Re: Monique Adamczak Cheering Thread
I watched Monique play up until the rain delay today.
She was down I think 3-5 in the 1st set. She played an awesome 1st 3 points, winners off everything. Came out really quickly. Just as quickly lost it though & was down a break right up to the end of the set. Came back well though.
Her serve is fucking awesome right now. She served at least 3 aces in the 1 game at 1 stage.
The forehand's looking good & she's not overdoing it too often. She's hit some beautiful backhand winners, mainly across court.
Sirotkina is a good player, but the variety from Monique, massive topspin, slice etc. looks a little too much for Sirotkina.
Mon's been keeping really good depth on her groundies too, has come to the net a few times & not stuffed anything up there. Her backhand volley, in particular short/drop volleys off that side are looking beautiful. She really should go to net more.
She has a tendency to go for absolutely crazy groundstroke winners at times, thus producing some really shite errors when she didn't need to.
All in all, something would have to go really wrong (eg. her forms drops to the level it did in AO WC final) or Sirotkina would have to receive some awesome advice from her coach (though I don't see there's really anything she could do anyway) for Monique to lose this one. She's clearly the better player of the 2.
