Don't panic Rita will be back on form soon, she's looking forward to the clay court season.
She's had a tough start to the season as she was injured during the winter and therefore couldn't practice. She has also changed racket brands to Babolat this year and is adjusting to that.

Well, Rita got crushed by Marion Bartoli in Acapulco, 6-3, 6-1.
I think it's time to switch racquets again.

Rita is having a tough time this year, she's struggling with confidence and she needs her fan's support more than ever. Her form will pick up soon I'm sure, she just needs a bit of luck with a tournament draw, then once she's won a few matches she'll be ok again.

It wasn't through choice she changed rackets, it was due to her serious injury, she'd been with Yonex for years so it's going to take time to adjust.

Thanks for the info, CJ1.

And don't worry, I'll continue to cheer Rita on as strongly as ever.

La Bonita Italiana has great slice, but IMO doesn't construct points well enough with it. (That's gotten Conchi much further in her career).

Well said JollyRoger, and she attacks the net way too much, I saw her vs. Lindsay at Wimby, and she wasnt learning that if she came to the net she would get passed 85% percent of the time

Thankfully Rita is through to the quarters in Casablanca thanks to two straight set victories. I believe another victory will save her from falling out of the Top 100.

Please Rita, win this!!!!!!!!!!

Come on Rita!

Though my theory is that if she doesnt fall out of top 100 this week, she will next week...
