If you look closely, her amount of unforced errors from the actual baseline is remarkably low for the brand of tennis she is playing. It's actually no BBB, but still paceful enough to trouble most opponents. I mean, CSN is one of the best defenders on tour, we saw how players like Wickmayer can deal with that kind of game.

She also needs to have more confidence in herself on the bigger stage, that is above MM level. Playing like today would have been more than enough to beat or even destroy Vandeweghe or Diyas, but to me it seems as if she has to be in there positive emotionally as well to play her best. However, playing on emotions is a risky thing to do when things get tight.

No, but he has been with her last year as well, so the information about her being coachless seems to be wrong.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

That picture of the handshake after the CSN match. Dead. I still think playing well against a top 20 player should be a good confidence booster for Alex.

I am a bit more reserved when it comes to Alexandra lately. And I think she'll have problems even in the first round against the Belgian youngster. In case she wins that match and loses the next one, I will consider this as being a good run for her.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

The shocking thing here is not the 9 DFs and not the fact that she got broken at 4*-5 for the upmtenth time, but the return stats.

Only 25% of 2nd serve points won on clay against any player is quite disastrous. I watched a bit of Van Uytvanck on clay last year and she was disastrous (got destroyed by Putintseva and Meusburger if I remember correctly). Now she has moved on from that, but she is still far away from being a claycourter.

Just awful.
