Wuhan R1: Siniakova d. [13]Mladenovic 6-3 6-2 "As NID as it gets"

The commentator spent the last few minutes talking about Mlad's woes, and there was a lot to go over. 16 straight sets lost now

Re: Wuhan R1: Siniakova d. [13]Mladenovic 6-3 6-2 "As NID as it gets"

well, Kiki played at times much better than last week (not difficult ), more aggressivity (bar 2-3 games, including the last one where she did nothing ) but made too many stupid errors and her serve was not as efficient as it used to be.
Some good points from Siniakova as well but overall it was Kristina who got the keys and let her opponent won thanks to her mistakes... Losing string continues

Re: Wuhan R1: Siniakova d. [13]Mladenovic 6-3 6-2 "As NID as it gets"

Quite surprised Mladenovic won five games (I thought it will be about 3 altogether) but Siniakova is quite up and down, not dealing with her own emotions so yeah...
How many tournaments are left this season for Mlad? Beijing, some international after and Moscow/Luxembourg? Then 3 lucky girls will win their 1st round matches

For real, she should really go back to France, do something for herself cause it's boring to see her losing when in crises, much better to watch her losing after she is in good form

I honestly think its more than injuries or lack of form now. I think after her disgusting attack on Caroline....higher powers got involved to humble her and this will continue until she ask for forgiveness to caroline. This is gods work ladies and gentleman

Re: Wuhan R1: Siniakova d. [13]Mladenovic 6-3 6-2 "As NID as it gets"

I'm really bummed about this tournament's draw. I was hoping one of my faves would draw Kristina. Not that I have anything against Katerina, and well done to her. But I would have been a lot happier if either Aga or Magda drew Kristina here instead of drawing each other. Actually for that matter, it is a shame Nastja and Kate drew each other also. I like both these girls a lot too. Shame one of them has to lose here early. Why couldn't one of them have drawn Kristina instead? That would have been much better.

Ah well. I shouldn't be jealous of Katerina. She's okay. Good for her. There are still another a few more tournaments this year and maybe one of my faves will get the ultimate lucky draw in one of those.

Re: Wuhan R1: Siniakova d. [13]Mladenovic 6-3 6-2 "As NID as it gets"

As a Garcia and Muguruza fan, Kiki losing every week brings a smile to my face, but jeez this is a horrible slump she is going through.

I dont think it is injuries, because nobody is that stupid to play week in and week out. Form is obviously an issue for her but i think she has glaring holes in her game that get exploited.

Her backhand is weak, 2nd serve is weak, her movement is not good. She lacks tactics and mental strength. She had a good start to the year which put Kiki in the spotlight, and players will see more of her and know her weaknesses. They will look to exploit them when they face her.

Her confidence will have hit rock bottom in recent weeks, which magnifies her problems even more.

To me she is over-ranked. She is a 25-40 player who hit a purple patch at the start of the season than brought her towards the top 10.

Re: Wuhan R1: Siniakova d. [13]Mladenovic 6-3 6-2 "As NID as it gets"

How many losses in a row is that now?

Just as I predicted (you guys can quote me on this one) she'll go back to being her irrelevant self once RG was over.

Re: Wuhan R1: Siniakova d. [13]Mladenovic 6-3 6-2 "As NID as it gets"

seems like being seeded 13th was bad luck for Kiki..oh wait

well as the title aid, as NID as it gets , unfortunately ..
I can't see Kiki winning another match this season, this is the one of the worst slump possibly ever ..

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbińe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...
