Re: Abbie Myers
Off the youtube stream it was good to see Abbie play again. She has some natural power and was able to have Dasha on the backfoot quite often.
I quite like her smooth strokes and the serve seems reliable. But I think her game is similar to Pattersons, as soon as the ball is not in the hitting position e.g. they are moved about, jammed up, low ball, against higher ranked players (or under pressure) they invariably make an error. I think Abbie needs to continue to play doubles at a higher level which may help her improvise better on the singles court.
She'll probably get a quallie w/c for Sydney or Hobart which will be ideal for her to get some further experience against a higher ranked player.
There's more to life than just being happy.
