Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Lost in the finals to Sofya Zhuk 6-4 7-6, was hoping she win the title but I guess I have to look on the bright side that she did string together some wins here.

By her making the finals here what will her new ranking be ?

No, you're right!!! She was just IN, before she lost all those green clay points from last year.
Hope she gets a good draw, without having touched European clay in warmups

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Even though this is only a $25K, it's good to see Tay put together some wins. I assume she is still playing FO qualies? Hoping for a good draw.

Btw, where are Taylor's two biggest fans on this player board?? Oh...nevermind...... I see they sit in Maria threads. My bad.

Yet, good on Taylor for reaching the main draw, but Mona should have sent her to Charleston.....

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Yikes.
Well I had a feeling she was headed that direction as soon as she left for the new coach. There's zero pop and all types of trickery and spin.
And yes when she played with good power and baseline strength 3 years ago she was playing great and into the top 100. Now it's just wtf type of game.

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Something needs to change. Taylor, I hope you read this.

Taylor vs Ar. Rodionova ...
Taylor's game is a mess from what it was 2 years ago.
At least her serve and ground strokes had some power.
I don't know what her new coach is doing but there are up to no good, tennis-wise.

Now she is all spin, slice and moon balls. Even when she hits an out-wide serve to open up the court, she moonballs the next ball or dumps it in the net. Her returns lacks purpose. She just scoops the ball up and whatever. She barely gets off the ground to serve.
And her ground stroke motion? it's all arms and no coil. The body is still straight up, barely bending. It's no surprise she resorts to moon balling and slicing a lot of times.

And for a player that says 'volley' is her game, she is pretty bad at the net. She'll dump at the bottom of the net most balls, when moving at the net. Gavrilova would make 95% of those shots. Taylor can barely make 10%. Her drop volley is only decent in Doubles, when she is standing and waiting at the net.

How many overheads go straight at the bottom of the net? I couldn't keep watching that disaster. I quit in the middle of that 2nd set. It's the same game I saw a couple of days ago.
Girls needs a new coach as soon as possible. She is capable of playing top level tennis. What she is doing now is not even top-200. Coco or Svitolina would serve her two hot bagels with that game of hers.
2 years ago Taylor would have won this match in 2 straight sets with no sweat.
