Re: What's wrong with..

chak has 2 main problems, the limbo she now plays tennis interms of styles, she wants to attack more but it ends in errors then when she tries to fall back on her old angles percentage tennis she struggles because shes not used to it now. 2nd she is struggling with confidence, she right now can only win sets by huge margins as she doubts herself when a match gets close.

as for nicole no comment.

Re: What's wrong with..

When was Vaidisova ever a solid Top 10 Player?

And frankly, I find both players extremely overrated.

Vaidisova was a top 10 player for over 40 weeks, with the results to back it up. Sounds pretty solid to me.

Re: What's wrong with..

I'd say that right now Vaidisova is in a much worse state than Chakvetadze

Re: What's wrong with..

Chakvetadze is ina transition. She had gone as far as her old game could take her. Into the top ten, but no chance of winning a slam. Just like the power players eventually overwhelmed Hingis, Chakvetadze wasn't going to be successful inthe long term with that game.


I have no idea what Vaidisova's propblem is. Well, yes I do. Too much c*ck socializing, not enough practice.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Agreed. She's won 5 games in her last two matches. This with a serve that should be one of the best in tennis. At a minimum, even if she were a mental midget, she ought to be losing matches in tiebreaks. It's more than injury or illness or lost confidence--she clearly doesn't care. I'd like to hear her say that the way she is playing is bothering her, that she is putting in more time on the practice court and/or the gym, committing herself to improving, or even changing coaches again. But she just goes from one disaster to the next, seemingly totally oblivious to the fact that she's wasting all that talent.

Re: What's wrong with..

Nicole's ready to become Radek's (supposed) wife (until Radek finds someone new).

Everyone in WTA should have a restraining order against him.

Re: What's wrong with..

Chakvetadze's game went downhill after she had that home invasion, which I think screwed her up psychologically. Hopefully she'll recover from that soon and be back to her normal self.

Vaidisova I think has lost interest in tennis.

I agree with these comments. I know a friend of Anna and he has said that she's still recovering from the frightening incident from two off-seasons ago. She was very happy to leave 2008 behind, but her game has not looked fresh or confident yet in the new year. I'm curious to see her against Dokic.

Here's what I think... Le Worm (a.k.a Sexyback Radek) had given her too much of a good time with his 12-inch "stick"... and now, she's so addicted to it, she purposely lose games early so that she can "jam that stick up her private sanctury" for days.

Or simply put - "I want to lay my seeds in you...."
