ricard89 Has a new coach now for the first time in about 100 years. Can't blame them entirely as the slump goes back further than that. But things seem to be getting worse under their watch not better....

Re: Ekaterina Makarova making waves Thread

I dont understand why her singles game is in so much turmoil.
Sveta/Lena was the IW final. Kasatkina won Charleston, Pavlyuchenkova won Monterrey and Rabat
Kate was in the top 8 in singles, making slam semis. This is a very prolonged slump and her last 2 matches, are 2 of her worst
Yesterday 08:23 PM
ricard89 A bit of good news in doubles at least, Kate looked happy and relaxed as they strolled through 6-1 6-0. The polite silence that greeted any rare good shot by Jurak/Rodionova was quite amusing. Even if things aren't going well Kate still has honorary citizenship in this part of the world......
Its quite a stacked draw but would be nice if they could make a bit of a run here. Think it would be good for Kate too....

Yes, she was terrible during some of her service games, missing easy net balls and routine ground strokes. She was starting to play better, until after she beat Kerber in Paris.
Now she has to regroup because her lefty game is very good on grass and Wimbledon is and should be an important part of her year

That was worse than bad; something is badly wrong.

Losing to CSN is no shame, but the way Kate played is worrying.

Lost badly to Navarro. Its been a very uneven erratic year so far. Needs to play a lot better at Wimbledon

Only seems to play the one warm up tournament these days which I agree is unfortunate. OK I could maybe understand not entering the first tournament of the grasscourt season as Lena and Kate are hoping to get to the final at RG in doubles.

But don't think Kate has played Birmingham since 2012 possibly?

Then again might not make much difference - even in form Katya only really turns up for The Slams (and Eastbourne).

Happy birthday Kate! Born 7 June 1988, 29 on Wednesday. Olympic Gold medalist and multiple slam winner in doubles, slam semifinalist in singles!

Lucie H and Siniakova up next so Kate and Lena will have to be on their game.

Know they had a good record against Lucie and Andi but think they might have also beaten this team already at some point this year...

Good comeback, into the QF in doubles
As far as singles, after you beat World #1 62 62, I can understand how suddenly expectations and pressure get much bigger.
But Kate was in slam semis and won WTA singles titles. She should be able to handle a big win and still play well.
Maybe on grass she will be more consistent

Down a set today. They have to get it together

At least Kate still has the doubles. Won against Alla/Panova. Not the best match they ever played but came through comfortably enough in the end 6-4 6-3.
