Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova Cheering Thread
This is a bad result, but nothing worth panicking about, I think. She has really come from far this year, she couldn't win a single match. She's had a couple of good weeks, so I'm actually quite pleased with her USO hard court season.
I think all the problems in her game are fixable, and that's why it is so frustrating. Footwork is something that you can train. She has showed she can serve well, it's just far from consistent. I don't think it will ever be a major weapon, but neither is Vika's or Kim's for example. And she doesn't need to lose much weight, but she could definitely tone up more. I just hope she has a coach that really points out these problems.
After that horrid start of the season, I think it is really going upwards, minus a few setbacks.
