I'm getting worried about Michelle and her career. :scared:

I am worried too, these defeats depress, but still I hope that everything will turn for the better, let's look at the bright side. I remember Yanina Wickmayer in 2009, when she lost everywhere and to everyone, she descended to ITF level, got het confidence together and won then in Estoril, I think Michelle needs the same, - to play a bit in k25, k50 - to get accustomed to wins

boa sorte, Michelle, hope for a good draw in Palermo

Now she's not in Palermo anymore. I'm seriously not understanding her schedule decisions... Why would she waste a WC on a clay itf tournament when she could have entered WTA tournaments on clay on that same week. IMO, she has almos the same chance to win a match on an International tournament or an ITF.

In every match we get to see of her I think we can say that she has a really good game and I'm starting to think it's the scheduling and the lack of competitive rythm that's blowing her career, right now.

Can you tell more about the match? Thanks

It was very frustrating because Michelle has so much power and was placing her shots well, but brengle kept hanging in and waiting for Michelle to hit long or wide. Both did have some very good winners, but it seemed like whenever there was a key point that Michelle needed to win, brengle kept up with her pace and allowed Michelle to overhit herself in to an error. If only Michelle had a better serve, she could have more of an advantage on her serve and win games more easily, but she really never had an easy game in the entire match.

oh well, it was nice to see her in action again though. I hope to see her again at the USO :)

I've been wondering what the hell has gone wrong with her in the last season & I finally got my answer today. First, her serve has always been a problem but today it was a basically a point-giver, almost a double fault per game! Next her ground game is so mediocre compared when I first saw her (against Kuznetsova), she keeps hitting crosscourts that are have no angle and no depth, rarely changing play by going down the line. She does not even look as fast she was when she was in the top 100 & winning WTA matches.

I don't know what has caused such a decline in her game but she needs to do something fast.

What happened to Michelle last year? Well, I think that she was suffering from burnout. She made the comment below during the Midland tournament back in February:

I lost a lot of motivation. I used to have a lot of fight in me, but this past year I haven’t been fighting at all. I don’t know what happened, but I’m getting over it now.
http://www.tennispanorama.com/archives/4201

She certainly wouldn't have been the first, young phenom to end up in a slump due to being overstressed and overworked. If she was burnt-out, taking a break from tennis would have been the best solution. Of course, that is easier said than done when you play tennis for a living. We, the fans, are on the outside looking in. We don't know what sorts of pressures she may be facing either on or off the court, and we need to keep that in mind.

Even if she isn't burnout, I still believe that she has been pushing herself too hard. Why did she play Wimbledon last year when she had that shoulder injury? Reportedly, the doctors had advised her not to play. In all honesty, players play hurt all of the time, so there's nothing unusual about that. However, you always run the risk of making an injury much worse and ultimately having to go under the knife. Maybe that's okay for somebody like Sharapova, who has already won Grand Slams, but Michelle hasn't even cracked the Top 40 yet. Anyway, I'll say it again. We are on the outside looking in.

All said and done, I'm not giving up on her anytime soon. :) She's young, and she's got time on her side. Once she makes the right decisions, things will work out for her in the end. I just really hope that the people around her are helping her to make the right ones...

So I know this is late, but it brings back better memories of Michelle's last final. Which she won :D.

09 Feb 2011 - Rancho Santa Fe, CA, USA - Nick Fishpool

Career first title for Michelle Larcher de Brito

Just a week after turning 18, Portuguese Fed Cup player Michelle Larcher de Brito was celebrating her career first singles title at a professional tournament. This special moment came on the ITF Pro Circuit at the $25,000 tournament held at Rancho Santa Fe in California, USA.

The former WTA Top 100 ranked player, up against 20-year old American 3rd seed Madison Brengle in the final held on Super Bowl Sunday, had to recover from a set down to claim the title with a 36 64 61 triumph in a match lasting just 1 minute short of the 2-hour mark. The first set of this final was the only set of tennis dropped all week by the fourth seeded player en route to her first final, having, in the earlier rounds, recorded comfortable straight sets wins over her opponents, including a quarterfinal 62 63 victory over another seeded opponent in Ukrainian Tetiana Luzhanska, who was seeded eighth.

Following her win, Larcher de Brito said: “I am really pleased with how I played this week and I am happy to win my first title of the year. I fought hard and I have been working a lot on my game so it feels good to see some results like this.”

Currently ranked around the 200 mark, her team and fans will be hoping this title will be the first of many for the talented teen as she looks to climb the rankings and return to the WTA Top 100.
