I don't know what's happening with her at the moment. All i know is, she is not the same player after that injury in Hopman Cup this year.

All that doubles cash.

Just simply has not gotten anything together after coming back from that injury. Lack of confidence, game breaking down, Im shocked shes not getting confidence from doubles... I think a new coach and new approach for singles is needed quickly. She needs to play a lot of ITFs after NY.

She is a really good player and she always reminds me of a cat on the court. Hope she can regroup fast.

I don't know but I worry that it might be more than simply a lack of confidence. I just hope that knee injury did not affect her speed around the court, but right now I wouldn't rule out that as a possibility.

I don't think it has anything to do with confidence. She just hasn't been able to play as well since her injury. I think she's slowly getting back into form though. And she really didn't play badly at her match today (which I was at.) Bychy just played a little better in the big moments (most notably those 2 tiebreaks.)

It's probably the knee operation but her singles form was on the decline a bit after the French Open last year (8-11 in singles isn't too great). I think she might have returned a bit too quickly after the operation too. I don't think her scheduling has been particularly wise for a slumping player either and I suppose doubles has taken a bit of focus away from singles. But now I generally just think it's confidence. :sad: I was really impressed when I saw her against Zheng Jie in Birmingham and I think she just needs one tournament to turn things around because she can clearly still play well (see Cincinnati doubles).
