Indeed, down 1-3

Even Daxhelet won 2 & 1 against the same opponent few weeks ago so that's not really a nice scoreline.. But glad she won it

Re: week 6: Fed Cup, Grenoble-$25k, Tinajo, Sharm El Sheikh-$10k

After which Yanina lost 7 games in a row... And after having setpoint in the second set at 5-2* 40-30, she still managed to lose the set 5-7! what a painfull loss!

I hope Yanina can find the mental state of mind to play her best tennis again... I have the feeling the technical part and the physical part are still at the level she was 2 years ago, but the mental side has become a disaster. The 'over my dead body' mentality is what distinguished her from most others and what made her special. The burning desire to be the best and to win seems to be gone.

I agree with you. It's all mental.

Elise led 4-0 in the first set And a lot of chances missed in both anyway. Better luck next week! But not a great start of the year as i expected.

Indeed, and now that's she's coachless again, I'm really worried about the next couple of weeks/months...
