Re: Simona Halep (România)
another day, another emberrassment.
I'm sounding like a broken record, but the attitude with which some of our girls go into their tennis matches makes me speakless. What do they expect from their careers? If I'd show such an attitude and performance, my boss would have kicked my ass faster out of the office than I can complain about.
Simona is having a schedule of a Top 30 player, playing Premier events day in day out and is unable to beat the living corpse of Schiavone who isn't able to generate any pace or length on her ground strokes and basically shanks every third ball on her backhand side. I really appreciate Simona's efforts to become more aggressive, but she needs assistance, it doesn't happen like that. Her game is garbage, nothing, she is playing the tennis of a brainless basher without having the power, nor the consistency.
And for this fact alone it would be so important for her to get a real coach. She also has no self-belief and no respect. If there is a coach, you don't want to disappoint him, but she has nothing an no one to fear, that's why she is pulling these tankjobs.
Begu - same story - no coach, no bite, although she has the injury excuse. Or look at Barthel, same problem.
They all want to win as much as possible, but should maybe start by learning how to lose first.
I'm tired of our girls already failing at these most basic things. On the other hand we see in Sorana's case that it's obviously already a problem to appreciate a good coach and coaching environment.
Sometimes, I wanna just grab and shake all of them.
