Part of the reason for Poutchkova's slump?

How about 12 double faults in six service games in the first set and two already in the second

Re: Part of the reason for Poutchkova's slump?

That's a lot of double faults. She's a good player, and she's done well at some smaller tournaments, but her serve should be something thats looked into.

She's got 20 double faults now, looks to be around the end of the match.

her attitude. you can't tank matches regularly and expect to be in the top 50.

Re: Part of the reason for Poutchkova's slump?

Olga if her opponent had to serve all time
Olga would be winning these matches 6-0 6-1 all time

last few matches she's been close 1st set, then once she loses set
she goes to pieces

Good luck in 2016 to my favs

Looks like Dementieva no longer has the worst serve of the current active Russians.

The reason of her slump is the 06 06 loss vs Bartoli in Quebec Final. It's very tough to lose a final with a DB

Re: Part of the reason for Poutchkova's slump?

21 double faults is most impressive. Not as impressive as Kanepi hitting 19 in a straight sets win though.
