Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

I really think she need to go back to Zina or find some other coach, I would hate her to follow DY jr path. Hopefully she get it together soon

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Since Taylor's been back with the Young camp, her game has become similar to Donald's. He's a retriever until he can get on top of the ball. He's quick and has to play the angles. I believe they have the same racquet sponsor and probably strings.

That's not Taylor's game. At least somewhere I saw her say she went back to the style she started with.

Her fitness level will not permit her to execute that defensive style. All the loopy topspin shots, and retrieving. That's not the game that she beat Cornet with at the FO a few years ago. And even the best defensive players have to instinct to "get on top" of a rally and even she doesn't execute that as well as she can. She's lost that instinct since adopting this new style.

She needs to go back to the aggressive game. That's a style her fitness level will permit her to execute successfully at the current moment, especially on the upcoming grass and hardcourt season.

At some point it'll all click for her and as fans, it's not when we want, lol. We want it to come together now. It's just perplexing that her junior contemporaries are all ahead of her when she has every shot in the book and is just as talented. Bencic and Konjuh come to mind.

This is nothing new in pro tennis though. I would like to see her make her mark on the WTA and not be the talented junior who faded among the ranks of the senior tour.

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Townsend could have taken out Hsieh. She graciously gave Hsieh that 3rd set. She can't stay focus...

She needs a coach, someone who actually played pro tennis or at least college tennis.
Her flaws are technical. She can hit any shot in the book, just doesn't know when. Her position to return serve is the same, whether the opponent is a bomb throwing Coco or feather throwing Errani; whether it's a first or second serve... She stands 100 miles back like she is playing ATP, facing 900mph serves. All that is hurting her.

She needs someone to explain to her how to play pro WTA tennis. Her transition from Junior to Senior is hampered by that lack of overall game plan. Whoever is coaching her presently is very limited.
Sorry, the girl is wasting her time. If she continues like that, pretty soon she'll turn 30 still playing ITF. There are lots of talented girls like that on the tour. Could never make the transition from talented juniors to pro.

GL to Taylor at the FO:

(wc)Paquet v Kr. Pliskova
Hibino v (28)Garcia


Great first match to defend her second round points.

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
