Re: Unlucky Aravane in Paris

She lost 62 61.

Disappointing show for Aravane who was too much under pressure in this match to stay alive. She made too many double faults at the worst moments. It's really a shame because she is worth better than that. She had opportunities to hold and she didn't take them.
Nicole was obviously too hard for her especially on her serve, 0 break balls to save.

Aravane should get back to the Tier III-Tier IV tournaments to have more confidence, otherwise, she won't get out of that slump.

Allez Aravane , don't lose your faith in yourself !

Re: Unlucky Aravane in Paris

A French Article on the match

Vaidisova trop forte pour Rezaï

Si on connaît la musique « tendance hard rock » dans le jeu avec Aravane Rezaï et Nicole Vaidisova, la Française a joué sur le mode mineur en multipliant les fausses notes. Jusqu'à deux jeux partout, elle a tenu le rythme endiablé du «tu cognes, je cogne plus fort», mais cette option, payante un set à Roland-Garros l'an dernier, a fondu sous la puissance et le physique adverses. En s'appuyant sur un bon service (72% de premières balles), la Tchèque a pris le dessus pour enchaîner cinq jeux consécutifs et mener (6-2, 1-0). Puis elle a simplement récidivé lors de la deuxième manche (1-1) avec cinq jeux avalés en un quart d'heure.

« Je n'ai pas pu installer mon jeu, elle m'a prise de vitesse au service. J'ai connu beaucoup de difficultés pour retourner. C'est peut-être le manque de compétition, mais elle a très bien joué, elle est très en forme », a concédé Aravane Rezaï qui envisage de revoir son programme d'entraînement. Pour pallier son manque de match inhérent à son nouveau statut, elle souhaite désormais faire appel à des sparring-partners. L'an dernier, elle multipliait les rencontres en jouant sur le circuit ITF. Aujourd'hui, elle se retrouve d'entrée face à la 9e joueuse mondiale et son temps de jeu atteint cinquante minutes.

Et cette rapidité d'exécution n'est rien en comparaison des retours de service tentés par la jeune Française sur des premières balles à 180 km/h. « Contre n'importe quelle joueuse, j'essaie d'imposer mon jeu, d'attaquer, de prendre de vitesse mon adversaire et de l'étouffer », explique-t-elle. Résultat : Nicole Vaidisova a imposé son jeu, attaqué, pris de vitesse et étouffé son adversaire. Serait-ce l'effet boomerang d'une méthode parfois simpliste malgré des qualités exceptionnelles de frappe de balle ?

Aravane is planning to change her preparation methods, she wants to practice more with various sparring-partners to be able to adapt her game to each situation.
She had many difficulties to return Nicole's serve, hesitating between making a return winner or just putting the ball in the court.
She ackknowledged her lack of competition. She will be training hard to get her 2006 level back !

Allez Aravane !

Re: Unlucky Aravane in Paris

If you look at Stephanie's beautiful photos on Aravane's website, you will be able to notice that Aravane really lost some weight !

Good effort from her ! She only needs more training and confidence.
