On the eve of the new season we take a look at how each player in the current top 20 performed in 2006, what we can expect from them in 2007 and how Ana has fared against them
1. Justine Henin-Hardenne
We conclude our video highlights series with this clip of Ana's winner's speech and trophy presentation after she won the Rogers Cup in Montreal.
We hope you have enjoyed the highlights videos – there will be many more during 2007!
The high watermark of Ana's career so far, this 6-2, 6-3 rout of former world No.1 Martina Hingis in the final of the Rogers Cup in Monreal was one of the most impressive performances by any player on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour during 2006. Ana was never even taken to deuce on her serve during the 59-minute mauling.
