But I highly doubt that she can go far in both events. The conditions are so different and when was the last time she convinced in back to back weeks anyway?

I just hope she can defend as many points as possible.


She committed to Washington instead of Stanford in the end : Washington MD + Q lists

She'll probably fall to Duval in two tight sets. If by mistake she makes the second round, Bencic (or Rybarikova, why not?) will take good care of her

Sori hasn't played since the FO, and Duval is a player on the rise. I don't see Sori defending her second round points here.

Ran out of gaz after an hour. Her only chance would have been to win this in straights, otherwise I just hope she can recover from her problems in the coming weeks.

Re: 2014 Grand Slams & grass adventure (Cheering Thread)

Why putting an effort in the second to win it set if you throw the match in the third

Rest and prepare for hard courts.

NID the result, but I am still bitter over this loss. She needed badly a win here... On the bright side, she seemed injury-free.

I expected her to win this one 2-1 and lose in R2 to Bencic or Rybarikova before the start tbh.

Duval played very well though, but it's not like she was unbeatable.

As Sori would say.... if they play 100 more times she won't lose again once But no, seriously, she shouldn't be losing this kind of matches

This is an exaggeration, you know that just as I know it. She affords to make this kind of statements just because she knows that she won't play against Giorgi or Duval 100 times more. But I'm pretty sure Giorgi will kick her ass next times they will meet. And if she'll plat Duval 10 times in the next 5 years, Sorana will probably win once or twice. But making these kind of statements to the press don't cost a thing

This statement actually pretty much shows where Sorana's biggest weakness lies.

She knew that she played crap that day, she knew that she once again failed to get hold of her nerves, she was unhappy with her game, but she seems to be completely unable to react accordingly. It's as if she can't connect her poor showing with certain aspects of her game that went wrong in that particular match. Instead, she is just letting go far too often.

I don't say that she doesn't start the match with a game plan and it's actually even visible from time to time, but it's just so easy for her opponent to let her derail.

A top player registers that she is playing shit and reacts during the match to avoid further damage and maybe even come back. The will power is there - she has won quite a couple of matches already from being MPs down.
