physical. It was just 24 hours after my win over Venus, and I had been very excited during that match. I would have liked to have had a day to recover, to calm down and recharge, but I obviously had to play another very important match.

Last year I had some good comeback wins against Vaidisova, Jankovic and also Hantuchova. The most important thing when you are behind – and this may sound obvious – is to just stay positive and forget about the score. I didn't panic and think, "I must break here." I took it point-by-point, and it worked out well.

The support I received from spectators in the stadium during yesterday's match was the best I've ever experienced. Without their support and the energy they gave me I don't think I would have been able to come back. I also received so many text messages congratulating me on my victory, and so many messages on my website. I'd like to thank everyone for their kindness.

Today I will basically do as little as possible! I'll have a practice at lunchtime, during which time my advisor Sven Groeneveld and I will talk about my tactics for tomorrow's match. Obviously it's a final, so it's a very important match, but at the same time I've played Maria four times before so I know her game reasonably well. Practice will be quite light, because I want to save as much mental energy as I can and not concentrate on any activities too much. I'm quite an excitable person, and I'm still learning how to deal with many different situations. I didn't deal with my first Grand Slam final very well, but I'm confident I can use that experience to my advantage tomorrow.

Love,

Ana
