re: Tennis Discussion Thread
^ I don't know what nazz thinks, but i think she can. No perminantly, but she can certainly stop it for a while if she gets some confidence. Notice she didn't really choke during her Roland Garros and Wimbledon run. If she gets confidence back, then i think we'll see less choking.
But yesterdays choke was very strange. Slava usually chokes in close matches, but at the time before the choke she was destroying Kirilenko. So i don't get that choke. Even if her level drops a bit, you would expect her to close out that set.
Ever since she lost to Lisicki after having match point, Slava has lost confidence and it's lead to more choking. If she can overcome this mental block, then your looking at a very dangerous player.
There's only Juan!!!
