Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

So i've been asking how she played and nobody knows

Serious question though. Has she made any improvements on her weaknesses during off season?

Del Po improved his serve last year. Tsonga seems to have improved his BH and ROS (from what i've seen). So has Slava actually improved anything? Did you notice anything in her first match to suggets she has?

I think her confidence is still shot tbh. The Olympics match took her confidence, and she hasn't been able to get it back. Whats even worse though, is that most of her losses have made it worse. I thought that it would be put behind her, and that she can start fresh this year, but obviously not judging by this result. The thing she needs is a deep run in a tournament to get some confidence back, starting next week.

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

Slava . Not her best day for singles it seems. But at least she and Julia won in doubles.

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

Yeah, sounds like we did jinx her. I made a typo, my prediction is actually 61 not 16

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

She needs to hit form soon if she wants to reach top 20. Especially by Clay season where she has points to defend

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

Guys, i think we'll just have to accept that Slava probs won't live up to her potential. Not mentally strong enough and too inconsistent. Some of you probs thought that a while a go, but i think i'll just have to accept it now. On other forums (non tennis related) i have stuck up for her time and time again, but she isn't backing me up

Shame, because she's talented. But she just can't seem to be able to use it to it's fullest. I think she doesn't realise that she's talented, and she won't get anywhere with her mental strength. A 6 year old kid is mentally tougher than her. If this was football, she'll be the last person i would want to take a penalty in a shootout.

Some of you may think it's a kneejerk reaction, but tbh she's been crap since The Olympics. I can't name one time where's she's shown that sort of form except the first 6 games against Kirilenko. It's become painfull to watch or even follow on the scoreboard. I still have faith in her to live up to that potential, but that is very slight at best. Luckily she still has time to change that around, especially next week in Hobart where she's 3rd seed and apart of a weak field.

I still love the woman though, and i'll still support her, no matter what.

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

Don't forget it's only the first tournament of the season. She'll be better and she has no points to defend until RG. It will be okay. At least I hope so, cause I'm going to the second round of Roland Garros and I don't wanna see her crash out in the first
