Fan questions answered...

Do you like the hardcourts in Australia? What kind of court do you prefer? - Nico

Ana: I like the new courts here because the surface is softer than Rebound Ace, so it's easier on the body. I would prefer a higher bounce, but the pace is okay.

Have you ever been surfing? - Annie

Ana: Yes, I went for the first time last year. I love it. It's very difficult though. I was able to stand up for just two seconds. This year, in Sydney, I went surfing again and I improved: I can now stand for maybe four seconds! One of my goals is to learn how to surf properly.

I'm 11 years old and almost turning 12, and when I grow up I want to be a WTA tennis player. I'm just wondering, when did you start to play seriously? - Yuki, Australia

Ana: I fell in love with the game at the age of five – that's when I got my first racquet. I was playing often from that point onwards, but it wasn't until I was 12 that we realized, my family and I, that I had a chance to become a professional, so from that point on my training became more serious.

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.

My opponent, Sorana Cirstea, played some very good tennis today. I didn't take my chances early on and she put me under pressure. I was hesitant and could easily have lost the first set. In the second set I played some better tennis, and I'm very happy that I was able to win in straight sets.

Halfway through the second set Hawk-Eye stopped working. I have had a mixed relationship with this technology. When it first arrived, in Miami two years ago, I was against it. I didn't like the added element of the unknown. During a match I want to focus only on my game; I don't want to have to think, 'Should I challenge here? If I'm wrong I might run out of challenges.' However, I soon warmed to it and became a big fan - if we can ensure more accurate line calling, I am definitely in favor of it. But after yesterday I'm again not feeling too positive towards it. It's not unreasonable to expect that the technology works properly, so when it breaks down it kind of throws your concentration. My opponent was causing me enough problems without me worrying whether the device is working properly or not.

I always have a song playing in my head during a match. It can be annoying, because I can't get it out of my head. Today the song was Wake Up Call by Maroon 5.

I'm probably one of the most superstitious players. I avoid stepping on the lines of the court because I believe it brings me luck. I used to bounce the ball only once before serving, but I somehow lost that habit last summer. Now I bounce the ball exactly four times.

Love,

Ana

Fan questions answered...

Your forehand is such a big weapon. Is there any other specific part of the game you are concentrating on like backhand slice maybe? I noticed you were slicing quite a bit against Cristea in your first round match. - Pawel, Los Angeles

Ana: I'm still young, so I can improve all areas of my game. But the one I most want to improve is my serve. I feel that with my height, it should be more of a weapon. Regarding my slice backhand, that is an important shot when it comes to defending, and I obviously want to improve it too.

You appear so much fitter and quicker this season. What did you do in the off-season that made the difference? Rueben - Dallas, Texas

Ana: Thanks! I worked very hard on my fitness. I had an intense training programme, which included quite a few workouts very early in the morning – they're not the most fun thing to do, but a necessary part of the job!

What is your favorite Grand Slam? Which one would you like to win first? - TJ

Ana: This is my favourite Grand Slam. I'm not just saying it because it's this week, but this is the one I most want to win, because I've always loved Australia
