Was a really great clay court match, lots of long rallies ending in winners and Laura's movement has really improved. She collapsed after she got broken in the 3rd set - there was a ball that looked so in to me and Laura but the umpire thought otherwise and then she also had a very easy putaway shot that she missed by miles It's also worth mentioning that she seemed to have cold or sth as she was coughing a few times.
I knew her movement improved. It's just that her serve has been neglected in the process.
It's a new art form showing people how little we care.
Her fitness coach seems a massive worry to me. Losing 6-1 in the third sets. I'm hoping Krajan gets someone else because he's clearly not doing a good job.
What the hell is he doing with her?!
Likewise the coach!
Some can coach how to play the perfect shots, straight out of the manual but are not able to recognise an individual's strengths and weaknesses and adapt to get the best out of them. I think it still comes down to 'is she doing the right thing', rather than how well is she doing it.
Re: Laura hits the red dirt - Clay Season Cheering Thread
Laura's Twitter account description is 'General sports fan. Play tennis occasionally.'
She probably intended it to be light hearted and showing modesty from being new to the professional scene.
Unfortunately it is becoming too like reality given how little time she is spending on court in tournaments. Maybe Laura should update it to say 'Future tennis champ'. No-one could accuse Laura of being big-headed and it would raise just as many smiles as 'Play tennis occasionally'
