Re: Olga Govortsova Thread
Watching that match with Alisa, I can see that Olga has serious game. Very similar to Victoria A (I wonder if they had the same junior coach? Some things in their games are so similar). I detect a slight flaw in the serve, but other than that, she is technically very solid. Groundies are very nice, quite a lot of pop, and she covers court surprisingly well for a tall girl. Very nice return of serve. There must be some reason why she has not had more success yet though, so I assume that up until now she has normally been more erratic.
In her match with Fran, she had chances in the first set. A lot of breaking back and forth. There was no guarantee Fran was going to hold to finish the set, but once she did the momentum swung in her favour.
I'll be looking out for her. A pretty girl with a pretty game.
