Does Elena has less confidence??

Hallo guys,
I think Elena is a little bit less-confident.That's the big reason why she loses matches.In fact,she has a very good game,but as we saw in French Open followed by American Open,she was looking too nervous & lost the matches.
I really wanna see her kissing that cup of victory(in grand-slams).I really like her too much.
My best wishes are always with her.
Thanx...

I think Elenas confidence is growing ,and she will have less problems with nerves ,having made two GS finals and beaten many top players she knows she has the game to do it ,she just needs to stay focused and play her game.

I reckon now being a top 10 player, she feels a bit of pressure on her in winning matches.

Nope. If anything last year proved to Elena that she BELONGS in the upper echelons of the game.

She has definitely become more confident in her game and her ability to close out matches generally. Much more improvement than last year. She defeated Maria, Venus, Patty and Daniela this year already. Very good IMO.

She'll only get better.

She might indeed be more confident than ever before, and if she just keeps up her current game, I think it might even improve a little more.
But sometimes it seems like she loses her confidence during matches. I mean,take the match versus Patty, ussualy Lena is very strong and consistent in rally's, but that day she really had trouble with it, didn't she? I really do think that was her confidence fading there. Unfortunately that might be an aspect of her game which is going to be very hard to change, I guess that is just part of her nature.
If she would improve her service, which she undoubtedly will in time, I aslo see her top the rankings in the near future. And even if she doesn't improve it she might get pretty close, I think.

Thank you, Elena

she admited that she has some psychological problems- she said several times that her serve is good in practice but she can't bring it to the game.
