Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

I watched Morita's serving motion and noticed she throws the ball slightly back. I think she needs to adjust as she can't manage to put enough power in the serve. Sorana's technique is much better.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Still amazed when she wins comfortably with a top 100 player (Morita didn't look like one today though).

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

One of her best matches this year - probably the best after her win against Kerber in Miami.

Surprisingly consistent on serve and return (Morita only held once in the entire match).

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

I am actually optimistic about Sorana's hard court season. I expect it to be reasonably successful.

I was thinking "6-2 6-2 , what a great score!", and then I checked the match history ....

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

I would still like to see a higher 1st serve percentage from her. She appears to be returning better, though.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

It looks like she is going to avoid Stosur if she makes it to the quarterfinals. Govortsova is about to win in 2 sets.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

As for now Sorana will have to face two players with more or less the same tennis mindset than hers, but she is having the bigger game.

I would say that the level of tennis she showed against Morita should be enough to win both matches, unless her opponents are peaking all of a sudden.

Reaching SF here would more or less mean a year end Top 30 ranking for her.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Sorana easily exposing so far what Monica couldn't do to save her life - Coco's abysmal movement and ROS.

EDIT: This one derailed quite fast.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

OMG, it's like a Karlovic-Isner match with much lower percentages.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

True, they both have no ground game right now.

Another DF from Coco.
