that was pathetic until 6-7 2-3 but then just turned it around with a probably great play.. it was Nicole's first match on hardcourts so I hope she will continue well :)

from 6-7 2-3 Nicole won 10 games from 11 :drool::bounce::woohoo:

:yeah:

She faught, and served very well in the 1st and 3rd sets. Big chance this week, with a big open, bottom half of the draw.

I'm starting to think that Nicole isn't TOP 100 material.. she plays like crap again.. her BP conversion is probably the most terrible I've ever seen :sad:

her BP conversion is probably the most terrible I've ever seen :sad:

I'd find the BP conversion rate on this match hilarious if this wasn't one of my faves choking away one decisive point after another and then tanking away a winnable match.

I really don't understand this. What's the pressure? She has hit rock bottom already and has nothing to lose.

I don't know what to think... Nicole's such a crap this year.. just a few good results... that's next hilarious lost and next bagel received from a crap player.. Nicole really need a sport psychologist.. can't believe she still says she doesn't.. then she's stupid and will waste whole career..

Sports psychologists are full of shit. The Sergeant Major approach would probably be more helpful.

There's still a long way to go until Nicole can be written off I suppose, unless she has written herself off already. But wouldn't it be wise to step it up when the competitive level of the WTA is crashing down seemingly each day and not just each week?

Her sponsors still got her on the USO Series ad. I'd have given up by now if I was them.

2008 seems like a lost cause already for Nicole.

What a pathetic performance from Nikki. :sad: :mad: Just as she gives us a glimmer of hope, she lays another egg. She was absolutely terrible in the second set and played like she wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible.

She was absolutely terrible in the second set and played like she wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible.

But WHY? This kind of serial tanking is unprecendented. I mean, I have never seen a pro player do anything that even comes close to this.

If Nicole is indeed tanking as soon as she faces the smallest setback (in this case, losing a set after wasting countless opportunities to get ahead of Mattek), then why is she still playing instead of doing whatever she feels like right now and letting me pick some other fave (no obvious replacement, but that's another matter)?

The result in the doubles match wasn`t a surprise. At least she and Sabrine didn`t get bageled in it.

according to my friend who was at the match

"Nicole played quite well but at the end of the first set she made a lot of stupid ue's and deserved to lose the first set, second set was terrible from Nicole and at 0-5 she tanked it to be off the court" :rolleyes:

I don't understand why Nicole wants bagels though she is lossing 0-5 :sad:

hope she will get it together for Montreal :help:
