I have observed this for a while now and have to say that Alexandra definitely needs to loosen up on the big stage or the big event. I really can't blame anyone for believing that she is a total mug the way she is showing up on the big stage or in matches that the neutral observer might interest. Playing at the Indian Wells Centre Court is an overwhelming situation for someone who was playing 10k events in Egypt 3 years ago, but she needs to learn to control her emotions.
I've watched her playing Radwanska in Seoul and she played a determined even match before the injury. I've watched her making things difficult against Simona on clay a couple of times already. She has no problems to deal with Monica's junk and then I watch her playing Kerber in Linz and Kvitova in Katowice in matches that are shown live on Eurosport and that girl can't put a ball in court to save her life, looks tight as a plank and close to a nervous breakdown.
Why does she have problems to believe in herself? Look at what you have done Alexandra to get from the brink of early retirement to a place close to the Top 50! You don't have to hide yourself.
Du findest es also schlimmer, wenn hier etwas gequatscht wird als wenn im Nazithread gegen Flüchtlinge gehetzt wird? Damit setzt ihr ein klares Zeichen. Mein Vorschlag wäre: Bestimmt einen zweiten Mod für dieses Forum, dann kann sich einer um die furchtbaren Vergehen im FC-Thread kümmern und der andere um den Nazithread.
Even though this vid was made for entertaining purposes, it honestly is hard for me to watch this.
I haven't watched the match, but I expected her to lose it on her emotions, but not that badly. This is the second match of the year already from which we know that she had an emotional breakdown. She knew that it was her chance to win a match at a Mandatory Event and it looks to have tighten her up completely.
Jankovic at her dramatic best will lead, throw the lead away, spot you a massive lead in the third set, decide to come back with some blazing retrieving and backhands, almost comeback, and then hand you the win, possibly with back to back double faults or netted forehands. You have no agency in this match. You might start to wonder if you have free will. Perhaps solipsism is true after all - is it Jankovic's world and you're simply allowed to live exist in it? It's basically existential waterboarding.
