Re: Nastiya's USO series

I think Nastia can be really proud of herself after the USO she had

I heard she was gonna try to improve her fitness,I can´t wait to see the results

Re: Nastiya's USO series

^ yeah, serve is not what it should be. Her first serve is okay-ish, but if she cant keep up ~70%, she'll be struggling with 2nd serves or DF. Good to see they are working on it (see Baku ), but maybe middle of season is not the best place to do it. Off season is more than 2 months, I hope they'll have time to figure it out, and they can come up with something useful.

And good to hear the fitness thing, but 2 week her and there wont make big difference. Needs year long plans and reasonable diet.

That's the best part: she canbe brilliant. It's not like she's limited by her talent and can only aspire to be a good consistent player, as Wozniacki... She has more potential than that, imo. Whether she fulfills it or not it's another story, but no doubt she's already a joy to watch

Yeah it's positive she goes through big matches against great players, so that she realizes where her own level stands and what sets her apart from a multiple GS champion like Serena.
Hopefully she will learn from this and gain confidence on her game, as she was able to keep up with Serena on the rallies and hit some beautiful winners.

She knows she has a lot of work to do, though. Hopefully the sky sports information is true and gets a little fitter But I think serve is the main thing holding her back at the moment :/

Re: Nastiya's USO: QF vs Serena

She did fine today, nothing to be ashamed of. Her serve and Serena's serve made the difference.

this can push her to work more and be better if she thinking right. More work on serve, better returning, sort out her strategy/gameplan. And of course everybody's favorite topic, fitness.

Nastya lost 5-7, 1-6. Not a bad showing (other than he serve). She really showed glimpses of brilliance.

I always have a hard time watching her matches. Whenever she's going to hit a second serve, I switch the channel Sometimes I'm so nervous I can't even watch... Being a fan of this girl is going to kill me


She shouldn't be bad at the net though... She's not a bad volleyer, but it's true sometimes she rushes it and loses the point stupidly

FH at matchpoint
3rd set was her best i think, mainly because higher 1st serve %. Volleying, net rushing, dropshotting attempts were abyssmal though. (all her volley looked weak puffballs, couldnt kill it with real power, needs to work on that.)
Great week, especially after last months... next match is kinda whatever. But she wont give up .

Re: Nastiya's USO: QF vs Serena

I'm so happy for her and for all of us I couldn't watch it but I followed through livescore...Almost died but it was worth it It's so good she's getting used to the second week of slams and feel like she's there, among the best... The most impressive thing is she did it without a serve I'm excited to see how far she can go when she improves it along with fitness. Ground game is already consistent, without any apparent weakness, and that is very important

I don't care about Serena now. Being in QF is a great achievement already, just when everything pointed to a dissapointing slam for her

Re: Nastiya's USO: QF vs Serena or Ana

By the end I was screaming in front of the television. My dog was so scared

I really thought she was going to give it away after those first two match point, but the third one was just fantastic. HUGE win for her, and a nice revenge. Her serve was wonky as usual, but in the end it seemed much better. Her ground game was really good, gutsy play.

I'm so happy for her. This win must mean alot.

I was just as nervous. I thought to myself that she had to put her away in that 5-4 game. She showed great composure, especially after Schiavone broke back to 2-2. She deserves this, and she payed her back for what happened at the French. I think she has a chance against either Serena or Ana. Go Anastasia!
