Plus she needs to learn not to let her emotions hang on her sleeves so much. I am sure in the early parts of the match Monica was feeling down and out, but she never showed it. From experience I know that if you let the competition (in any aspect of life) think you are down, then you might as well just stop playing, working etc., because they are going to do their best to take advantage of your negativity.
Lindsay keeps saying how optimistic she is and how happy she is with her game after her injury.......maybe thats where she needs to start. Its been a while now. Its time to expect more than just 2 or 3 wins in a row. If she really was optimistic and felt she was good enough, she would start setting higher goals. Thats why you set them in the first place......to achieve them. Once you have done that then you should move on to higher goals and challenges.
Mentally Lindsay is not there, maybe never has, but she was able to use her big serve against opponents who felt intimidated. The players of today, no matter how young they are, are not fearful of most of the top players. In fact most of them play their best games against them. And on top of that they are fit and chase down every ball. Lindsay was never good at that, so its impossible to expect that some weight loss is going to help her. She needs a mental make-over and some physical fitness if she wishes to look and play anything better than clumsy when she takes the courts.
BEST WISHES IN 2015
