Anybody watched the game? Report?

There are some posters who watched the match. According to them (and my beloved stats), Nastya had a perfect first set. They said she was constantly hitting unbelievable winners during the first set and her serve was great (though not 150mph-great). The first time she lost a point on her serve was in her fourth service game, the time when she was broken when serving for the set.

Second set was weird...posters said, she looked totally out of style, but Peer was good.

However, itīs time for Nastya to get rid of one of the French Open-first round-nightmare-opponents from the past ;)

Tomorrow: set a new world-record again!!!

She will never win another grand slam. She is a train wreck right now. People talk about Dementieva's serve but I think Myskina's is worse now. She never seems to hold serve anymore. I no longer have confidence in her ability to win. She is still my fav player but I fear the worst.

I think she needs a new coach and a break from tennis.

I get back to my two ideas: take time out (I donīt care when), build a house out of wood and stay in it and get a new coach, someone who doesnīt like to be yelled at and yells back and make her train even though she doesnīt feel like it. She needs to change something. Of course you can say that itīs because sheīs tired, but no matter how tired you are, as a top-player she should be able to win against lower ranked players.

AMELIA ISLAND, Florida: Anastasia Myskina was honored Thursday by The Florida Times-Union and Water’s Edge Magazine, a Platinum Patron of the 2005 Bausch & Lomb Championships, who each year presents a deserving player with the “Commitment to Community” Award for their contributions to deserving charities. This year, the award was presented to Anastasia Myskina in recognition of her donation of time and money to help the victims of the Beslan school tragedy last year in Russia. Pictured with Anastasia are (c) a Water's Edge representative and tournament director John Arrix.

Who knows when that point will come? It's heartbreaking for me the see her crumbling into 2nd,3rd or 4th round of every tourney. No good can come out of this. Take a break Nastya please. Do whatever you want, think it over...this is the way to end your career? In a chain of losses? Remember you're a Grand Slam champion. Or you think that was luck, yourself?

I want what's best for her (health is a priority) so frankly I don't care about the stupid rankings anymore. Shoulder problem solved....plenty of time to see how's life without tennis, and decide if you want to ever comeback. This should tell us how much she loves tennis. She will be back.
There's also a catch....Jens could get another girl to coach (I'm counting on this) and trainer problem solved also.

I don't know the exact nature of Nastya's shoulder injury, but surgery doesn't fix all shoulder problems. Kim had a serious shoulder injury in 2002, and was told shoulder surgery only had a 50% chance of curing it but to go through a strenous rehab program and strengthen the muscles of the shoulder and back and now it is better (not 100% but better than it was). And she could keep playing through it, so maybe Nastya is doing something similar.

I'm a little surprised by Nastya's form this year after I saw her start at Hopman. She was hitting the ball so cleanly in her singles then and I thought she was set for a great summer. But I think Nastya can turn things around and still have a good year and make top8 for LA, there are still 3 slams left and several tier 1 events.

(...)Myskina donated clothing, toys and money to the Red Cross to help the victims, and also spent time at a Moscow hospital, visiting with eight families who were directly affect by the tragedy.(..)

Well...well... :kiss:

Ahhh...regarding to her shoulder: I donīt know. Quote from her 2004 Indian Wells Post-Match Interview after her SF-loss to Justine:

You seem to be struggling with your serve tonight?
Yeah, I have a little bit pain in my shoulder today.

The pain in your shoulder, is it something you had a lot?
Not a lot, but sometimes I do have. Yeah, when I play a lot of matches. Itīs the muscle inflamed.

Itīs like a sharp pain in your shoulder or a constant ache?
Itīs sharp

Seriously, I donīt know how she has the courage to play on. That "sharp pain" she refers to is a constant reminder of her shoulder condition (at least it has the effect on me) and if I were a pro and everything depends on my shoulder, I would be scared to hell. She has quite a good chance to have a complete tear and that would keep her off for more than a year. Of course itīs hard to comeback but still itīs even harder to "lose" your whole shoulder. It only gets worse...

""Over the last two years Anastasia has emerged as one of Russia's top female tennis players," commented Frankie Whelan, Executive Director of the Family Circle Cup.

jmcfarla
Apr 10th, 2005, 11:01 PM
I think it's a fairly difficult draw. :eek:

I know she has avoided Lindsay/Venus/Justine. But Nicole in the 2nd round would be a real challenge, against a young player with a great serve, who is having a good year, improving with each match, and is playing without fear.
Past Nicole, Nastya may have to play Asagoe followed by Patty. Two players who have already beaten her this year.

Of course if Nastya clicks into gear this is the perfect opportunity to get the season going and gain some revenge on those who have beaten her this year. ;)

But the problem is she isn't going to get any easy games, so she has to be on right from the word go.
Then again at least she shouldn't get bored.:yeah:

However, Vaidisova is one of those typical female Bollettieri-students...hitting the crap out of the ball (not as bad as others though). Sometimes it goes in, sometimes not...of course I hope it wonīt go in;)

It is hard to calm down when she has done nothing but suck this year.

At least I still have Lena, Tati, and Justine to try and win this title.

I know she won't fall out of the top 10 but she should. Clearly she is not a top 10 player anymore. Not right now. Maybe never again.
