She should play this aggressively all the time. I have no idea what she usually does but she looks very good at the moment, seems like she has some potential and just hasn't figured out the exact formula that makes her play her best all the time.
I find it funny that I find her very likeable while some people on TF consider her behaviour bratty. It's not the same thing as some other players.
I didn't find Jovana Jaksic "entertaining" in this way but other people may find it similar. Maybe it's the fact that she hits so many really great shots, but Amandine's emotion is very watchable for me. Being cute is helping too.
I think I also find Amandine's emotion very genuine. Jovana's is almost manufactured to "appear" cute.
Amandine just shows how she feels.
Poor thing. Crying after the loss, still smiled and warmly and very respectfully congratulated Yvonne.
Boy Yvonne has become solid. But I liked what I saw from Amandine. Maybe she isn't such a bad hitting partner for Kiki after all, but both of them need to learn to actually win, not just demonstrate their talent.
I see a very clear difference between Amandine and Jovana. Amandine is emotional but very charming, and she is very respectful to the opponent after losing. Amandine is my kind of girl. Great serves, some great groundstrokes, good movement, very entertaining to watch. Amandine
You can see that she leaves it all out on court and nothing about her emotions is fake.
She should reign it in just a bit. Going for winners from difficult positions cost her in this match, and you can call that shot selection. She's lost a bunch of matches after winning the first set recently. Needs more consistency (who doesn't?) and discipline in her choice of shots.
