Embarrassing as usual, although it takes something to make Serena look like a retriever.

At times? She doesn't deserve to be seeded in any tennis competition. She's totally worthless.

She wants it too much, you can deny it.

LOL

Caroline Garcia (114 WTA) - 3 games against Serena
Sorana Cirstea (30 WTA, seeded 26) - 2 games against Serena

There is a prize for whom take more games from Serena at this RG? In that case Sharapova has no chance to win it

No prize, just one more proof (if necessary) that Sweet Sorana is lame. The reason Serena gets to the higher stages of these tournaments (and sometimes wins them) is she gets opponents that crap in their pants only thinking they are gonna go on court against her.
Sharapova has had problems with SW for years now and probably she won't beat her ever again because of the mental handicap. The ones who can take Serena out are younger opponents who she never played with or played only once. They can really surprise her. Sloane did it. Simona almost did it two years ago in Wimbledon. And I'm sure Simona will kick her ass one of these days. Mark my words.

Serena will not get younger, so she will lose her supremacy sooner or later, but, now she is unplayable.
Sorana tried very hard to keep the step with Serena, but many times Serena responded too exactly to the best Sorana balls, like a true defender, shaking Sorana (already weak) confidence. If I am angry for something is about the easy balls she lost at the net, throwing out great opportunities to score more games. But no chance for winning today.

Sorana is bipolar.

She desperately needs rhythm to get her game going, but does everything to not let that happen. Most of the time it will hurt her opponents as well which leads to some epic crapfests, but against other hard hitters it doesn't do her well at all.

I don't see this one changing very soon. However, she reached R3, added 160 points to her ranking and might get a much better seeding at Wimbledon now. We will see.

Did you mean "literally" bipolar, as a psychiatric disorder?
How do you know that?

No, of course not literally.

I just want to express that the way her game works and the actual way she competes and plays her matches doesn't add up at all.

Of course there are a lot of bashers out there, but they mostly bash, because they are unfit, have serious flaws on one wing, have no clue about the dimensions of the court in general or are slow as hell. Sorana isn't the best mover herself, but not well below average and not that bad that she has to go for every shot.

It's also why she has so many matches where she kind of tanks the opening sets, like a training session to get some rhythm and win it in 3. It doesn't make any sense at all with which attitude she goes into her matches.

Sori

She lost the match before it began. Serena never let her sink her teeth in the match.

I only got to see the last three games, but what I saw from Serena was very good. Sori hit some excellent passing shots that Serena picked from her shoes and also made a great stab volley. Plus, her serve was ridiculous.

Still not a bad tournament for Sorana. Let's hope she gets a kind draw at Wimbledon.
