Olga Govortsova-how does she play?

I guess I should have posted this earlier, but I'd like to know more about this Govortsova, who just got bageled by Dementieva on clay. Now Dementieva has been playing well recently, but the fact that Govortsova couldn't hold serve or break serve in the first set doesn't impress me too much. After set 1, Govortsova has won only 8 points to Dementieva's 25 points! Does Govortsova just suck, or is this a bad day for her?

Re: Olga Govortsova-how does she play?

It's probably a bad day for her not to even win a game, but I'm not surprised Dementieva is winning. Govortsova is tall and hits the ball hard, but she doesn't move well and doesn't have much variety. Plus she has a bad attitude. She's got talent but she hasn't been as good this year as she was the second half of last year.

She has no big arms, she's consistant. Got DBed by Kleybanova a few weeks ago. Will always struggle against hard hitters.

Her stroke production is pretty similar that that of Azarenka.

She has a crap serve and has sub-par movement.

Re: Olga Govortsova-how does she play?

she hits hard and deep but not consistent enough. her serve is no weapon at all.
she's a slower version of dementieva with less variety.

She's not even hitting the ball that hard.

Is she trying to be consistent?

Re: Olga Govortsova-how does she play?

hard hitter but poor serve and bad movement.
