Did Justine Play Follow Her New Game Plan?

We all know Justine has retooled her game in order to increase her chance at Wimbledon.

I know she did lost today, but did she execute the new game plan?
If not, how far is she?

Is the new agression stance back firing in errors?
Or the hard fall had a major impact in this match?

Re: Did Justine Play Follow Her New Game Plan?

if her new game plan was to not hit winners, miss over heads, and allow her opponent to dictate, then today was a smashing success.

Re: Did Justine Play Follow Her New Game Plan?

Justine's game just doesn't work. It's like she's being more aggressive, but all it has done is add errors to her game This was a terrible match from both

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.

Not to mention, be inconsistent.

It's terrible. She doesn't utilize her variety whatsoever anymore. She barely hit any slice backhands and stopped coming to the net after the first set.

That's exactly right. It's like she took all of the variety out of her game to try to be more aggressive, and it doesn't work . Replace the variety with inconsistency

She's playing the game Kim has perfected.
It wasn't long before Kim would obviously take control.

Re: Did Justine Play Follow Her New Game Plan?

Lindsay mentioned that she doesn't use her sliced backhand like she did before she retired. That would have been very effective on grass. Makes sense.

Re: Did Justine Play Follow Her New Game Plan?

She sacrificed variety for power, which is a shame and makes her overshadowed by people who can do much better.

Might want to throw the new game plan on the scrap heap with Jelena's overly pumped-up body that didn't work.

Re: Did Justine Play Follow Her New Game Plan?

Her 'new game plan' sucks. Where was the serve/volley play of her 2006 run or the slice backhand? She really should have won today. I hope it doesn't dishearten her too much.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

I think going in, they knew they would be some tradeoff.
Sacrificing variety and feel for sustained power and aggression.

If they still believe in this, they can say it is still work in progress and we have to perfect it.
So they will give another year of stay the course.

Re: Did Justine Play Follow Her New Game Plan?

More and more it is beginnning to seem like kim came back coz she was disatisfied with her achievement, with her game 1GS was never ging to be neough. Justine on theother hand seemsto have comeback because of Kim's success.
That asie, Justine's pre retirement game was good enough to win wimbled, though she didn't. If Amelei could so could she, she needs her old game back!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.
