JJ is still an idiot for letting stuff get to her on MP. Given it's such an important point, she should be even more calm! Serena takes her time against plenty of players, do they blow up like an idiot? And Serena deserves the right to take her time as well on these big points, would you say? It's not like JJ isn't guilty of slowing down the server either.
Kadar is really the one to blame, but Serena with her comments directly to JJ is undprofessional. JJ never speaks to the player directly, she goes to the chair umpire. Serena didnt need to make those comments, because it is intimidation factor for sure!
Yep I agree, but inconsistent umpiring is part of tennis. Why does JJ have to let it effect her game? It's so frustrating to watch.
The only thing I blame JJ is for being an idiot, which she has been doing all year so far. Just focus on your game girl, play a whole match like you played those match points. She needs to be more focused and let things go.
It's frustrating for sure. She has been playing pretty well, and the losses aren't even that bad, Azarenka, Kerber, Halep, Makarova, and Serena are all terrific players - but the WAY she loses is just so frustrating. Mentally imploding against Azarenka, Halep, Kerber, and Serena. It's just so frustrating to watch.
