She better get a LOT of practice in.

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay season!

Loss to Puig.. Monica played great, but Sara was just grass-ophobic.. I listened to the press conference audio, she was so tender!! <3 She said she's afraid of falling down running on the grass and get injured and gave other specific explainations I'm not able to translate properly at the moment!!

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay season!

The press conference is here: http://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/...089193993.html

She's very honest but still should've played a preparation tournament.

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay season!

In the Italian press conference she added that she came to London few days before to get used to the grass and do the right preparation; she said she made specific athletic exercises for this surface but that did not work. She said also that on hard and on clay she can make long steps moving, but here on the grass it is dangerous, so she has to shorten them, but having short legs she's in late on the ball. Another thing she said is that not finding the right "supports" (I mean, with the legs) she can't push her forehand. She's aware of having no propers "weapons" for playing on the grass (power, service, etc..) but that the most problematic hindrance is the moving. Last thing I remember of the press conference is that she really doesn't know at the moment how to free herself from the fear of playing on grass, because that's not a thing you can solve doing exercises. She hopes to find a way anyway.

I'm sure my translation isn't 100% correct, I have difficultes to use technical tennis terms in Italian too!!

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay season!

I guess when you don't like a surface you try to avoid it as much as possible

I hope things go much better in doubles!! ˇˇVamos!!

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay season!

With all the injuries that have happened so far perhaps Sara is wise to be fearful!! Anyway, good win in doubles today

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay season!

Sara will play her R1 match in Palermo vs Julia Cohen today, 20.30 p.m. (Italy time)
Live on Supertennis TV, so there should be a working stream as well
Vamos!

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay season!

It's Palermo
There's still another match starting now.


Sara didn't play so well but won 6-0 6-1 anyway. It'll do.

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay season!

Maybe they play in the late afternoon cause to high temperature. Palermo in the summer has an African climate and it is almost impossible to play with 35 ° / 36 °
