Why is Myskina holding on to the Athens nightmare?
What was injured more, her pride or her confidence? Sounds alittle excessive to me, she has been playing long enough and has masterminded her own comebacks against other quality players. At the USO, she said she was still thinking about Athens yet she had beaten her first round opponent quite handily.
Serena came back against a red hot kim at AO 2003 from 5/1 down. It happens and could happen to anyone. She just blew a lead over not just any player but the word no.1 and top seed who until was injured was dominating the field.
This is what I am beginning to believe, it is probably not her confidence that has been hurt but her pride, she is probably reading the articles claiming she was lucky to win the FO. How then do you explain her losing to Amy frazier at wimbledon, this was before athens.
Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.
