Exclamation Angie's 2017 - June & July - Grass Season

Ok, I don't want to think about the clay season anymore

Let's see what Angie can do on grass this year. Practicing in Mallorca right now.

She's playing Birmingham and Wimbledon, I really hope we can see a couple of matches from her on grass

Hopefully reenergised with positive attitude, mental focus, fighting spirit, speed and movement, confidence in her tennis on grass

And don't your eyes seek out the things you want?

Re: Angie's 2017 - June & July - Grass Season

Meh...she has a chance to turn her season around here, but she has quite a lot of points to defend. Personally, I want her gone from #1 but I don't want her to fall too far.

I'd accept 3 wins before Wimbledon.

Dokic&Kerber&Serena

Stosur - Venus - Hingis - Diyas - Jankovic - Niculescu
Dulgheru - Gavrilova - Davenport - Wozniacki

Aga - Kvitova - Cibulkova - Lisicki - Bencic - Cornet - Halep - Sevastova - Mladenovic
Some level of love/fascination for Ivanovic, Giorgi, Azarenka, Sharapova, Makarova, Kuznetsova, Zvonareva

Simona needs to win so she can take #1 off Angie

Tennis GOAT.

There is a quite nice chance for her to stay at that no.1 until after Wimbledon if Halep skips grass once more and Pliskova doesn't win Birmingham+Eastbourne.

Come on, Angie! Show that you can handle the pressure and play good tennis at a slam as #1!

I'm 100% sure now that she is cursed and #1 is her curse.

Re: Angie's 2017 - June & July - Grass Season

I missed her (her inform self) so much. Please God let this grass season be good for her. No more clay thank God.

Re: Angie's 2017 - June & July - Grass Season

serious question - would Angie have liked to not be number 1 after the French?

i think its great she's still number 1 but it seems like a lot of people think she'd prefer to not have that pressure

I believe so and I agree. Being #1 puts so much pressure on her. She is never been a frontrunner. She is an underdog and always will be.

Re: Angie's 2017 - June & July - Grass Season

: offtopic : wasn't expecting Pliskova to take #1 at RG but Karo Plis and Halep got close enough

Grass
Training at Mallorca -> exo @ Halle -> Birmingham -> Wimbledon

Yes, of course. Otherwise she just could stop playing. For sure she would have prefered to win some matches, but getting rid of the #1 won't help her at all. This is in my opinion just BS from her fans. Not everything is bad as #1, like the good schedule and courts. She has finally limited her appearances in this tournament/wta stuff. Haven't seen much in the last months. The #1 just shows what great year she had last year. Nobody is expecting good results from her at the moment. A lot of peolpe expect from her to change her team/coach, but nobody knows what was/is wrong...

I am already excited for the grass season. Angie first appearance will be an expo match in Halle/Westfallen next Saturday. People still like her so she sould travel to Brimingham in a good mood. I want her back with at least her pre 2016 level.

Now we have the battle of three for the #1 ranking. This should be exciting, because I don't believe the rest of the pack can cope with it easily too. They have now time to think about it. Angie showed at the US Open that she still can win, despite knowing what is in store. Helep and Pliskova couldn't. They still have problems to reach it. Could they stay on top?

Re: Angie's 2017 - June & July - Grass Season

The Battle for #1

I substracted all points (and considered 16/17 results) that Angie, Halep and Pliscova have to defend till the US Open.
Angie ended with 4730 ranking points, Halep: 4920 (+190), Pliskova: 5410 (+680)
This means, going into the US Open as #1 Angie needs to win 160 points more than Halep and 650 points more than Pliskova during the next 3 months. This is not so much as I did expect before I calculated the points.
At the US Open they defend Angie: 2000, Halep: 430 and Pliskova: 1300.

Depending who will win Wimbledon we might have one more participian in the #1-battle. But just a few are close enough to compite over the next months.

Can Angie improve her level? Can Halep and Pliskova keep their level from the first half of the year and repeat their success from last years Montreal/Cincinetti/US Open?

Keep in mind both had the advantage not to play in Rio. Therefore they had less travel and jet lag problems in Cincinnati and could better prepare for the US Swing.
