What is going through Amelies head when she gets bagled?

I mean she is a two time grand slam champion. and she gets more bagels than any top 5 player ever. Is she crumbling mentally when the going gets tough? Does she tank sets where she is behind? It is so annoying that she cant pull her mind together just long enough to win a game.

she thinks:

"if i lose this set 6-0 and make it look like i choked, it will make me seem ever better when i win the next slam."

Re: What is going through Amelies head when she gets bagled?

Probably what I was thinking when I played a camp counselor in "Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenaged Wasteland" when the transsexual serial killer Angela buries me up to my head in a garbage pit and runs over my head with a lawnmower, "I'm world famous and done it all in my industry, everyone makes a turkey for the dough once in a while, at least I can get paid big money for making a turkey."

Er. Not really, no. Yes, they are the most important, but she's never gonna be a real number one if she keeps losing matches like these. Being consistent and giving everything for every tournament, that's how one should play. If she didn't care about "just a Tier II" she wouldn't have showed up.

I'm all alone with my delusions

Amelie is pretty bad when she's rusty.

Re: What is going through Amelies head when she gets bagled?

I think nothing... I would ignore it if I were her..
it`s simply a result. who cares..if she keeps winning slams... bagels are so...are`nt worth mentioning..and starting a thread..

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

I don't think so! Janković in Sydney really outplayed her. Amelie gave hers best, but Janky played just great tennis. The same thing was with Sharapova bageling her twice at "US Open"... But I really dunno why is she geting so much bagels

Re: What is going through Amelies head when she gets bagled?

What goes through her head? Probably a lot less now than back before she figured out she had the ability to bounce back, and to win slams

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

Re: What is going through Amelies head when she gets bagled?

She's probably thinking: "A Bagel again? Mon Dieu! I knew I should've brought the cream cheese and lox!"



Good luck at AO, Amelie.

I understand the question and it's the type of thing I wonder about not just Amelie but the various things that go on. Don't see a response yet that seems to have the right ring to it.
