Re: Arantxa Rus

AMG has been in terrible form herself, but I don't think Arantxa will be consistent enough to beat her.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Third match on Althea Gibson. So hopefully that means it'll be streamed.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Mariana end up winning the title in Osprey as a Q without dropping a set in the MD

Not sure it was mentioned here allready but she allready quit working with her coach Fred Hemmes jr. He started working with her from the end of 2012 until the end of February. Now a coach from the KNLTB travelled with her for the IW/Miami tournaments. Not a good sign switching coaches that quickly, I mean Muñoz and Hemmes only worked with her for a couple of months.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Taking a break's probably a good thing. It must be soul destroying getting beat every week.

The rest of her game didn't look too bad yesterday but she's never gonna win another match till she sorts her car crash of a serve out.

She needs to get a top quality coach in who'll take no shit, deconstruct her service action then work it till it hurts.

The question is does she want it bad enough to do it.

Re: Arantxa Rus

I feel bad for Aran. Hopefully she is going to play some lower tournaments now. She needs it.

Re: Arantxa Rus

I watched the whole match and what struck me is that she actually has a different service motion then for example when she played Stosur at Wimbledon.

She kind of cut it off a bit, her backswing is shorter. Also she put an incredible amount of topspin on the serve with pretty much no pace

In the rally she is not that bad actually but she lacks consistency and she barely hit any winners. She kind of run in AMG's errors.

Re: Arantxa Rus

I started following her results after she beat Stosur at Wimbledon. Watched the loss against Peng in the third round. Since then she has won 7 matches and none since August 2012

I'm sure her form will pick up at some point. She's clearly got talent but just in a very bad run.

Re: Arantxa Rus

With her losing streak currently at 13 lost matches in a row:

WTA Marrakech Main Draw

Round 1:

Arantxa Rus - Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor

In case she wins (quite unlikely), possibly facing Sorana Cirstea (seed #2) in round 2.
H2H is 1-1, but the match she won was in 2009. Torro-Flor already beat Aran this year in Bogota, winning 6-4 6-3.

Another (useless?) attempt on the highest level. Good luck anyhow.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Currently playing live... but gee

She has no control over her shots whatsoever, every shot seems like a brainless one, lots of UE's.

Everything screams insecurity.

Re: Arantxa Rus

And as soon as Torro-Flor uses some variety, she's lost.
