Hantuchova's moonballing

What a joke. Does she really expect to get away with such rubbish against Ana or Venus?

Re: Hantuchova's moonballing

ummm, she hit like 1, and it was off of another.

Re: Hantuchova's moonballing

I'm not watching so I don't know if she's moonballing a lot but it may only be a tactic for this match. She could change her game plan against Ana/Venus.

Re: Hantuchova's moonballing

Who cares if she uses moonball!!! She's already 23 years old and this is her chance to make the semis. If I was her, I'd do everything including fake injury time outs and coaching

Re: Hantuchova's moonballing

Dani actually moonballs a lot for a top 10 player but that is a part of her game that comes in handy here.

It's also the part of her game that has gotten her back in the top 10.
Instead of going for a crazy down the line winner when she's out of position, she's hitting deep off-pace balls with some spin.
If she can find a way to sneak in some more to net, then she's maximized her ability as a tennis player IMO.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

I completely agree. She has lovely touch and volleys. Her movement is so much better, she's more patient in rallies, her forehand is steadier, and her serve stands up better in pressure. She's really worked on everything that could make her a better tennis player and being in her first slam semifinal at 24 years old proves just that.

I like Dani's moonballing. It adds a nice dimension to her game.

Re: Hantuchova's moonballing

im by no means a hantuchova fan (ask Derek ) But its nice to see a player use variety - plan A is boring all the time.
