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

^^ well, I won´t change my opinion!
It was just shameful today and there is no excuse for that pathetic result! That russian girl had some nice results at 10k events,really seems to be in good shape but she has to be beatable! What did AL here? 2 easy wins against more or less sucky opponents in qualifying and then one "good" win against former top player Anne Kremer, then she was obviously already too tired today....just annoying, that girl keeps talking about coming back to top 50 and the she is not even able to win such matches at a 25k tournament, not only that, she even embarrasses herself,looking at the players here who are in 2nd round, only defeats against Vögele or Domachowska would have been acceptable and such a defeat should show ALG once again that she is not on the right way and that there are too many wrong things (lack of fitness,mental weakness, wrong coach etc.) And yeah, she has to live with harsh comments and criticism as long as she continues in singles as such results can´t be satisfying for anyone..but as she isn´t willed at all to change sth , it might be better for ALG to make a cut and only move her lazy ass in doubles in future.....anyone else would change the coach after such horrible results or would retire but it seems like ALG is still totally satisfied with it all..whatever, former RG juniors champion, juniors No.1 and WTA No.14 doesn´t find enough motivation obviously to work harder in training and make some big chances..pretty sad actually!
