On watching Dinara Safina...

It was just horrendous to watch. Doublefaulting during a set point against her. I dont think she is enjoying playing at the moment. I'm not a fan of her but I just feel bad watching her play like this. No confidence, no enjoyment, no nothing.

As Navratilova said, she is a victim of her of success.

Re: On watching Dinara Safina...

Hot mess atm. Her and Sveta both overplayed on the clay IMO - like Rafa - and now both are drained and lacking motivation. I dont really have much sympathy for it tbh.

Re: On watching Dinara Safina...

Safina's confidence must be at rock bottom because she's 'c'moning' after most of her shots.

It's not a match discussion. It's more of like a thread for sentiments.

Re: On watching Dinara Safina...

I actually thought she was handling things rather well, until that pass from Barrois that clipped the net. That's when the glances to her coach began, the 'cmon'ing of Barrois' errors.. the negative stuff. She's so fragile out there.

Re: On watching Dinara Safina...

In the first round at least rogowska went for her shots and made the best of it. Barrois is doing absolutely nothing and slicing her way through safina right now. Safina is serving like shit, tactically playing like a douche(even worse then normal) and has no idea whatsoever what she has to do.

What a difference compared to dementieva-oudin... That match is at least double the quality.

All-Time-Great

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.
