Maybe many people will not agree with me but I actually don´t care
This was very entertaining and a good quality match IMO, when you look who was playing and both players surprised me a lot, Sandra really doesn´t deserve to be called the worst TOP 100 player
or sth like that just for playing tons of 25k´s per year, because she really has a game and is watchable when she is on. But I´ve honestly never seen a more inconsistent girl, she has more ups and downs in one match then many players in whole seasson
I would like to watch her in fast surfaces because clay isn´t really suited for her, she is agressive and trying to make winners but her game is harmless on clay especially when she is falling apart like many times in this match - in the end of all three sets for example, lovely and classic choke in the first set when wasted 5-1 and 7 SP´s then she trying to make the same in the second but Arruabarrena didn´t let her (she made 3 UE´s in the last game of second set) and the same happened in third when she was literally nuts (It seems like surname Zahlavova is equal to b!tch) and was playing too brainless. I was thinking how this girl is struggling and wasting her time on 25k but then I realized that her head probably stopped her from having a better career
Arruabarrena on the other hand improved a lot since the last time I was watching her (she was just junior) and I think she can make TOP 100 soon. I´ve watch many players outside TOP 200 and I think Lara has something more
, just the way she´s hitting seems to be in a good level already, also her game isn´t hopeless, she definitely had more brain today as her more experienced opponent and the potential is there. I´m curious how her career will continue later. But hopefully she will not follow her today´s opponent when she will be making her schedule for next years
This match has everything, exciting points, long rallies, lot of winners, also of course some
shots/moments/rallies, but that´s understandable, some boring parts yeah but many exciting parts too, it has a lot of drama, bitchfest from Zahlavova in third...I liked it and was enjoying that, for me definitely the match of the tournament so far, this could be easily a 1st round of 25k (as Zahlavova likes to play there) but the level of this match was very good IMO. The worst thing was the commentator who was acting like he´s watching tennis for the first time.
