These are the tough matches that she's gonna need to start winning to get her career going. I'm not saying it's all or nothing.... but mid20s ranked players should be even competition for someone of her skill level. I just think she needs more experience. And honestly, I'm surprised she hung around so long in Strasbourg. It was her 8th match in 7 days (I think or 7th in 6...whatever it was a lot). And most of them were 6.4 or 7.5 in 3rd set. She's got the stamina, but now she needs the consistency.

Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!! **Everyone should consider themselves warned!**
