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