Vaidisova's Comeback

I know the secret: SHE'S MUCH MORE THINNER!

Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODyac...eature=related

She has been improving her form and her forehand is kindda different (which I think is stupid, cause her forehand was her biggest weapon in the first place )

Venus Williams Li Na Petra Kvitova

Re: Vaidisova's Comeback

Ummm, she's won like one or two matches this week against shitty opponents? Let's calm down and wait and see if she's really back in good form. At this point I think it will be a while before she can play consistently Top 20 tennis again.

Well, I would never consider Alona Bondarenko a shitty opponent... But O.K. ...

I think this is more footwork drill than a hitting session. In the first two FHs she hits, her backswing looks somewhat staggered; she moves her arm back a little, does a little final step to lock on target, and only then finishes her motion. She seems to be working on actually moving her feet after she begins her swing, something she almost never did during her amazing serial tanking run.

I agree that we should wait a while to see if she really is back, but to say that she beat two shitty opponents is just plain stupid. One is a former top 30 player and one a former top 20 - and to beat them both in straight sets is a small victory in itself considering the amount of matches.. no, the amount of GAMES shes been winning against opponents much worse than Misa and Alona. If your not a vaidisova fan, I don't really expect you to understand though

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

But before she was losing to these "shitty" players, like you said

Sharapova | Jankovic | Pavlyuchenkova

“They are definitely a good example of how local communities can overcome the ‘victim syndrome,’ take greater control over their lives and build productive futures for themselves,” Ms. Sharapova said - UN Goodwill Ambassador

Re: Vaidisova's Comeback



Yep Vaidisova's Comeback alright!

I hate being mean but I find people on this forum are "thread creating happy" The minute someone upset a player or win a match they are immediately ushered into the top ten or will have some miraculous comeback.

Re: Vaidisova's Comeback

She only just got back into a bit of form. 3rd Round isn't too shabby. The signs are encouraging.
