Re: Arantxa Rus

It's not like she's creating any chances, but every time she's feeling some pressure, she fails to make the points.

Re: Arantxa Rus

The 2nd set was sooo predictable. Even a home crowd and a possibly tired opponent can't fix her incredible lack of mental strength. Aran on her best way into insignificance, probably not even top 200 in a few months.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Bit harsh Magda was never gonna be easy on grass. She's playing and serving a helluva lot better than she was.

Please God give her a winnable game at Wimbledon.

Re: Arantxa Rus

If you're getting a gazillion breakpoints and you fail to convert even one of them, you don't deserve to win.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Squandered a 0-40 and 4 bp. Arantxa in a nutshell.

Re: Arantxa Rus

No shame losing to Rybarikova on grass
But at some point she really needs to take some of the chances she gets.
I mean 0/11 BP won And Rybarikova winning 3/3 BP

Re: Arantxa Rus

Drawing Puchkova in r1. Not a bad draw for her, I'd say.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Fingers crossed. Could be Stosur again in R2.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Puchkova beat Oudin and Peer at Eastbourne. No surprise at all if Aran lost to her. So Wimbledon might be the last GS for her for a while, I suppose. She made the 3rd round here last year, but back then there were completely different prefixes. She had won only two MD matches at WTA or GS events since then and is ranked #151 now. What a sad story.

Re: Arantxa Rus

It would be so cool if she could play against Stosur in R2, really wondering what the score would be this time around

Re: Arantxa Rus

Good luck to Arantxa tomorrow. I know expectations are very low now but it would be great if she could win at least one match at Wimbledon and start to improve her form. Here's hoping.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Lost 4-6, 2-6.

She went 2-0 up in the first, lost five games in a row to make it 2-5, broke back and got to 4-5 and lost on her serve to lose the first set.
