Evie's losses have been close, however it has to be taken into account that she has been inside the Top 100 and she is only playing at the Challenger level and is losing to players that are ranked way below her. To me it's irrelevant if she loses in 3 sets by a tiebreaker, the fact is she is unable to close out matches.
I'm just hoping that this is a temporary blip on the radar for her, as when I watched her against Venus at the FO she really put it out there.
Bros, as you say, her scheduling does not seem to be the best. I think one thing TA should address, is helping these girls work out where it would be most advantageous for them to play, taking into account their ranking and possible points earnt. I don't understand why the Oz girls don't play more lower Tier events in the hope of getting a good draw and a few easier points. I can't see the point of getting into Tier 1's and losing in first round of qualifying. I think getting thru the first round of the MD in a Tier V would be more helpful as it would give greater points and a bit of matchplay and hopefully confidence.
