How refreshing is Riske?

Pretty nice to see a down to earth player looking at her coach eyes when talking to her. Fed up of all these players trying to be so cool making no eye-contact when they request their service on court

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: How refreshing is Riske?

So you are using her to criticize other players?

Except for her FH (It's kind of Kleybanova... but worse), I think she has a pretty nice game. She should do well on grass in the future if she avoids injury.

Re: How refreshing is Riske?

Am I the only one not bothered by her forehand or not-even-that-bad-i-can-think-of-lots-worse grunt?

Most of the girls just grunt/screech rather than say WHOOPPIEEEEEEEEE though....
