Changes made to tentative 2007 schedule Nov 11th 2006

Ana has changed her provisional schedule for 2007. She now plans to play in the Medibank International in Sydney, which begins on 9 January. The other alteration sees Ana again competing in the Ordina Open in 's-Hertogenbosch (beginning June 17), rather than in the Hastings Direct International Championship in Eastbourne during the same week.

The schedule is still provisional and could change again. We will of course keep you informed of any alterations.

Following the success of the October competition, today we are launching a new prize draw to win an adidas top signed by Ana.

Best ever year-end ranking Nov 6th 2006

Ana remains at No.14 in the penultimate Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles ranking list of 2006. She is guaranteed to finish the season at her highest ever year-end ranking.

Ana, who turned 19 today, gained 29 points from her quarter-final appearance in the Gaz de France Stars in Hasselt. She is just one place below her highest ever career ranking.

Her doubles ranking goes up two places to No.52, while she is confirmed as finishing 15th in the Porsche Race because the regular season is over.

The November competition to win a signed adidas shirt will be launched shortly.

Ana beaten by Krajicek Nov 3rd 2006

Ana produced an erratic display as she was beaten 6-3, 6-4 by world No.41 Michaella Krajicek in the quarter-finals of the Gaz de France Stars.

The 18-year-old never found her rhythm against the Dutchwoman. Krajicek was far more consistent than the No.3 seed and skilfully took advantage of the many unforced errors Ana made.

Ana did make a bright start. She earned three break points in the opening game as she out-rallied the 17-year-old, but Krajicek saved them all. Ana then played a very indifferent service game and was broken to 15.

Ana overcomes Kerber Nov 2nd 2006

Ana clinched a hard fought 6-3, 6-7, 6-3 victory over Germany's Angelique Kerber to reach the quarter-finals of the Gaz de France Stars.

Ana quickly took control of the match and led 3-1 and added another break before sealing the first set.

The second set went with serve until 18-year-old Kerber broke in the 11th game. As the world No.244 served for the set, Ana broke back, only to lose the tiebreak.

The world No.14 broke to lead 3-1 in the decider. Kerber broke back but Ana broke again
