Re: 2014 Australia adventure - Go for Top 20 (Cheering Thread)
I have only seen Sorana winning three matches so far in her career sticking to pure BBB tennis despite having an off-day.
The first one was against Stephens in Dubai, the second one against Vandeweghe in Stanford and the third was against Kvitova in Toronto. It goes without saying that either opponent stuck to the same game plan, but lacked even more errors.
However, there were many times Sorana started in full BBB mode, but changed to a much more sensible and moderate game style after dropping the first set like she did this week. I'm pretty sure she could have done that this time as well, but it seems to me that it costs her so much energy and discipline that she can't be arsed to do so in the R1 of a MM in the first calendar week of the new year.
