Mido from what i`ve seen in Madrid , in the first set against Bam bam there was nothing u can do , Lisicki was playing great, those drop shots were amazing stuff. Petra on the other hand lets face it , if Petra plays her game and all balls comes into the court , nobody can do nothing against her, and again Petra played well , i think it was the best match i`ve seen Petra playing in the last 2-3 months. The only time , and i think u forgot mentioning , was vs Maria in the 2`nd set. There was an error , she was supposed to crush that blonde doll but somehow she resurrect herself at behalf of Simona who was way to more defensive .
And for what type of surface is more suitable for her , well i`ve heard an interview of Simona who said that she also like hard courts now , in the past she prefer clay but now almost she can`t decide. Remember , Simona is not an agresive player on clay from the start , she`s a great adapter, and last year showed us she can win tournaments on all surfaces . Nobody said that Simona will play on clay like Errani or something like that ( thanks God for that ) , she`s far more aggresive , i just say on clay u must be smart and wait for the spot to make a winner shot, that`s all. Her movement helps her a lot to gain this advantage , why risk it with an agressive play everytime when ur opponent "helps" u with her errors ?
She`s smart. And i`m proud of her for that.
