Re: Annika Beck

Well, she won, but obiously it's not a glamorous win. But well, she's got the points and ist still in the tournament.

Re: Annika Beck

She won and that's nice.

On the other hand, this is a typical match to show off her main problem: She has to work way too hard for each win with her game, that will always limit her potential because she has to put in so much effort even in early rounds, that will always put her in a disadvantage compared to players with bigger weapons.

Probably a bit late now, but doesn't Ozaki play the exact same game Annika does.

I think Annika just needs to get some wins, I feel like her form has dropped from a few months ago (feel because most of her recent matches haven't been televised). Dushevina is a winnable match.

Re: Annika Beck

Down 3-6 *5-6 to Dushevina, serving to stay in the match..

Edit: 3 unforced errors on the forehand and a double-fault later she has lost.

Re: Annika Beck

She served for the set....

She looked a bit tired at the end and was not focused enough. Too many UEs in the last couple of minutes.

Re: Annika Beck

With Annika's style of play you can't afford to make that many UEs. Dushevina's much better serve also made the difference today.

Barthel ~ Martic ~ Muguruza ~ Garcia ~ Konjuh ~ Kasatkina
Sevastova Hampton Kerber Pervushina Potapova Rybakina Mladenovic Gasparyan

That is bound to happen if each of her matches is a big grind. It's like I said yesterday, each win is such a struggle for her these days, she's bound to run into opponents that are better rested.

Oh well, at least she won one match

Re: Annika Beck

Kerber v BYE
Q v Zakopalova
Svitolina v Nara
Beck v Ivanovic

Tough, too tough probably.

Re: Annika Beck

They will loose, sorry but Ivanovic is too strong for her.

Re: Annika Beck

She's pretty unlucky with draws recently, that is most likely another R1 loss you can't really blame her for.

Re: Annika Beck

Tough draw. At least it will probably be streamed.
