Re: AO QR2: Jamie Hampton def. ALG 6-4 6-3
While I will continue to support her, deep down I know that from now on ALG will only be a top 100-150 singles player at best. It's just such a shame to see a girl who was once 20 years old and fast approaching the top 10, become one of the best draws for her opponent at any given tournament, struggling to land a handful of first serves in the court each set and neglecting her physical conditioning entirely.
This isn't rocket-science. If you keep doing the same work, 9 times out of 10 the output will be exactly the same. She tried Dirk Dier for 3 years, she tried not training for even longer, now would she please show some initiative and at least pretend to make a few changes? I jumped for joy when she dumped Dier, but no sooner than she fired him he was right back again.
