Re: Naiktha Bains

I just watched the match. You can watch it here.

It's the first time I've seen Naiktha play since the Australian Open against Khromacheva, she's definitely improved. Her forehand is such a big weapon and her backhand is more solid than I remember.

The power that she possesses on her forehand is really incredible, in a few years time once she gets a bit stronger it's going to be huge.

She just needs to improve her consistency a bit, she was erratic at times. But she's still only 14, she's going to be a very good player.

Her results this year were a bit up and down but I think that's just due to inconsistency, she definitely has the weapons and the potential. I think it'll take a couple more years for her game to come together so we just need to be patient.

Here are some photos.

Re: Naiktha Bains

her forehand is already massive! the first set she must have been nervous, but in the second she played much better. her game was pretty entertaining to watch too, especially in the second, which is always a good thing

Re: Naiktha Bains

She has a really good game, but like you said BlueTrees its her inconsistency that's a problem at the moment.

Re: Naiktha Bains

Naiktha has received a QWC into Sydney

(3)Lucie Hradecka (CZE) vs. (WC)Abbie Myers (AUS)
Ayumi Morita (JPN) vs. (WC)Naiktha Bains (AUS)
Shahar Peer (ISR) vs. Greta Arn (HUN)
Eleni Daniilidou (GRE) vs. (8)Marina Erakovic (NZL)

A win is too much to expect but let's hope she puts up a good account of herself Very exciting that Naiktha is making her WTA debut and also playing a Top 100 player for the first time.

Re: Naiktha Bains

No problem Hope it ends up being true for Naiktha! But pretty unlikely against such a good player so early in her career.

Re: Naiktha Bains

Good experience for her, even though the court time will probably be short..
