Re: Sofa-coaching: Match Review and Discussions 2011 Edition

I agree with you that one way or the other the injury is probably still bothering her. But we can't know for sure and perhaps it's just hard for us to believe that she's playing like this without injury.

What has shocked me most in the matches I have seen of her, except for the serve, is the complete and absolute lack of power. She's never been a hardhitter but the last months she can hardly get her shots past the service line. That's always gonna get her killed.

Re: Sofa-coaching: Match Review and Discussions 2011 Edition

The injury explanation is comforting because it suggests she does have a kind of a plan instead of being completly helpless and mindfucking herself.

Voskoboeva played well against Sharapova. This girl can move and use variations! Made it look so easy against Sharapova

No shame on Flavia for losing against her.

Re: Sofa-coaching: Match Review and Discussions 2011 Edition

Seriously guys, I think it's unavoidable changing something in her staff...the collaboration with Gabriel is actually in a slump, she needs new spurs if she wants prepare decently herself for London 2012 and for her last (?) complete season on singe! From the injury she in unable to close every kind of game, set or match when she is above as regards points...seriously 51 with Rogowska, lots of time up against Zahlavova Strycova, up with Brianti, vey often up against Marion in Wimby...yesterday 52 up with 3 SP...she is totally out psycologically

Houston, abbiamo un problema!

What do you think?

Re: Sofa-coaching: Match Review and Discussions 2011 Edition

I think that she knows she's on a hurry because she set herself a a limit to her carreer and she also knows to be playing crap so she's just trying to hurry things and her game lets her down

she need, i dunno what the hell she needs, probably she doesn't need anything but quitting.

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Sofa-coaching: Match Review and Discussions 2011 Edition

Perhaps she just doesn't want to turn around her tactics right in the middle of a season?

Yes, this is right, but nowadays everything goes wrong, so what has she to lose?

Re: Sofa-coaching: Match Review and Discussions 2011 Edition

her tactic was great before the injury i guess it's all mental

Re: Sofa-coaching: Match Review and Discussions 2011 Edition

I still think it's a confidence problem for her after that injury. It was just hard for her to get back on track and win consecutive matches. Playing consecutive matches in one tournament that should get her form back on groove and give her that necessary confidence to execute her game plan without feeling down and lost whenever she makes an unforced error.

Re: Sofa-coaching: Match Review and Discussions 2011 Edition

i think that the key point was her loss to bartoli, she could play her best tennis despite the pain and everything, but all the effort didn't pay

So she did her best but in the end her best is just not good enough? That's kinda sad to think about. It was a tough match (against an opponent who has a better grass record and refuses to lose) so I think it's difficult to just based the trajectory of the rest of her career just on that.

Yeah. She got depressed after that loss, instead of thinking that she was playing again at high level
