Re: Flavias problems

She doesnt seem in form lately. She needs a bit of a break I think. Plus her style of game is getting just over powered now by big hitters.

She hasn't played Venus in a match that really matters.

Maybe it's the Italian top 10 curse.

Re: Flavias problems

Flavia has always struggled with consistency. Her goal this year has to be to solidify her position in the top 20 and then make a climb towards the top 10. As much as I like her she has to make some big improvements to achieve that goal.

Re: Flavias problems

I Just hope she decides to play before she has to defend all those points later in the year.

I know

She doesn't usually start the year well, but normally her game picks up in South America. This year that trip was quite bad

No idea what's going on with her though. It doesn't seem like anything is wrong with her. Maybe that foot injury is bothering her a little (a little setback in movement makes a huge change in her game) but it really didn't seem so serious, so I doubt it.
She probably just has problems to find her game, and to adjust to her new situation (it's quite different for her now than early in 2008). I still firmly believe she'll come up with a good tournament or 2 at some time we don't expect it anymore.

What would you say if we could make
something amazing
