Re: ...HardCourt II

With so little preparation and a commitment to play aggressively this scoreline was on the cards for the first set of the season. The big question is whether she can tidy up her game enough to take the match in 3

Re: ...HardCourt II

8 points in a row loss… It should not be the case, I guess. B.

Re: ...HardCourt II

Physically She is fine. No problem with the ankle. It’s just mental and up the her to take control of the match in the second set. She is a little bit nervous time to time, but nothing definitive. B.

Re: ...HardCourt II

Phew. Scrappy hold.

Come on Sam. Please turn this around

She doesn't look like she wants to be out there at the moment.
