I don't think it will affect her much, would have known it was a hopeless match up going in. Molik, Jarka, Sam & Casey have all suffered double bagels in TV matches, not nice but shit happens, and hey - to put my rose coloured glasses on, she played her first GS draw without a WC

Re: Olivia Rogowska

She had well over 30 unforced errors. In a 60 60 loss that is just abysmal. Ouch.

Most of them just out of sheer panic

Re: Olivia Rogowska

I'm not disappointed about the result. I'm worried that Liv doesn't do enough to learn from top players like Errani when she plays them. Liv hits the balls as well as Sara - she should be studying her carefully to learn how to maximise her potential, but I'm afraid that with Liv's mindless blasting at the ball she doesn't learn anything

Bad luck though. I don't think this will affect her too badly.

I am not suited to Forum life.

Yeah you're right, that's the stubbornness again.

Oh I love Sam's outfit this year.

Re: Olivia Rogowska

Sad for LIV I don't think she will be affected too much by this . It is the close losses that are hard to forget

Yep, Alicia in particular did so at the Aussie open against Talaja which is about as bad as it gets for an Aussie. Hopefuly Liv moves in from it, and most importantly, learns from it.

No doubt she tried to hit Errani off the court and there is only 2-3 players in the world that can do that these days.

There's more to life than just being happy.

Yes I remember that Talaja match well, was so disappointing as Alicia had upset top 20 ranked Talaja the year before in the same round.

Yes she tried to blow Sara off the court and hit some beautiful winners but was never going to result in games on the board. Really a no win situation because when she did try and rally with her obviously Sara wins that battle. She took a few nice shots out of the air for winners which was unusual and nice to see. Her serve really let her down today too, had to catch at least 2 seconds serves and go again per game.

Yeh, you're right. There is quite a bit that Liv could learn from a match like this. She hits the ball harder than Errani, but that fact made absolutely no difference to the outcome. Yes, she hit more winners than Sara (13-7), but she was buried under an avalanche of UE's (38-8). In other words, Sara's consistency is what won her this match. So the obvious question is: What could Liv have done differently in order to be more consistent out there today? The answer is that she needed to give herself more margin for error on her groundstrokes. And yes, she is capable of making those sorts of adjustments mid-match totally on her own and without a coach's intervention. I've seen her do it before, so I know that she can do it. So why did she never give Plan B a try? Well, I think that sometimes she does have a hard time figuring out what is working for her and what isn't. In my opinion, the problem isn't that she doesn't understand the game. The problem is that she doesn't put on her thinking cap quickly enough when things go south. So is there a reason why she doesn't try to put it on more quickly? Well, some people call her stubborn, and I think that that is a pretty fair label.

Anyhow, on a brighter note, I've gotta say that I did enjoy watching her play. Even when she isn't playing her best, you can always see just how talented she is. Elise Burgin was quite complimentary in her commentary with regards to Liv, and that was also nice to hear. In my opinion, Liv looked as if she has finally recovered most of her mojo. She has obviously worked hard in order to build back up some confidence and momentum, so all we can do is to hope that the disappointing scoreline doesn't affect her too much because this match wasn't decided on ability. It was decided on strategy.

Re: Olivia Rogowska

Gonzalez is no push over, so an easy win there is good.
