Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Black-Erakovic 6-4. Robson got broken at 4-4 on deciding point. It's frustrating because they had 30-0 on Erakovic's serve once again and lost the next four points.

Laura needs to stop getting so predictable on the cross-court return on Erakovic's serve because Black's cut it off pretty much every time.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Watching match and extremely disappointed in Laura's return game. She had a 15-30 look in almost return every game in first set and missed the returns by long margins. I fear she is too inconsistent of a partner for Lisa. Lisa was solid and consistent throughout and Laura just couldn't step up and put more returns in the court. That cost them the match.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Laura's just been disappointing from the back of the court in general.

Fair point!

I think Raymond would be better served with a different partner- but it is slim pickings out there! Laura just isnt ready for this type of doubles.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

she may want to call Huber and try and salvage the year for the both of them. It was never my favorite partnership for her but they had some good success.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

^Especially at Wimbledon and since Huber is also hurting in the partner department, it would be wise.

I'd say go to Vania. Run back to Vania

Yes please. I'm not much of a Huber fan but they worked well together. However I think Huber's planning on playing with Llagostera Vives at Wimbledon.

Raymond played pretty well but I was really disappointed with Laura. She served quite well to be fair, but I thought she would have the ammunition to hit through Black-Erakovic from time to time but she kept trying to hit it at them rather than try and go DTL which she can do and she kept trying to lob which never worked. Once the rallies got going, you could kinda tell Laura was the one who hasn't played as much doubles at this level.

It was a tough draw though and let's hope for a more favourable draw next week so they can try and build up a bit of momentum. I still think they could be a force at Wimbledon but I think Lisa should look for a different partner for the US hardcourts if their form doesn't improve

She cant go to Vania because Vania's singles ranking is really low

I say Black/Raymond I know we all want it

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

^Black won't ditch Erakovic considering all the success they are having. Unless we have Erakovic/Watson and Black/Raymond. I'd love those teams Watson/Raymond wouldn't be too bad either, better than what Huber is gathering up.
