One hurts Wicky's defeat but at least it obtained his better result here

Re: Nina on Grass in 2010!

Can someone please expalin if Wick is hurt or fatigued or something, I watched the Riske match and was thoroughly impressed with both wick and riske. Now, while Wick doesnt come to the net much , the power on her fhs and on serve was really impressive. Honestly she could have beaten ANYONE on that day. Against Zvonareva she had very little power on serve or off he ground. Seemed completely out of it.To be honest, Zvonerava didnt impress me that much. Sure she tried to take the ball early (she's a ball machine! ) but she wouldnt havent been able to take it early if wick was hitting it as hard as she did against Riske. And Zvon's serving not that great either. Wicks return game stunk after such great returning against Riske. Is she mental or fatigued or both. Please dont tell me she doesnt play good grass tennis. She plays just as good if not better grass tennis as Zvonareva whos game is better suited for hardcourts with a nice even bounce for her ball machine tactics.

Re: Nina on Grass in 2010!

I don't know, I didn't see the game. IMO she has kind of fell out of form after the Australian-swing. Plus she had an operation before RG.
So, I'd say she's not in the same form she was in the beginning of the season. Shall be sharper by the US hardcourt season (I hope).

Re: Nina on Grass in 2010!

yes, you are right and she didnt play so well at eastbourne, but she was pretty good at birmingham and really good against riske in the 1st round at wimbledon. She looked like she hardly tried against zvonareva. At least throw down some big serves and monster fhs!

Re: Nina on Grass in 2010!

just read that the "suspension" is still hanging over her head and that has led to a nasty attitude and inconsistent play over the last months. Maybe she looked so good against Riske is because she was really focused for one of the few times lately because she wanted revenge on this girl from Pittsburgh, PA!
