Why Fransexa doesn't play well on grass?

I think that her game could be very effective on grass, with her nice slice bhs, slice serve and great net play...
But her results are very bad

Re: Why Fransexa doesn't play well on grass?

Her topspin shots are not very effective on grass, her serve isn´t very good either and she has actually quite a poor return (considering the fact that she´s a top 10 player).

She has reached Wimbledon QF. She plays well on grass.

this.

but her return of serve isn't quite poor, is very poor!
Plus on grass she has no time to prepare her shots because the ball comes too fast, so she gets on the defensive since the first ball

Re: Why Fransexa doesn't play well on grass?

She takes big swings at her shots, and therefore doesn't time them nearly as well as she does on clay. Her heavy top spin doesn't work with a grass bounce, and as such her shots become puffs mid court, ready to be punished by an opponent that hits it flatter.

I doubt she gets past the 3rd round tbh.

Re: Why Fransexa doesn't play well on grass?

I think that she should play more aggressive, coming to the net in almost every point

Her Wimbledon singles record is 11-11, though. Her Eastbourne singles record is 5-7. Her Birmingham singles record is 4-3.

Thus, her total match record on grass is 20 wins and 21 losses.

She doesn't time her shots all that well even on clay. I remember vs Babyfat she was framing like every other shot, yet they all still landed on the lines. Those new strings help her get away with it, but she doesn't have good natural timing, that's for sure.

Agree with everything otherwise, and would just like to add the issues brought by her almost full Western FH grip.

How was Razzano a "walkover" for Schiavone? She'd just reached Roland Garros 4R (beat Hantuchova), Eastbourne final (beat Dementieva, Aga Radwanska, Bartoli and lost close match to Wozniacki) and then reached the 4R of Wimbledon. Razzano was in arguably the best form of her career. Go learn something about tennis.

OK, she is 4-3 in Hertogenbosch, so her overall match record on grass is even: 25 wins and 25 losses.

I forgot that it´s actually (for some reason) s´Hertogenbosch ... so you have to search for it on the list of her tournaments under the letter "S".

Re: Why Fransexa doesn't play well on grass?

When is everyone gonna stop using matches from 2009 as an example for anything? That year is by far the most embarrassing in female tennis history. It was a twilight zone kind of year, and anything that happened during it should not be taken seriously.
