She seems to be the one to upset these days. I dont consider beating her an upset anymore lately though... She better pick it up.

gone

She had a few bad losses and that took a lot of her confidence.

She started having serving problems and now she just can't close out a match.

If you're referring to her fitness, then you are way off.

She has some flab around and when I saw her play in Montreal, she was moving very sluggishly compared to earlier in the year, for example in Miami

Oh my god, you're kidding me right? Kirilenko is NOT out of shape. That picture doesn't tell you anything about her fitnes, especially since she's in motion AND hitting the ground with some impact. She's just mentally not there, making more tactical mistakes than usual. Her stamind might not be as good, but she is definately fit.

Her stamina has never been something to rave about, especially compared to the rest of her game. I saw her practicing @ the USO and she was definitely looking very fit. She moved as well as one can during a hitting session IMO. I'm guessing it's mental, like others have said. This is a big issue, especially considering her game takes more thinking than most of the tour's.

All the slumping players (Kirilenko, Groenefeld, Dulko, Benesova etc.) have the GAME to do better. It is just about the mental side of it.
