Re: Bastad QF: [8]Polona Hercog def. Vesna Dolonts 62 64

For once, not an awful performance from Polona.

But she hasn't improved at all in the last two years. The serve is good, but still needs far more variety. The slice is just a load of junk and she needs to be taught how to properly chop it and keep it low. The forehand is great when she looks to attack with it and play the angles, but she doesn't do it enough. Needs to take it on more. Oh, and her footwork is crap and so always flops when she tries to run around to hit a FH.

The dropshots were generally good though, and I don't think she lost a point when she moved in. But she needs to move in even more than what she did today.

I've given up on that sorry excuse for a 2 handed backhand.

I really hope Polona can get her first title here

I love to watch her play. I think she can get so much more out of her game though.
