Was Lindsay in full form?

I heard from someone who watched the match (Lindsay vs. Sprem) that Lindsay "doesn't look like she has much energy when she's playing" and that "she just didn't have much spring in her step"... I'm worried, was she her normal self?

the only thing she did worse than normal is serve cause she felt a lot of pressure because k-lina was attacking her second serve. other than that, her groundies were awesome and she played great.

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Her serve wasn't good and she was a bit moody . She did play well off the ground though.

Well I mean, she didn't serve horribly. 5 aces, 5 dfs, not a lot of first serves in.

Didn't look any slower to me.

look in lindsays defence, she plays like this a lot during the earlier stages of the tournaments. she puts in as little effort as is needed to get the job done so shes less tired. shes always a different player when it really matters. She wont be concerned. all she needs to concentrate on is her serve... thats the only thing thats wrong atm!

She didn't need to play any better than she did. K-Lina kept spraying shots and couldn't ever really get it together. This is a horrible match to guage Lindz's level as her shots weren't tested and was hardly ever on the run.

If she plays 5.25* % better in the next 3 rounds she will win the AO !

She played very well against Sprem yesterday. Apart from her first serve % she was very good. +11 differential between winners and unforced errors. But, she did have quite a few aces. And no, she's not serving slower than usual.

It was a very routine match for her. She didn't make any special effort to get to the ball. She appeared to know how much energy she needed to put into the match and didn't give any extra.
I think she can play much better and I expect that she will when she has to.
