July competition winners Aug 6th 2015

Last month we asked you to name your favourite match of Ana's career. We selected the winners at random:

First prize (adidas item signed by Ana):
Anna Cioata, Germany
"My favourite Match is against Maria Sharapova in Cincinnati Last year. The fact that Ana won despite having to fight off 2 Match points proves us what a stronger mental Ana has. Besides, it was in the semifinals of a Masters 1000 and against Sharapova who is herself a great fighter."
