Re: Océane Dodin

For those of you who enjoy horror films.

The commentator thought that perhaps Oceane was injured due to her lack of movement. I'm not sure about that since her movement is average even at her best ... She did seem very uninspired though. I don't know, maybe she does have something which causes her pain and on those painful days she just knows she can't win? Either that or she really, really needs to improve her fighting attitude on any surface except indoors. When she feels like she can't win she seems to stop fighting. Towards the end it was pretty much tanking.

Re: Océane Dodin

I watched this huge mess cause it was just horrible. She didnt care, barely moved or give a fight.

Her dad came after the 1st set and she seemed annoyed. No brain keep hitting big when she had to play with security and patience

that's why she should work with another one than his father cause her game MUST improve! she cant just ballbash the ball to death. She's back to her horrible former BBB game. Just horrible to watch.

The person who took these pics said she gave a poor effort.

After Miami, the clay is coming girl. Oh wait, I see that Biel is indoors and is after that 60K she's playing.

Re: Océane Dodin

She knows I think that she has a lot of work to do; that's what she said in Melbourne when she said she is not at her place in Fed Cup team.
I am not very worried because she has some periods where she does not evolve anymore and at one point, things are moving on. She is really young, maybe immature. Let's see.

Re: Océane Dodin

Del Potro

I just love the guy game and attitude. But as an argentinian he worked A LOT on his footwork and physical conditioning.

I saw that she 's in the entry list of Indoor tournament 60K in France starting on 27 March. Always coming back to indoors
About Pauline she worked very hard during the off season along with Kristina Mladenovic so I think she feels very good now thanks to this work. Océane chosing to stay with dad far from the french federation is not good cause as a young french player she could have trained with pauline and kristina and improve.

Dont understand her.

Re: Océane Dodin

I feel like, apart from improving movement, part of what she needs to improve is coping with the variable, higher bounce outdoors. It seems like she sprays a lot of errors outdoors, even more than indoors, probably because indoors the ball stays at around the same height all the time, whereas outdoors she has to make more adjustments to the shot after the bounce, and she really doesn't like to do that. Pauline in particular uses a lot of spin which made this problem worse. Pauline also almost beat Kerber so maybe this loss isn't as bad as it looks. For some reason Pauline has been actually winning quite a bit by her standards in the last year, she must have improved something.

In theory, a tall girl like Oceane should like higher bouncing balls, although clearly she needs a faster surface to really reward her game. She does need to start getting results on at least the faster outdoor hardcourts. She should try to emulate taller flatter ballstrikers like Del Potro. She doesn't need to add a lot of spin, but she definitely needs her powerful groundies to spray less often when outdoors.

Pauline gave an intv on l'Equipe saying she has no problem with Océane nor with Caroline so stop talking nonsense

Spirito42 is right. Océane needs to learn to win matchs other than INDOORS. Her dad came twice and this changed nothing in her insane BBB mode.
Time to get some "humility" and yes work a bit more on her game to improve it. Put some spin and improve her footwork.

For sure I am not. I was hoping she will detroy her for what she said. This Fed Cup drama is becoming a real mess in Océane and Caroline's head; I am sick of watching them flop because they are not ok in their mind because of the drama. This needs to stop

Native American Wells:

Dodin starts getting her deserved punishment for not doing her patriotic duty by losing 2 and 4 to veteran overachieving hackballer French Fed Cup heroine Parmentier.

I'm sure we're all delighted at the poetic justice.

So basically they can say "You won't play RG if not playing FC" they really can do that. And all others tournaments in France. YEP HAVE FUN!
The fact is I don't think she wants to play with Noah as captain. After what he said... and what he just asked... It's a mess.

*was in blod in the french article from FFT, I guess it is meaning they want to do it?
