Re: The Live Scoring Thread vol. 6

WTF ANA?

How did she move foward anyway when that ball hit the net? I mean.. it hit the net, stay back!

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

Radwanska wins.. Ana can't make a decent volley to save her damn life.

Re: The Live Scoring Thread vol. 6

Had she won the second set, I'd be satisfied regardless of the score in the 3rd. But now I'm only less disappointed than I was after the match in Australia. The biggest problem is still there, she can't start fighting until she loses the first set easily. It was like that against Serena, in her last match against Aga, now this. She has somewhat more confidence on clay, but then she chokes.

I'm more disappointed, because of the choke... that's when you show you just can't win no matter how many chances you have.. she was not prepared to win. And that's always worse than being crushed.. you can improve the game, but if your head doesn't follow, its all for nothing.

Well, she wasted chances last time too. She couldn't break at all. It was EVEN worse. If you choke when you get a chance to break, then really... That's a whole new level of fear and choking. I understand the problem when you can't finish the set or when you waste bps when it's 5 all. But when you're a set and break down, but you're still scared and you still can't take the break point... That's something completely different. It's much worse than choking away a 3-1 lead in the 3rd.

I disagree.. I think the worst kind of choke is when you have the lead and you just need to finish off.. because that shows that no matter how close you are, you just block yourself, you are not prepared to be so close.

When you waste BPs like Ana in Australia or when you have a small lead early on and then lets it go, its more about rushing.. maybe putting too much pressure on yourself.. But when you are just 3 points away and then double faults twice and hits a putaway one step to the net into the bottom of it, its just that you shut yourself to the opportunity.. in your head that was not even supposed to be happening, you werent supposed to be in that position. That's way worse.

Re: The Live Scoring Thread vol. 6

I think her problem is not directly mental.
I believe the mind depends on the body. She has no energy to play against top players.
She only has her cruise speed, which works against low ranked players. But the top players can routine her with only a little more of energy burst. And that's physical first, mental second.

I mean, if you're strong and fit, your mind will respond to that accordingly.

Hitting 2 DFs and the easiest putaway into the bottom of the net is not physical.. after that she did better in the tie break. That 6-5 game was purely mental.

Yes, but at least you got into position to serve for the set and then you do have a lead to lose. When you have nothing to lose, but still choke when you get a chance to break. I can't make any sense of that. And I do really believe that this scoreline is better than the last one. She fought until the last point, which is positive too. Also, this wind didn't help. I know it's the same for both girls, but Ana has a toss issue even indoors, let alone when it's windy. I'm glad to see her fight at least. There's nothing worse than the match like last one, not even close to anything, predictable from the first point.
