Re: Following the Falling Comet

No need for this thread
I know this is bad what she did, but a few months ago she wouldn`t be in a position to choke a match bc she would lose it in third set 6-1 or 6-2
As i said after all this slumping months she is afraid of winning

Re: Following the Falling Comet

But that is the problem. I wish she hadn't led 4-1 in the third. She should just have held up till 4-4 and break and serve it out.

Re: Following the Falling Comet

Well..

You know.. Ana can't win a 3 set match to save her life.. so what are the odds of her beating a good player? None.. That's sad, but the truth. She is 0-4 against top tenners.. not even as a 17 year old she was like that. The problem is her mental game. She brainfarts everytime. I guess we can look at the bright side: before she was brainfarting in the third since the beginning.. now she is brainfarting after having a good lead. Go figure...

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

What I write is my opinion, and my opinion only.

Barring a Capriati-like turn of events that would end all arguments....God forbid....How can we be sure that 'the comet' is still airborne...and hasn't already hopelessly crashed to Earth??

Yes i know but baby steps remember
I`m also dissappointed but this is actually logical after everything she went through
And still i would rather have Ana choking a match than losing it 6-1 in third
She never was a choker so we must have faith
What else can we do
And i said i`ll kill her if she doesn`t hold
I think she is testing me

Because it's going to burst right through Earth and come out the other side.

Exactly. I mean, Aga is a fighter, even though she's kinda pushy, but Nadia is a choker. I don't know if Nadia has ever come back from a double break down in the third before.

Okay....I missed so badly on the coaching situation that I won't argue with any predictions now...especially positive outlooks.......You'll forgive me,though,I hope if I'm not ready to bet the ranch on this

Ana was never a choker.. she is now! She has become this idiotic choker headcase.. and that's the whole reason for her slump. Ana playing like crap can still win matches, but her head makes sure she loses them. I mean.. Radwasnka is actually stone cold.. but Petrova is not the mentally strong player Ana just made her look like she is. She should run to a sports psychologist.. what else does she need to admit she needs help with her mental game? If she was the normal player of past years, she would have won so many matches she lost.. it's stupid.

Re: Following the Falling Comet

Come on this is better than losing 6-1 in third set and completely melting down
Now she can focus for more than one set ,so it`s improvement
Seriously these are baby steps,in one of the tournament she will breakthrough again just like in Berlin
Ajde Ana,Sven can help her more than Craig with these things i think
