Bastad R2: Sloane was hungry and ate 2 breadsticks offered by Flavia


bad match from both anyway
playing like this Flavia will lose early in the big tournaments...but at least started to slice a bit

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Flavia did well Except for a small laspe at the end, but with that score, that's alright.
She did seem to hurt herself early in the 2nd set Hope it's nothing.

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

Suppose you could argue Flavia was a bit sloppy at times and should have double bageled Sloane. Some comical club player errors and mis-hits on display from the latter

Sloane was hungry and ate Flavia's breadstick

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I expected much more from Slohane. She didn't shocked me...

Flavia played solid, but when she will meet a decent player, she will lose if she will play like this..

Poor Sloane. She could not get into the game. And Flavia was in let's-get-this-done mode, even with her two-game lapses.

Re: Bastad R2: Sloane was hungry and ate 2 breadsticks offered by Flavia

Well, yeah... Sloane was pretty bad today. But when watching a player for the first time, I think it's important to look for their intangibles and strengths (I've had to do the same with Harrison today). For Sloane, I love her athleticism. Her athleticism alone really impresses me. Her serving and groundstrokes were off today but imo with a little development, she could have a really good all-around game. Also imo, with the likes of McHale and co. (not including Believe) she looks like THE best of our upcoming Americans. I wish her lots of luck for the future.

Flavia It was VERY apparent who was more comfortable on the clay today. Flavia made it look so easy, well done.

That reminds me, what's Madison Keys been doing lately? Is she playing challengers at all?
