By the way, in last two sets, it was really pathetic watching Shahar play, and making those many mistakes near the net.
The only positive aspect of it is the knowledge that she, as a top 20 player, has so much more she can improve. If she will, the sky is the limit for her.
I was very impressed about Azarenka's level.
I've seen Shahar play this pathetic in doubles at least 3 times (every time i watced), and yet she kicked ass in singles. I've learned that doubles just doesn't suit her, but don't think it says anything about the singles. its ok though, I got that shock seeing her play doubles for the first time
I still think her backhand and forehand was good at the end
when she stayed back she was in charge of the 1-5 comeback.. I could see in the third set why she and alona ranked so high in singles.
Net play just isn't her thing yet, but all 4 (maybe except vika) were not good at the net, and actually that what made it fun to watch for me. Shahar was the worst though, I agree.
I don't think shahar got any business going to the net in the singles matches. she is short, don't have long reach, net play just doesn't suit her so I'm not surprised she is so bad at it..
Her level dropped too after the 1st set. It is clear though that she'll be a top 10 player before Shahar.
Nah, she will be after Shahar
