Probably her weakest point of the year, but who knows she always surprises us!

Losing to McHale atm :unsure:
Down 6-1 3-0 :sobbing:

Apr 5th, 2011, 09:41 PM
Now its 16 05. This will be one of Alisa's worst ever losses

Apr 5th, 2011, 09:44 PM
Injured? :unsure:

Apr 5th, 2011, 10:08 PM
hate too see alisa go down like this and hope she not injured but if she is would example the score anyway where she play next she going have too pick it up a bit and start winning again hope she win herself a title before the year over

Apr 5th, 2011, 11:03 PM
Alisa loses a lot of early round matches in the US.
But this is embarrassing to lose to a ITF player like that
She has doubles tomorrow, lets see if she plays

Apr 6th, 2011, 08:10 AM
Apparently she wasn't injured. She was just playing incredibly badly.

Alisa talks about the game on clay here:

Alisa Kleybanova: "My game is fast and aggressive, so I usually go for my shots a lot, but clay is different. It's nearly impossible to play just two or three shots in a clay court rally. You have to build the points more and play with more variation in your game, so that's what I try to do on this surface. You can't have the hardcourt game in your head because you'll rush things too much."

Tough start lost set 1, but up 3-1 in the 3rd against Johansson

Apr 27th, 2011, 12:53 PM
Alisa won 57 63 62, next is Barrois or Vesnina.
Doubles today also.

Apr 27th, 2011, 05:00 PM
Alisa & Galina won round 2 doubles 63 75, and Alisa got a look at Barrois, who is next

Apr 27th, 2011, 06:18 PM
Hard-fought victory but most important was done.Now go and avenge Vesnina ;)

Apr 27th, 2011, 06:24 PM
If Alisa doesnt win its more days off before Madrid.
Madrid, paris, Wimbledon.
3 chances to make a special run. If not, there's still the USO

Apr 27th, 2011, 07:02 PM
I remember that great night match in Madrid couple of years ago where she beat Venus.Hope she can bring another good performance this year there as I'm going to the tourney :)

Apr 28th, 2011, 12:38 PM
Alisa was up 3-1 but lost set 1, 4-6. Very bad sign. She's done that a lot, lose after an early lead.

Apr 28th, 2011, 01:07 PM
I think Alisa went from 4-1 to 4-6 1-5, like the McHale match a few weeks ago

Apr 28th, 2011, 01:28 PM
Alisa was up 3-1 but lost set 1, 4-6. Very bad sign. She's done that a lot, lose after an early lead.

I hope she stop it, it like she giving up on herself. i really like to see her win another title.

Apr 28th, 2011, 01:32 PM
Alisa lost to Barrois 46 26, still has doubles

Apr 28th, 2011, 07:42 PM
They won doubles. Alisa loses these singles matches in such a onesided way that I wonder if she was going to retire from doubles.
But no, its just something about singles

Apr 29th, 2011, 04:54 AM
Well I hope she make A great run @ Mutua Madrileņa Madrid Open SHe really could used it if she could go to Quarterfinals or Semifinals that be great. I still hoping as well she win herself her third title this year

Apr 30th, 2011, 03:17 PM
Alisa is still in Estoril. Its raining and the doubles match is suspended at 2-1 in the 1st.
1st round Madrid already started.

Apr 30th, 2011, 04:44 PM
Alisa & Galina won the Estoril doubles title, now on to Madrid, and a tough 1st round match with Peer

Apr 30th, 2011, 04:58 PM

May 2nd, 2011, 10:32 AM
Alisa got to madrid and beat Peer 63 62. So she can play really good clay tennis

May 2nd, 2011, 01:17 PM

May 4th, 2011, 11:24 AM
Alisa losing 26 25 to Vinci

May 9th, 2011, 05:00 PM
