Martina is progressing.
Martina has to learn now that most of the times when a hitting rally goes above 10, the advantage is to her opponent.
If Mauresmo is on, which she seemed to be today, Mauresmo can just hit and hit and mix up balls better than anyone on tour.
She still isnt the fastest player on tour. She can sometimes depend on her slice too much even when she is on.
To get Mauresmo to slice, Martina needs to really open up the court.
Problem is to do so against Mauresmo now you have to hit some lethal inside out forehands, which still is one Martina weakest shots.
So back to the drawing board for Martina. Work on serves, forehands, and controlling the court.
