the big problem of Nicole, it's her footsteps and the fact that she has a large preparation and that it takes her time to have a good preparation and to be able to adjust her stroke. She must imperatively work on her footsteps if she wants to have better results on the hard one and to provide well to succeed on the grass.That's why the slow surface,in reality,advantage her.
She has all the weapons to do well on Grass.I suppose it's just a matter of time.
No man has a good enough memory to make a successful liar
I think she prefers hard courts because they don't present the problems that grass and clay do, and they don't exaggerate the spins from her opponents. Nicole prefers a straight hitting-match.
Nicole did well at the French Open not because of the clay, but because she happened to hit top form at just the right time. Clay would punish an off-form Nicole because a lot more shots come back than on any other surface, and I really don't see Nicole as the patient, grinding type.
Grass is Nicole's worst surface because she doesn't have enough experience on it yet. You have to get used to the awkward low bounces, and the inconsistency of the bounces. Nicole struggles with short, sharp balls on all surfaces because she doesn't move diagonally to cut off the angles yet. And short, sharp angles are particularly effective on grass.
But Nicole definitely has the weapons to succeed on grass, because IMO she has the best serve and best forehand on the Tour at the moment. And she's willing to go to the net, which is another big plus on grass.
It's hard court. One good result on clay proves nothing. It's only a matter of time and better mentality and she will play even better on the hard courts and of course more consistently.
Grass is certainly the worst. She lacks experience and her movement is terrible on this surface.
