Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

It's on Court 1 so there will be a stream. Should definitely be a great match with Lisa and Cara going at it.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

black/rodianova are working every ball they can at Sam, who is having trouble putting volley's away.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Cara/Nastya played really well but Lisa/Sam were poor throughout. Lisa missed countless returns and only held serve once while Sam was perennially awful at the net. That sort of play doesn't cut the mustard at this level. Can't say I'm hugely hopeful for IW-Miami but let's hope they can improve their level.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Ugh. I figured after Stosur lost easily to Vinci that this doubles result would be dreadful.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Disappointing performance from both Raymond and Stosur today. Raymond missing too many returns and Sam's volleys are dreadful! Maybe they will find a way to with more matches together but I think Sam needs major work on her volleys and Raymond needs to settle down and find her rhythm.

My guess is that Raymond struggling with the uncertainty of what is happening after Miami and is resulting in less than relaxed, confident play.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Probably an unpopular opinion but does anyone else perhaps think Lisa-Liezel should have stayed together? I know Liezel let them down in quite a few big matches last year (although didn't she get injured during the Olympics) but I thought they had a great on-court understanding and they both have a sole focus on doubles.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

I was/am pretty ambivalent about LH, she was not a favorite of mine before they teamed up, but they were a pretty solid team for much of their partnership (rocky at the beginning and end), I think Lisa was helped alot by Tony Huber, who seemed to do a lot in the way of steady coaching for them both. Is Lisa working with a new coach these days?

Mattek-Sands/Mirza R1 in Indian Wells. Hlavackova/Hradecka also in their quarter.
