I still try to understand the fuss about her. She looks like a typical ballbasher with very poor shot selection. She has the tennis IQ of a chicken.

A chicken cannot reach 5 GS QFs. But she's a big headcase, it's true. Injuries have also been a big problem for her.

Well, I disgree.(Lisicki comes to my mind) That is the reason why despite her raw power she didn't get better than that. You can get get away playing brainlessly only to a point (especially when 2/3 of the field don't possess your power and have the same tennis IQ), but sooner or later you will meet someone less talented than you but who uses her brain and you'll lose. See last week match vs Errani.

Nerves. Also it was Kaia's first claycourt match since RG last year ( if we don't count Sharm at December) and first match after a month and she always needs time to adapt to the surface. She's definitely not very smart but let's be fair.

I stand by my opinion. I don't think it's nerves. The poor selection, the court positioning, playing always with the same pace, not adacting to the conditioning/characteristics of the player. These are not nerves. Nerves is like Ivanovic last week (and mind you, she's not exactly a tactician)

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol54

Lucie's serving is absolutely atrocious today. Maybe she'll save a bit of embarrassment again by going 6-0 6-0 in the next sets

I counted 7 people total in the stands watching the Safarova match.
