She is playing Q with a WC which is a bit strange I guess. Seems like a really late decision to play here. Otherwise she probably would have got a MDWC and they would make sure to schedule her MD 1st round on Sunday and a potential R2 on Monday because of Wimbledon Q which starts on Tuesday.

Guess she just wanted to train and try and play a couple of matches here. But a nice win yesterday
Glushko up next.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Aran's match is on stream at the moment, trailing 46 22*. I've been watching the last 3 games and she actually isn't playing that bad. Good serving in particular. Glushko is really solid though, hitting very little errors.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Arantxa missed an SP at *5-4 in the 2nd and needed 5 more at *6-5, but she has taken the 2nd set 75!

You wouldn't believe it, but she is actually relying on her serve in this match She hits just a few winners, but she is mainly forcing Glushko into errors, especially on the return.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Arantxa took 2nd set 7-5. Playing really good, except for being very vulnerable on 2nd serve. She needed 6 setpoints, but clinched it. Glushko hitting some UE.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Looks like Aran is losing her head
Lost some very nice rallies and now she seems frustrated. Trailing 3-0*

Edit: 3 DF's, 4-0

Re: Arantxa Rus

Aran starting to double fault like crazy now Really weird, she hit very little DF's until this set. Perhaps this is the strategic tank we were waiting for

Re: Arantxa Rus

Hmm, yeah, might be. But then why get frustrated?
It seems to me she got frustrated and lost her patience. She's trying winners on every return as well now.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Lost 46 75 16. She has got time to travel to London now and she got 2 matches on grass as preparation + 12 points.

Re: Arantxa Rus

She hasn't improved anything in like 3,4 years. She has no game plan, her forehand is going 80% diagonal, and her backhand is always going in the middle of the court. Sometimes she has to play more aggressive and to step up a little bit, but I know it's hard with no confidence. Too bad but she is wasting her time, she needs to change something.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Aran Glushko is in the form of her life, no shame.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Good luck to Aran tomorrow. I'm a bit disappointed because I'm going down to London on Sunday for a couple of months and, if I'd gone down a week earlier, I would have gone along to the qualifying. Still, I hope she can win
