OK, Altair. But the question is, what is she going to do about it? This woman is good enough to make it to a QF or even an SF at a Slam and win some of the other tournaments. There are sports psychologists out there. People who can help. She needs to find a way to get past these head issues.

She plays better against better players. In other words she got a bad draw. Maybe she'll get Petrova or someone in a different 1st round and maybe she'll win.

agreed as well

She surely should consider to talk to a Sports psychologist again, my friend has told me before that she talked to a psychologist before, but it seems it didn't help obviously, i'll surely ask him more about this in my next mail to him.

He also said that Klara has a bad mentality, i really hope she will talk to a sportspsychologist once again, a good one, surely that would help her alot

Damn, Klara. I'm so dissapointed... This loss to Bychkova is so embarassing

Good luck anyway

Lucie still seems to be injured, i dont think its a good idea for Klara and Lucie to play in the dubz, for the sake of the injury of Lucie....

Came across this very well organized web site by Mike Werner (due credit !) with some USO pics of Klara and also few mov's and "stroke animations". These include Kookie's backhand and forehand.

both are expressing my feelings

Klara shouldnt krumble against lower ranked players

I saw her match against Katya, and although I was rooting for the Russian, it was sad to see Klara like that.

Whenever Klara would have the momentum, Bychkova would all of a sudden call for the trainer, or take a bathroom break. And when Klara did have the momentum, she was by far the better player.

I'm kinda a fan of her now, she has a great game, and hope she does well in the future.

thanks for the small report
well, thats the tactic you have to play against Klara - break her momentum
she is mentally too weak to not getting out of rythm after a break

she has to work on that
