Does The Move to the Grand Stand Court Help Wickmayer?

Just curious as to people's thoughts.

Will this ease some pressure, if they move the match there?

Re: Does The Move to the Grand Stand Court Help Wickmayer?

she already played two matches on Ashe, and I don't think she seemed like she was under match pressure when she started the match against Bondarenko...

Dealing with pressure has been her biggest asset in the past 5 matches so no.

yes....pressure during the tournament to make your first 4th rd, first qf bla bla bla doesn't ever feel the same as the pressure when you know your next win actually puts you in the running for the title....

I thought she played just fine on Ashe in her last match. I don't think it will matter much.

Re: Does The Move to the Grand Stand Court Help Wickmayer?

I don't think that was necessary. She also played good against Bondarenko on Ashe.

Good luck for the 2016 season:

• Ana Ivanovic
• Angelique Kerber
• Kiki Bertens


Caroline Wozniacki, Serena Williams, Petra Kvitova, Jelena Jankovic, Belinda Bencic, Sorana Cirstea

playing on ashe in front of no one is different from playing in ashe almost full and this match determines if you can actually play for the title...

boring game? are you serious? she constantly goes for every point... what do you prefer? A player who plays aggressive all the time and tries to make the point or someone who slices, just gets the ball back in the court, one meter before the baseline and somewhere in the middle of the court???
don't get why everyone is so hard on her... yes, she may lack variation and a b-plan, but at least she goes for the point, makes great winners... yes it can go wrong, but at least she tries...
