I suppose you're right. But last year was so solid, maybe not always super good, but she won all the matches she had too. I really hoped it will be the same and even better this year, but if she continues like this a drop in the ranking will follow:confused:

Nikkiri
Apr 6th, 2011, 08:01 PM
Yep, and then next year she will only make up so much ground again because her ranking would have dropped so much. Just never gonna take the next step. I love her she's a sweet girl and she does have a good game but her mentality is gonna let her down always. Just gonna have to be okay with second best.

Nikkiri

I love her she's a sweet girl and she does have a good game but her mentality is gonna let her down always. Just gonna have to be okay with second best.

I remember her saying once during an interview last year that you are either born with mental toughness or you don't have it. Needless to say, Lance Amrstrong, Maria Sharapova and Andre Agassi all worked with a sports psychologist during their careers especially Agassi.

If she continues to believe her comments expect more of the same like you said. Too bad.

kirivanovic
Apr 6th, 2011, 09:59 PM
She's too weak mentally to reach the level that she could reach with her talent. She's always choking and not able to keep a score.It's annoying to follow her knowing that she won't manage to do what she's supposed to do. In Moscow last year, she played like a top 10,so i had high expectations for this year and everything collapsed after 2 tournaments. I wonder what she did during winter but without a real coach, it's hard to train and to do the right things...

Sharapovian
Apr 6th, 2011, 11:33 PM

She won in doubles with Hantuchova though 6-7 6-2 16-14 :yeah:

Overpowered by Anna T? :eek: Anna T has some really nice groundstrokes, especially on the backhand side but Kiri has played far more powerful players to be overpowered by Anna T on green clay. :shrug:

But if it's Kiri without any confidence, then she was probably just guiding the ball with no racket head speed.

Celeborn

Maybe its good that she takes some time for resting and practice. And then restart the season. She also doesn't have too much to defend, she only won a few rounds in Rome last year I think.

Nikkiri
Apr 7th, 2011, 10:00 AM
No, actually she made the QF of Rome so.. a bit to defend that plus a R4 at RG. Lost R1 at Madrid.. so hopefully can make up some points there.
