Re: 2013 Cheering/Farewell/Hasta La Vista Thread

Terrible the way Flavia lost this match she totally turned off at the beginning of 3rd set
Her BH is really weak at the moment, Lara insisted playing on it and it gave fruits. The only positive thing is the fighting spirit recovering second set from 03 down

Recupering? recovering.
Anyway, we should give her time to improve, let's be optimistic about her future.

I am very optimistic to be honest. She's been playing great tennis, just at random...she needs match practice and let's not forget clay isn't her best surface and in bogota it's even harder to play well given the extreme conditions

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Gaspa have you seen her Bogota matches? Can you say she's at least back at half of her good level?

Re: 2013 Cheering/Farewell/Hasta La Vista Thread

yes I've seen both (actually only the 3rd set of her match against Panova)

I think she's very irregular, she goes from moment in which she is 70%-80% to moments in which she's far lower 30...she needs practice I guess, but it's all good IMO

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

she more or less fed herself with it, she completely runned out of gas and broke down mentally, but that's easy to expect...she went *40-0 with terrific shots in the first game, Lara did nothing but Flavia got broken thanks to a couple of silly mistakes, fought hard to break back and had some chances but wasted them...on *0-2 I think she got a little frustrated and made too many mistakes and 3 or 4 DF then it was just a will to leave to court as fast as possible I guess

Losing to her punchbag still a long way to go...

Re: 2013 Cheering/Farewell/Hasta La Vista Thread

LDL has been in reasonable form lately so it's not too bad considering Fla just came back. Would be alarmed on a hard court. It's going to take a while to find form. Hopefully she doesn't lose heart in the meantime.

Re: 2013 Cheering/Farewell/Hasta La Vista Thread

sadly not that shocking because even a fit Flavia would have problems against LDL and Arrablablabla
