Last year, after Madrid I guess, I replied to one of your comment regarding the possibility that Simona to get off top 100 something like "maybe it will be better for Simona in order to wake her up".
Today I say again - maybe it will be better for Sorana to get off top 50 to wake her up.
I understand what you mean, but the comparison is lacking.
Simona just seemed desinterested at the start of last year, tanking halfway through the match as if she wouldn't even care. She played bad tennis and the way she presented herself out on court wasn't her.
Sorana has been playing poorly as well, but the whole week and especially today today she was fantastic up until 6-1 5-4 and simply (as far too often in her career) brainfarted at the key point of the match and never really recovered. It was a classic choke job and something even the best coach couldn't have an influence on. Once she wasted those MPs she couldn't keep the ball in play. It's not that she has been mindlessly bashing all of a sudden because she was hitting the ball hard throughout the match, but the balls that caught the line a couple of games earlier suddenly went out.
Her game doesn't allow for such a lack of focus and that's why she is so vulnerable in the choking department.
