Clijsters - not a robot
ROLAND GARROS with Dinara Safina
During the match between the Arunta Eng and Kim Clijsters I remembered an episode when at the beginning of the season in the final in Sydney, Belgian, leading 5:0 in the end lost the Chinese girl Li Na. Both then and now, Clijsters missed a thread of the game, although with such experienced tennis players like that rarely happens. All this proves once again - in tennis play are not robots, and ordinary people.
As for Eng - it lefty with a good feed. Incidentally, I recently played with her in Marbella. In the first set, Hollander was stronger, while the second was I led 5:0, but then took two Arunta game, hitting backhand strokes. In the third game again, I took - 4:1, and suddenly began to fall again Rouse every ball just with my eyes closed. And it was not even the fact that I was the worst act on the court. However, when the score was 4:4, a little Dutch tie down, she made eight unforced errors in a row and I won.
Such then happened to the Arunta and the start of the tournament in Fez against Frenchwoman Aravane Rezai, when the Dutch kept the score and lost. Well, in Madrid in the match with Masha Sharapova was something similar.
In other words, Rouse, in all these contests was close to success, but at crucial moments I could not believe in yourself. And finally, in a meeting with Kim, it seems to happen - she pulled the match out of a difficult situation.
Last year's Roland Garros finalist Samantha Stosur, unlike Kim, continues to fight for the trophy. I met Sam five times and once lost it, as the one wicket, but mostly still beat the Australian. In Stosur nasty pitch, which is almost impossible to read. With Samantha should basically play through the left side, so while she could not run in under his signature forehand. Well, if you still play through right, try to make the Australian a forehand just defended.
Vera Zvonareva seems to be once admitted that she was not entirely comfortable style of play Stosur. But Russian women tennis more variability. Maybe Vera has simply not been able to pick your preferred option of many existing ones? This also happens.
I can not but mention the Vick Azarenka. Many emphasize that the Belarusian too often withdrawn because of injuries during matches. But all this is an integral part of tennis. Do not forget the heavy schedule and constant travel from tournament to tournament. You may receive minor injuries, nedolechit it, and then "draw" more damage. From the side it seems: if a girl looks good and plays great, then it can hardly something to worry. But it is not. All the subtleties and challenges your body knows just the man himself.
For example, a wiki on the US Open was an unpleasant episode: she fell from a treadmill, hooked leg. It would seem a trifle, but it all happened in the Grand Slam, "where every little thing can affect the result.
Vick was lucky that she has a very good team, starting with the tennis coach Sam Syumika and ending with the trainer on the OPT. And they both are trying to protect her from all sorts of injuries.
