I don't think you can call this summer crap. She had a great week in Stanford and put up a good fight against Stosur. But this loss to Cetkovska is incredibly disappointing, seems like she's taken several steps back.
I'm not even going to bother going into her result thread in GM.
Yeah it's been a good summer, just not the last two tournaments. I'm not surprised she lost to Cetkovska who is actually higher ranked, but only winning 4 games is a concern. I hope she can regroup fast for the US Open, she needs to win at least one match there to stay strong in the top 50.
I'm also not going to bother reading the thread in GM.
I would be so disappointed if she lost this one, I've noticed that quite a few posters who give Ayumi grief in GM list Robson in their signatures, so this would be a sweet victory. I'm so nervous though.
This is so frustrating, Ayumi is obviously the better player and hitting impressive winners, she's just getting super unlucky with some errors and a bad netcord on a crucial point.
I have a super bad feeling she's gonna lose this match.
Real real disappointing, she had an amazing draw here. Again, I'm going to try and avoid the result thread in GM.
What a shit day for me. Both Ayumi and Misaki retire injured from their matches.
Ayumi's attitude this match was awful. She threw her racquet so much, I can't remember her behaving like this. I guess the pressure completely got to her. This loss really hurts, I don't know what is more disappointing, this summer season in general after having a great start, this great draw she had here and could have taken advantage of or the fact she retired quite suddenly. Anyway, Ayumi will be playing some of the Asian Hard Court events. I hope she has overcome any possible issues by then and can't start winning.
By the way, was that me you were quoting in the GM thread? I genuinely felt Morita was the more stronger player in the match, although I was only watching bits and pieces as my focus was divided between that and Misaki's livescore so my view might not have been accurate. And also I'm obviously incredibly biased. Sorry if I mislead you.
yes it was but its okay because we all still support her as always
i didn't want to quote you because it wouldn't have been nice to throw you under the bus like that but i think we are all just really upset at this terrible result for us
