She plays only Birmingham?
Can't she play in the first week, too?
No Eastbourne?

I'm looking forward to grass but I wished the thread wouldn't have come that early

Only Internationals in the first week, but maybe now that she made some time for a proper grass preparation she'll play one anyway, would have to cancel her Halle exhibition though.

With Eastbourne I guess she doesn't want to overplay before her potentially best slam. Could always get a WC there, too, one would assume.

Re: Angie's 2016 - June/July - Gorgeous Green Grass

That's good. Exho --> Birmingham --> Wimbledon is a good schedule who is a top player and excellent grasscourter but ALSO needing a bit of matchplay and confidence.

This thread will be dead for a little while though. Wonder if she'll req a first week international WC?

My fave season of the year. I have a feeling Angie feels so too.

So that was the first half of 2016 now? Angie hardly played matches this year since Jan.

Re: Angie's 2016 - June/July - Gorgeous Green Grass

I know this is great news after horrendous clay, but Angie is not exactly going to be high on confidence right now.

I'm a little concerned :\

At least she has a break now.

I would be satisfied with a QF at Wimbledon. I WANT more, but considering how inconsistent this year has been, a QF would be a good place to start.

Angie will be low on confidence right now but usually her grass game is still good enough to get wins and to get some confidence back before Wimbledon starts.

I feel like those 3 weeks off would be a nice time to reminisce about Angie's fantastic last 14 months.

Re: Angie's 2016 - June/July - Gorgeous Green Grass

Well, after that outdoor clay court disaster I have no expectations for grass. Who knows what's there for Angie. Hopefully she will bounce back. But losing in a R1 of a slam is never good. After last year AO R1 exit her slump became even bigger. So I don' know.

Australian Open/Stuttgart 15'/16'/Charleston/Eastbourne/Stanford/FedCup highlights anyone?

I think I watch highlights from her AO matches against Serena and Vika every 1-2 days. Not even kidding.

I watched the whole match against Serena before RG started to get into the right slam mood but you just could feel that not even she believed in her chances here in Paris.
