At least she won a match this week, but today...

Hopefully she can have a good week in Linz going into the Masters...

watching today was just eerie

1st set in a flash
that 7-8 min bathroom break really cost her, she was slow out of blocks in set 2, MGM gained confidence, crowd got involved

still she should have taken her to a TB in set 3 or broken her at 5-4

Good luck in 2016 to my favs

Nastya
she lost 3-6 4-6
had chances to break back in 2nd set too

served pretty bad most of time with a few good bits
lost serve in 2nd set with 4 DF's then next game held with 3 Aces in a row.

too many UE's today

Good luck in 2016 to my favs

Disappointing, very much so...best draw in the tournament and she couldn't pull it off

Nastya really needs to improve her nerves in majors...a few big runs in majors and she'll be thick in the Top Ten for sure.

Good luck in 2003 Nastya...and thanks for an AWESOME year!

The Myskina report: pressure confines Russian


By Matthew Cronin
********************

FROM THE WTA HOME DEPOT CHAMPIONSHIPS –
Russian Anastasia Myskina came into the $3 million WTA Home Depot Championships as the new flavor of the fall season, partially due to her standout play in September and early October and somewhat due to her nude Lady Goodie pose on a horse for GQ.

Locally, she received more attention than any player outside of the top 10, because she works with legendary coach Robert Lansdorp, who is based in the Los Angeles. That earned Myskina a cover shot on the front of the L.A. Times sports section on Monday.

But like so many players do in their first big event under the microscope, she collapsed under the pressure, knocked out by Jelena Dokic 6-3 6-4. Dokic outmuscled Myskina from the ground and the Russian's mix of flat-out offense and cagey defensive via her high loopers never properly blended. Dokic did not have to play brilliantly.

Myskina, who came into the tournament with a career high ranking of No. 12, was devastated.

"It's the worse I've ever played in my life. I was too uptight," said Myskina, who added that she wouldn't pick up a racket again for two weeks. "I'm going to send my rackets straight to Russia and I'm going to go the opposite way."

Funny, but the Tolstoy lover did a better imitation of Anna Karenina on the train tracks that Anna Kournikova did against Anna Smashnova in the Shanghai final. Her second serve was a wreck, she couldn't keep in significant points and backed off the ball in key moments. Myskina has a terrific foundation, is a fine mover and has a good head for the game, but she doesn't have the stomach for big-time tennis just yet.

"She's always gets nervous in big matches," Dokic said. "I played enough to win, but could have played much better, She double faulted a lot and does that when she gets nervous. I played her six times this year and when it's the bigger occasions, she gets nervous.

Myskina agreed that the weight of the Staples Center fell on her shoulders.

"It's hard in your first championships," she said. "When everyone's expecting you to play well and are watching. It's even more pressure than a Grand Slam because you want to show people you're really in the best 16. You want to maybe play higher than you can."

This is what I'm talking about. She is way too uptight in majors. She needs to cut that out!
