No point in asking them, I know what they will tell me, they will tell that she is a bad tennis player.
Jokes aside. You are right, that tournament was pointless, she needs to prepare for the US Open. I like her style of play and I hope she does well in the US Open.
Fingers crossed. She needs to spend some time on her serve, because it's way too inconsistent. And she also needs to stop thinking she's pete Sampras, and going for a big 2nd serve at times, because she ends up DFing. And please stop losing these close matches
I hope she manages to get to the 2nd week
I agree on what you said about Davydenko. He needs to retire. He's way past it now, and he's ruining his career by continuing to play.
I didn't watch last nights match, but i just read this.
Slava faded as the match went on, and looked really tired in the last set. There was some strange incidents, like her thinking a game was over when it was A - 40, not realising the change of ends during one tie break, and even setting up to serve to the wrong side of the court at one point, so I'm not sure where her head was at. She struggled with her serve throughout so had to work extra hard to hold. JJ played pretty well though overall, well enough to put pressure on when it counted and Slava just wasn't consistent enough, certainly not like I've seen her play before. She called for her dad/coach three times but I couldn't pick any changes in tactics, she just couldn't execute consistently enough possibly.
Sounds like she was all over the place. She should have pulled out after that heat stroke last week
