Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

Well, there's your job, Steffi:

You know what you've got to do, get on the front foot, keep her moving and get to the net first. And don't panic if you are passed a few times.

All the very best! Will be riding every point, as usual.

^ that website is a veritable open-cut mine of Stefanie Vögele photos. He's taken truckloads.

There's my day completely shot.

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

Have a nice picture:

Click the image for the source and the artist.

The Facebook page tells us that the source photo was taken during at 's-Hertogenbosch in the match against Nao Hibino.

It's no good kicking the furniture, just got to hope Steffi finds a way out of this slump.

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

But now, in the main draw at Mallorca, with the big girls.

R1 tonight, against Anastasija Sevastova.

Third up on Court 1:

Do wish her luck!

Watch it here. Too late for me, but I'll wake up anxious to find out!

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

I was following the scores, and it all started so well. Steffi had points for a double break to go 5-1 up. And she had a set point, serving at 5-3.

But it didn't happen. So very disappointing for her.

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

Stef will be on court soon, but in the meantime I just want to post two amazing photos:

About to play a backhand slice, on grass. Pics from Wimbledon 2015 - the Madison Keys match, IIRC.

Isn't she perfect?

Look at her weight balance. Her position. The racquet swing. How she watches the ball.

Now look at the extension of her back arm. Now see how she's going to properly get under the ball, as you need to on grass.

Here's a photo of Evonne Goolagong*, for comparison:

See what I mean? Steffi's slice backhand ticks all the boxes. All of them. She Just Needs To Get Quicker To The Ball.

Love it. Just a reminder that whilst she doesn't always win, she's always a joy and a treat to watch.

*I'm not for a moment suggesting that Steffi deserves comparison with one of the all-time greats of the game. She's not even a tenth of the player Evonne ever was. But I DO say she is a very good player in her own right.

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

Second up on Court 6 (no stream, out in the car park, metaphorically speaking, so that ought to make Steffi more comfortable.

Steffi's very much a confidence player, so this is awful news.

Still, it's not a quarter-final, and will probably be on an outside court, so those things should settle her nerves a bit. And it's on grass, so those net putaways should not be coming back.

Good luck, Steffi!

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

Anyway, with that, the five long months on the practice courts is at last over. Real, proper tennis starts now.

In the main draw at 's-Hertogenbosch.

Get ready to bend those knees, and practice charging to the net, Stef! You can do this.

Re: Stefanie Vögele!!!

In the GM results thread, gamesetrafa said Steffi was pushed off the baseline by aggressive play. Having slept on it, that may well be the story of the match. Steffi was beaten at exactly her own game, and had no answers.

Pictures from today's match.

Be still, my beating heart.

Backhand slice coming right up.

Showing some muscle, if not quite in the Stosur class.
