Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Seems like she didn't enter any tournaments for the 2nd week of the French or the following week, so I guess she's going back home after Roland Garros. You'd think Asia Muhammad must be helping her with her schedule or something

Nonetheless, solid win at the French today - routined local WC Hesse 62 61. Let's see what she can do in R2 against Svitolina, a big step up but not the greatest clay court player.

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

First congrats to Taylor for an OUTSTANDING claycourt season and winning the FO wildcard!

She started the year ranked #304 and now is back in the top 200 at #174

This is her third executive appearance in the FO main draw.

French WC Amandine Hesse should be no problem for her in the first round. Gluck to Taylor!

Don't do like the previous years when you head back home after losing in Paris.
Got to get that ranking up.
I like this idea. Clay really seems to be working out for her.

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Congratulation, Taylor !!!!
You gave it a good fight. Muhammad Asia, your Doubles partner, didn't make it easy. She pushed you as hard as she could to prepare you for what's coming. You girls should keep pushing each other. Muhammed (now ranked under #200) should be eligible for Wimbledon Qualifiers.. Her game should translate well on grass.

Taylor girl, you got lots of work to do.
Go run side to side with racket head down, not extended in front you. You are robbing yourself from any power strike on the run with the racket already extended. There is no way you can have a good strike...all you can do is try cheap forehand slice...you missed all those.. That's a no no ... Watch the video.. ....
Got to keep racket head down while running (Watch lefty Kerber's video.. you'll see what I mean.. should help a lot)..

- Need more out-wide lefty serves.. 1 or 2 aces in 3 sets? you can do better than that.
- Lateral movements sucks, big time..
- Net game sucks in Singles but is excellent in Doubles. Got to correct that.
- Got to remember: there is no easy shot. Too many points given away that should be winners or at least back in play.
- WTA is no ITF. Got to focus.

Good luck at the French.. You must be dead tired after playing and winning non-stop the last 3 weeks. Yes you got stamina.. It's obvious, but retrieving balls side to side is a mess. Got to get to these balls + correct the technique... (watch Sloane on the run.. you can always learn from another player.. doesn't mean the player is better than you overall.... ).

Hope you have a decent first round draw. It was horrible to see the USO mess where they fed you to Serena for breakfast... That was mean from the USTA.

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Amazing! With that WC on the line, Taylor played like her life depended on it! Would be sweet to see her win the title again tomorrow and then get some rest before heading to Europe. Not sure if she'll get to play on the red play before RG though... Good luck anyway!!!

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

Yup, last year she played 15 events: lost in 1st round (Qualies or Main Draw) 9 times; won only 6 first matches in those 15 tournaments.
so she won 6 matches in 15 tournaments, all were 1st matches. Never played a 3rd match in any tournament. That was horrible.

The last 2 tournaments, she won 12 matches out of 13.
Last 3 tournaments, she won 17 matches out of 19. Far better than the entire last year.
Seems she has put last year's nightmare behind.

If the FO is out of the picture, Wimbledon qualies are definitely in sight.
She actually hit #208 in the WTA rankings for this week
