Re: Sofa-coaching: Match Review and Discussions 2011 Edition
on the point i kind of disagree. IMO she is now fighting with another feeling which is the one given by the whole situation + the idea that she has already done a lot on her carreer and she's soon retiring: IMO she's probably no more motivated when she's facing "nobodies" and playing little tournaments. She's possibly in the moment of her carreer when the ranking isn't meaningful and probably she's willing for a great last swan song. Something like cutting big heads or making a great run in a big tournament...that's the only explanation it comes to my mind as she played a great match against a main contender at wimbly (Marion) and showed a good mental focus against a player like Pironkova who came from wimbly QF
