I saw some of the match....a lot of mistakes...she does not play percentage tennis at all.....all over very quickly...Ithink Beygelzimer and Golubic had just finished set 1 on the next court and they were at 52 second set, Rus seemed to be going through the motions. ???

Re: Arantxa Rus

She's the top seed at WTA Bastad qualies, and just won her Q1 match against (WC)Fanny Ostlund, 4 & 3. It was a bit laborious, but at least she won!

Re: Arantxa Rus

Do people actually know of any particular reason for Arantxa's slump? She played at a top 50 level before so it's rather unusual.

Martincova hasn't been in form yet so this scoreline is disappointing.

I guess she has some mental problems. I watched her at the 25k in Stuttgart, she was not satisfied with herself, throwing her racquet. I think she has high expectations and gets way disappointed if things are not working. So she looked not very balanced on court. Maybe she still hasn't been able to cope with her fall in the rankings last year.
What I remarked in her game she has solid groundstrokes but often cannot finish the points she should've won because of good preparation.
Getting some wins is what she needs now.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Arantxa is just slumping 24/7, 365 days a year at the moment

Well she has been getting some wins. Only to be alternated by devastating losses. I mean, 2&1 against someone outside top 250, what the heck? I agree that her tennis is not bad, but she's got troubles finishing off. If that's mentally, I think she should find a totally different coach. I believe she's working with Hugo Ekker again, right? I guess they are too familiar?

Re: Arantxa Rus

New coach for Arantxa:
http://www.nusport.nl/tennis/3852477...antxa-rus.html

What do you guys think? At this point any change is a good one, but besides that... sounds like a good one?
