She doesnt seem in form lately. She needs a bit of a break I think. Plus her style of game is getting just over powered now by big hitters.

She hasn't played Venus in a match that really matters.

Maybe it's the Italian top 10 curse. :p

Flavia has always struggled with consistency. Her goal this year has to be to solidify her position in the top 20 and then make a climb towards the top 10. As much as I like her she has to make some big improvements to achieve that goal.

I Just hope she decides to play before she has to defend all those points later in the year. :lol:

:lol: I know:help:

She doesn't usually start the year well, but normally her game picks up in South America. This year that trip was quite bad:tape:

No idea what's going on with her though. It doesn't seem like anything is wrong with her. Maybe that foot injury is bothering her a little (a little setback in movement makes a huge change in her game) but it really didn't seem so serious, so I doubt it.
She probably just has problems to find her game, and to adjust to her new situation (it's quite different for her now than early in 2008). I still firmly believe she'll come up with a good tournament or 2 at some time we don't expect it anymore.
