Bollocks. You don't make the Roland Garros semi-finals, beating 2 Grand Slam winners along the way, by playing brainless tennis. She's 17 in her first ever Grand Slam semi-final, her nerves are obviously gonna be having an effect on certain points.
I only hope she can keep it together for this set, it's hers to win or lose. C'MON NICOLE!!!!!
I think she comes off as mean...but not brainless. I don't think power tennis players are necessarily brainless. I think there is a lot of thought that has to go into lining up shots and timing in order to get that much pace on the ball.
I saw the end of the 1st set and the 1st half of the second and she was playing very good. Obviously she has that kind of tennis that if it starts going bad, it never stops because she plays very risky. But I was impressed by her, I must say. Now she seems to have lost all her confidence. Even if she loses, I think she must be proud!
