She was being outplayed and had no idea what to do to break Amelie's momentum. I remember the look on her face and the way she looked at Carlos. She was just helpless and confused. And I'm sure not because of injury.

Radwanska could neva

Carlos He;s so freaky. I remember during Na's Sydney match against Aga he was giving death glares basically every time they showed his face. It's a shame because I really like Na I'm actually surprised Na's handling the situation well; I thought Carlos would drive her insane.

After hearing some of Na's interviews, I actually think Na doesn't like Carlos and she doesn't care that much about him

Henin was a queen of fake MTO, her screams of "Allez!!!1111", being constantly coached during matches & getting away with it, the hand...and so on. Anyone that can rob someone of their GS glory as she did to Amelie at AO... That summed her character to a tee.
I liked Henin, mainly because of her game. But some of those moments were disappointing. Not to mention her retirement #1 and #2.

Na interviews are the best.

I remember after her match against Wozniacki in Melbourne and she was asked what pulled her through and she said: "prize money."

It was NID that when Kim announced her comeback she would comeback too Thankfully Kim 2.0 was good enough to be undefeated vs Henin 2.0.

Hingis 2.0 was awful. She stood way behind the baseline and played defensively instead of taking the ball early inside the baseline like she did in her first career. The only match she played that resembled her former self was her Tokyo SF vs; Martha.

To this day, I still can't understand how she lost that AO final to Capriati

I don't understand how she lost either of them tbh. After she beat V and S in 2001, she made like 40 UEs in the final

In 2002 Capriati hit lucky shots on the bigs points.

Second of all, it just annoys me how people think she's some amazing talent; when you're unloading on every shot, you're bound to have a day where you hit the lines. It doesn't mean you're talented, it means you're getting lucky.

Oh and I don't like Ana either
I have this irrational instant dislike of ballbashers. And if there ever was an ungainly, brainless, Hulk-ish ballbasher, it's Lisicki. I just can't watch that kind of tennis.

Well, who in the WTA doesn't have them?

Man, I really couldn't stand her during her first career. Actually, it's not just her, she and Rodriguez are like a single entity to me, Rodriguez being the viler half. But I've always thought one should cut her some slack based on her obviously being a very troubled individual with a lot of setbacks in life she had no control over (her unfortunate physique, losing her mother at such a young age...) Rodriguez recognised her potential and her desperate willingness to do anything in order to get ahead in life (which should explain her cheating-prone attitude) and exploited it to make a tennis machine out of her. I do think she played fantastic tennis, but I also think her first abrupt retirement is terribly fishy...

I also can't believe they've lasted this long! I've expected Na to ditch him in record time. But I suppose she's matured along with her game and realised that he can be of use as a coach. But I do hope she treats him like a cockroach that he is.

No wonder you hate Karolina so much.

Imagine him working with JJ; that would last about 5 minutes

But she's not even a pusher, she's an unclassifiable tennis catastrophe.
Also, I like Na a lot, and even don't mind Kvitova now and then, so I don't think that every ballbasher is completely brainless and scorn-worthy. .

Sneki would sit on him.

Tell that to both of my faves who both lost to her five times in a row

I remember Radwanska's dad right before Wimbledon said that his daughters wouldn't be playing an ITF in Poland because it's for players like Wozniacki

I love Na too Though it was such an unfortunate final

Really, I think JJ would talk to him once and just leave
