Martina's second half of the year
What do you guys think attributes to Martina's less than stellar form since Wimbledon? I was thinking about this, because I went back and watched some of Martina's match from the Aussie Open earlier this year. She played with so much confidence, and I think early on in her comeback she surprised even herself. I think maybe she was shocked at how well she was playing and became a little overconfident to the extent that players who months earlier she was beating easily (i.e. Sugiyama), she EXPECTED to win rather than actually implementing her game (i.e. she was instead overhitting, going for too much). At least I can honestly say she's improved her serve a great deal since the beginning of the year. But she needs that extra, confident spark back. Incidentally, the same spark my other fave, Dementieva, needs to rekindle also. Oh well, I hope they both can do some damage at the YEC.
