Nastya's strokes

are so soft. I'm kind of shocked how they don't get eaten up...

Not true. She hits flat. She spent time with Lansdorp.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

She's not hitting particularly hard today...

In fact, I think she generally mad much more pace on her shots last year.

Hitting hard on every shots has never been her way to win every points!

She isn't as confident as last year so she can't got for her shots and I think that's a reason why she is hitting softer.

Not all of them are, but quite a few are very soft (today?). Granville is whacking the ball on some points in comparison.

Nastya is a box of tricks
all her shots are diff speeds

she suddenly lets one fly and you're left looking

and when she's in the mood, she can blast really well.

Good luck to my favs

Actually I think it's a good gameplan against Granville. the girl has no variation and likes pace

Well, those are NOT mild. I am surprised though. Some of the shots looked positively cream puff.

Indeed...watching her mid last year..she seemed to have the ability to (out of the blue against the run of play) place the ball in the either corner at the top of the court with pin point acc'. interesting if she regains that kind of play.

Myskina used to hit it hard and flat. she could use angles really well too. Now her game always looks like it's about to come apart.

I am not shocked. Maybe she was belting it at the start of the year and that iis why she was losing. Maybe she is trying something new. At this years AO against Dechy her forehand was sooooooooooo pathetic. Her backhand is her best shot. Cellophane did she try to move Granville around or was she just getting her shots into court?
