She can't even defeat a top 300 player without her coaches
I don't get it, she seems to be a smart girl of court , how can she be so retarded during a match??
I honestly think her intelligence is overestimated
We shouldn't mix humanistic or scientific intelligence with intelligence for the game here.
There are dozens of soccer players out there, technically versatile in their sport, but not really smart by any means.
I would even go as far and say that people with more brains are more prone to become headcases because of overthinking than someone who is just living in the moment.
From my personal experience I can say that it's often unexplainable to say what just has happened even for the players itself. Stuff like that happens when emotion are envolved: unneccessary fouls and insults in a soccer match, melt downs in tennis and fans out there can just facepalm about so much stupidity, but in fact those are all panic actions, reactions to pressure and anger.
Pretty sure Sorana was just being mentally absent in that second set and won't check what she was doing out there before she goes to bed this evening.
This is no excuse, but a way for me to understand those mental blackouts.
Thus said, that tankjob in the second set would make Fognini proud.
