Re: The Everlasting Eva Birnerova Thread
Poor Eva, I hope that a bit of a break will give her some time to get her confidence and motivation back - She's had a rough year, so I think taking a little bit of time to relax and re-focus will be a good thing.
Saw her in Toronto last month and you could really see that she was just not feeling confident with her game right now. Got beat quickly by Olaru in qualies, made a lot of unforced errors. In doubles she showed more flashes of her potential, but in the key points she wasn't able to produce enough, and she just looked pretty frustrated by that. Real sweet girl though, the crowd definitely warmed up to her that day
"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!
But he loves you."
