Re: Paris R1: Princess Magda def. Razzano 6-4 3-6 6-3!!
A couple of posters here have commented that Magda was unusually passive in today's match. I have to say, I noticed that too. It was an unusual performance from her. She certainly attacked the net less than I can recall in any match I have seen her play. On the other hand she did make far fewer errors than she normally does and she kept the ball in play very effectively. I don't know if her play today was a tactical adjustment to playing Razzano, a player she hadn't previously beaten, a conscience change that is going on in her game right now or just the mindset she was in on the day. One can't be too critical of the approach she took today as she finished with a win, and that is the bottom line for all matches.
It will be interesting to see if she plays in the same manner against Sara. I can't really see Magda outlasting Sara in long rallies so I suspect and change in approach would be called for in this match.
