double faults - 8

I serve better on my days off

ue - 46 in 16 games she played, i.e. on average she made almost 3ue in each game or let Nastya to win 71% of all points by basically giving them away

5 winners o'k, I agree it's tough to hit winners on dirt, but 5 in the whole match

I understand that she lost to a higher ranked player, who is currently better... but not all losses are equal. I think this one was BAD!

when will Dinara start playing again at her potential? (given that she wasn't overrated to begin with)
1. The Roland Garros site includes all forced errors as unforced errors, which is why the count is so high, for all matches.

2. According to reports, Nastya played very well and got back a lot of balls as well as mixing up the pace often, which would obviously induce errors from Dinara.

3. Dinara is very talented and her time will come.

Dinara is finished.

She should retire now.
