Vika will win if she dictates, plays her normal game. Schiavone's clay court skills are irrelevant if she isn't in a position to use them. Avoid getting sucked into Fran's style of game.
I don't think Vika should be aspiring to this mythical clay court tennis. She destroyed Errani in Rome with her normal hardcourt game.Step into the court, dominate the points, if it takes 2 more shots to get the job done big deal.
So put away the slicing, dicing, chipping, moonballing. Use the dropshot sparingly. Get stuck into schiavone's serves and bully her off the court.
