Sveta gets a short ball and runs back to the baseline. She needs a coach with grass experience

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I think she is the type of player with all the tools to be a factor at every slam, every time, but I don't see her as a dominant figure like Justine, Serena, etc.

Basically. She needs to stop making silly mistakes and take her chances. She should have broken Venus at the beginning of the first set.

Harsh, but true. She needs some serious mental training. Other than that she has all the weapons.

Kuzzie's movement is suspect and she tires easily.I think if she loses weight she will be very good.I am not sure about Golovin she is too inconsistent and doesnt seem to take tennis seriously.

Sveta has the talent. I remember seeing her as a 15 year old at Wimby training with Arantxa on the practice courts, you could tell then she had something special. She was hitting the ball so hard.

She just needs that extra edge of confidence, that match savvy.

I hope she steps up.

I agree especially after the Williams sisters and Henin retire she should become the best player in the world. She can do everything with a ball but sometimes she panics especially in big matches and just starts to whack the ball. I tought she played very well today against Venus and I tought she was going to pull out a third set but Venus was just too good. She should not have any regrets about today. But she does need to mentally get stronger so she can win matches she´s supposed to.
