Australian Open R1:(Q)Alberta Brianti ITA def Yanina Wickmayer BEL 64 62

Well no thread yet
Now I´m so sad and dissapoinment with her start,she leads *20,but only Yanina she can win 2 of 8 games in 1st set.
In second she wasted 12Bps in three consecutives times,and lost 62

Please regroup soon,it´s pathetic
GL to Brianti against Ivanovic

I hope she can turn this around quickly now!!
I'm dissapointed with this loss, adapting her game is one thing, but she should win these kind of matches. She should have won against Poutchek too last week!

Thanks I didn't know any of this. The last time I actually saw her play was in birmingham, and I was so impressed. I thought she would be top 30 by now. I hope she can get her game together and cut out these bad loses soon

Great job for Alberta to win her first GS MD watch. Ivanovic will be too tough, but still a great job.

Yes, I was thinking, perhaps the only lap in the coaching was that they should have told her to just play her game and that on official level the primary goal is to win her matches for now. Untill she feels comforted enough to try to apply the "many" (Yanina told) new things she learned. Something like: "We have time enough, we'll practice it in training first and you can bring it into practice on official courts about 3 months too."
After 1,5 weeks is simply too soon.
Your results shouldn't (substantially) suffer from changing your game and learning new stuff. Ideally, she should have taken advantage of her kind draw (R1, at least) and gain some psychological experience on central court with the chance of taking 1 set off Ana (if she would have won from Alberta). Furthermore, take the 60 points, and money and run! (Woody Allen)

Yanina What an abysmal '09 so far.

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you
