Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

Babos/Mladenovic def. Pliskova/Pliskova 6-3 6-7 12-10

Singles: 11 service games - 15 DFs; Doubles: 11 service games - 2 DFs, at least half of her serves unreturnable You have to know your priorities, singles is just practice

Yes, exactly.
well I wont repeat her famous words you know it's getting lame right now but well so predictable. The girl has A LOT to improve but chose to deny it and make like if everything is "simple ".

Go get a real and tough coach who will make you suffer but for your goodness , it is useless to look pretty when you are not successful on the court.

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

Well, if you watch her in doubles and mixed doubles, you can see that she doesn't need much improvement per se. Her game is fine. Her mood is not. Of course, movement is not so important in doubles, but she doesn't lose most matches because of movement, anyway, she just gifts a lot of points, mostly on serve. Just an hour or so after her atrocious singles match, she was able to be a servebot throughout most of the doubles match. This definitely looks like a mental issue and if somehow, like she says, the relationships with coaches made her this way in singles, then you can understand that she will avoid them. She was in a very good mood in the first half of last year and then it was suddenly gone. Of course, it's not very reassuring that her game is still there, because fixing your anxiety problems is probably harder than fixing your game. And having a comforting environment off-court obviously does nothing for her on court. It's getting only worse now and you can imagine the pressure she feels, given that every match matters so much at this point.

Kristina
I have no words. What will be next? Can she be a good single tennisplayer or she will be only doubles specialist? And what did happen in the middle of last year? Why did she lose here good game?

Time will tell. Right now, she's heading towards doubles specialist, but she'll probably never give up.

As to what happened to her good form, here's her version (source):

"I was a bit fed up with the coaches I could find on the tour," she said.

"I tested them. Last year, by mid-year, when I was in the top 50, when I wanted to invest in a coach, I thought, 'I want to find someone so I can be in the top 20'.

"Unfortunately I had some mishaps, or not a good match, between the coach and myself. By match, I mean a good fit."



So changing coach was a bad move. There were also some (minor, I suppose) injuries, but they might have affected her serve (nothing like that affects it now, it was perfect in doubles) and her movement. And I suppose she could not deal with the new pressure, though one of the things why I was so optimistic about her back then was that she seemed to be very strong mentally. She was actually showing the confidence she now only talks about.

There you have it, Kiki's slump 101


About yesterday: Kristina Mladenovic (battue en simple par Zarina Diyas et victorieuse en double) : «Je ne m’explique pas ma panne de service. Trente minutes après ma défaite en simple, je suis allée jouer le double, j’envoie la patate et je n’ai pas perdu mon service alors qu’on a gagné 12-10 au troisième set. Il y a des jours sans où on n’a pas d’explication [insert shrug pic here]. C’était la première fois que je disputais un match en deux jours. Hier (mardi), j’ai connu des problèmes au service car je porte des lentilles et j’étais gênée par le manque de luminosité. Aujourd’hui je ne comprends pas pourquoi, et de toute façon, il n’y a pas d’excuse à faire valoir. »

Not very reassuring if she actually doesn't even know what's the matter.

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

At least she doesn't search for lame excuses this time.

About the coaching situation, I don't know why she fired Ascione in the first place. I thought he was fine, she did good with him. On each of his on-court coachings he always managed to boost her and make her reverse bad situations.

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

Yeah, there was no excuse to be made since she served perfectly just a little bit later.

She was headed for top 20, but she needed to change coach, because you don't get to top 20 with the same coach. D'oh. Everybody knows that But there might be things she's not saying. You leave your coach and you go for some other obscure French coaches? You don't go for someone more famous? Perhaps she did and she didn't find or couldn't afford one of those? Well, either way, it had disastrous consequences, if that is really the main culprit.

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

It's hard to tell how much Kristina will be able to progress but one thing seems certain, and that is that she has some psychological issues to do with coaches which makes her difficult to work with. She's blaming the coaches or at least saying they aren't a good match for her, but it just looks like the problems are her own. She's still young and things can change, she has the potential, we'll see, but I think she needs to mature a bit and take responsibility for herself a little more.

Her problem is psychological. She always had the same speech about how much she is so different, about she needs noone to be good, she are enough mature to not have anyone to care about her.. she had to much confidence too even if she doesn't do nothing anymore.. do she fired her coach to see more and more and she took some bad people. And again and again. Now she have to re-built her and to be honest I think it will be really long she needs time again and again. She needs to come back at the beginning. I thought Roland Garros did good about her but I think in fact it was bad because it had pushed her again more and more in her speech. It is always the same with Kristina.

Well, that sounds quite contradictory because it seems she can't walk a foot without someone from her family with her, and to me this is quite a display of her being insecure. There's a huge gap between her überconfident speech and the fact that she seems to be in a constant need to be comforted on a daily basis.

I agree with this. Actually, I thought the same. And it seems I was wrong indeed
