To say this is unexpected on clay is an understatement

shahar served at 46% and served 5 doubles and aleks still lost:o

Wozniak is feeling the pressure of playing the Olympics...you can see that. Since she's talked about the possibility of it, she's been playing awful!!

:smash::facepalm: Feck... If she doesn't defend her points at least next week I think her chances of going to the Olympics will go up in smoke. She's got to start getting it together or the Olympics will be missed out on again.

Shahar's serve was terrible today, but probably she covered that with her groundstrokes.
First bagel in a long time over a top 100 player. Hopefully a confidence boost?...

Aleks has the nasty habit of overhyping herself only to choke at her own expectations.

Meanwhile, Wozniak just beat Peer on red clay a few weeks ago. She has to be nervous over the Olympics.

then whats her excuse the rest of the time?

aleks only plays well for small patches of time and for the rest of the season she plays like crap. This is just normal her. I dont deny players might be excited about playing the olympics but im not sure what pressure she would feel since no on expects her to do anything there

It sucks that she beat her comfortably on clay a few weeks ago, not to mention the 6-0, 6-1 pounding in Toronto last year. You make it hard for us fans, Aleks! Good luck at RG!

I really don't think you point the right cause. I don't think Olympics matter that much. Still, in overall, RG is her best Slam, and surface. She's kinda not motivated, coz her rankings climb took a stump in the last weeks. She's been featured two or three times on the WTA website for off-court activities in the last 2 months, so I think her forearm injury's also holding her back, we know that injured players are the most active off-court.

She had a few opportunities she didn't cling this year. She could have upset Radwanska @Dubai, she was points away. Same @Indian Wells against Stephens. She had a good performance @Nassau, but then she had MPs against Venus. 3 of her last 4 clay defeats should have been victories. Against Beck and Tatishvili, she should work harder when getting 5-5. Peer, she already beat her when she was a few spots higher, and today it failed.

Being in Quebec, I remember she gave an interview in french a few weeks ago. Hopefully we'll get back that Stanford-Bartoli-beating Aleks we had years ago. Allez!

That's a bad lost for Aleks, that last set makes me thinks that it's more than pressure that is going on. HOpefully not another injury. Let's see what she'll do in RG, she is usually always so motivated there.

Aleks has been a little patchy the last few events, but I wouldn't read too much into this result - Peer is the kind of player you're either going to play well and take her out, or you're going to have a miserable day and she will drive you crazy. Even with a loss at Roland Garros she's sitting in pretty good standing for Olympic qualification at this point so hopefully she's not worrying too much about that :)

Aleks :o a bad loss but not entirely surprising. from what I've seen of her recently, serve is looking more vulnerable than ever and she is playing way too passively.
