Re: Indian Wells R1: Zuz Ondra d. [WC] Lauren Davis 62 61

Kind of a disappointing loss for Lauren IMO She's shown a lot of promise on the ITF and Junior circuit and couldn't have asked for a better draw as Zuzana was 0-7 to start the year. Hmm, a little confused by this one.

After her hideous performance so far, this comes quite out of nowhere for Zuzana.

Rest in Peace Bally!

If a slumping Zuzka Ondraskova can beat Lauren Davis 6:2, 6:1, then this young American girl must be even far more hopeless than I thought.

Maybe it's an end of this slump finally?

Well, Lauren is actually very small / petite -- she almost looks like a little girl (i.e. 13 y.o.).

I saw Lauren in person at the US Open get blasted off the court in her match. Was NOT a very good player at all.

Re: Indian Wells R1: Zuz Ondra d. [WC] Lauren Davis 62 61

I'm afraid this result rather suggests to me that Lauren Davis is not ready to compete at this level. She is only 17 and so she has some time still but I think I would hold off giving her anymore main draw WCs until at least the summertime and maybe longer. 6-2 6-1 to Zuzana on hard is not good.

But well done to Zuzana, she did extremely well last year to pull her way back into the top 100 and it will be interesting to see how she handles it up there this year. With this win Zuzana should find herself again very close to the top 80 and her alltime career high of 74 is very much within touching distance.

But it doesnīt mean that she is hopeless For example Aleksandra Krunic is very small and slim girl, definitely looking much younger then almost 18 years old girl, but she can play very impressive tennis..Lauren has a potential and even such loss to slumping TOP 100 player doesnīt mean that she is not promissing...Iīm sure she will have many such disappointing losses in her career before she will peak...but she will learn, she still need a lot of experience...Iīm not saying that she is future Grandslam winner and Nr.1 (but why not) it happens very often nowadays that a promissing girl is suddenly slumping and she is not achieving results which were expected from her, but writing that she is "more hopeless than I thought" in her case is too strong just because of one result

Completely agreed. She was given chances at this level, and is clearly after today not ready for it yet. I think it's going to take A LOT more time for her to reach that level. Getting some good match experience at the ITF circuit level is going to help her develop and her confidence a lot more than being blown out by top 100 players will.

You speak about Zuzana as a bad player, but she's a good one. No shame for Lauren, she could have simply done something more.

Re: Indian Wells R1: Zuz Ondra d. [WC] Lauren Davis 62 61

I think Davis made the wrong decision by going pro. Which isn't to say she isn't a talented player, but the reality is that she's too small for the women's game today.
