Re: Anna-Lena Grönefeld - Totgesagte leben länger! - vol2

I don´t understand that woman at all!

She sucks, has horrible result, bad fitness, what do normal motivated players do then?
They take a longer break, work hard on fitness and other things,maybe change coach etc.

What does Grönefeld do? takes a little break in to spend time with family and friends only, doesn´t even mention sth about training, coaches or similar and then comes back to play a WTA tournament...and you immediately notice that nothing has changed!

One tough win against sucky Wörle, an opponent she should actually beat 64 63 or whatever and after that she is obviously too tired and gets bageled by "average" Rodina, only thing which kept her alive a bit in 2nd set was her 1st serve, nothing else as everything else ist just bad (movement, return etc.)

No one can help her anymore, only herself

Re: Anna-Lena Grönefeld - Totgesagte leben länger! - vol2

I have a problem with ALG, in that I feel like she has no idea how to organise her career. You can't take a few weeks off to spend with family and friends without doing proper training (which we assume, because how can you with family and friends?) and then come right back to the tour. You need to actually train properly and prepare on the practice court...its not just about hitting a bit then feeling good enough to play, you need to train really hard, you need to simulate matches, and you need to get really match tough! I feel like she doesn't do any of that and thinks she just needs to play actual matches...but then because she is so unfit both physically and matchwise, when something goes wrong, she goes into a full blown rage and she just keeps making errors and losing games.

She needs to take another extended break to train, become a doubles player, or retire.

I had some nice time with family and friends which I really enjoyed and needed! But now 2 more tournaments to go!
She posted that on twitter yesterday.

Maybe she will play Luxembourg qualifying too.
