Re: Grass (finally)

Very depressing, isn't it?

She's never going to be consistent, is she? Even on her best surface. And in her late twenties, you do start wondering how many more good runs she has in her. At this point, every second round bombing out of a slam really hurts.

To be a bit more optimistic, she was helped to her career best ranking by reaching the semis of Roland Garros last year. So her total lack of consistency includes randomly winning when nobody expects it. Here's hoping, lol.

Re: Grass (finally)

Couldn't watch but looking at the stats, Lucic played a great match with 33-11. What can you do against that? I had a bad feeling about this one when I saw her final set stats againt Panova. Grass is the one surface her games works very well on. She barely lost to eventual QF Cibulkova last year.

As for Marion, well the second serve in this loss and her French Open loss has just been beyond Double digits in double faults both times. Don't really understand it given how well she served in Eastbourne but whatever.

2nd, 3rd, 2nd, 2nd round are her current slams stats. Really needs to do something big at the US. At least she shouldn't show up exhausted there like she has the last two years.

Thankfully I'm not as emotionally invested in tennis as I used to be

Schnyder Jankovic Petrova Kvitova Schiavone

If you look back at her career from 2004 you see that actually this is not an unusual thing. Every year she plays like 26 tournaments and loses early at 20 of them. It is just that she has had some good weeks here and there that have allowed her to stay in the top 20. This gives the illusion of someone who is consistant but actually her results are consistant only in that she loses early at most tournaments.
