Re: Elina Svitolina Cheering Thread!

Had to leave for work at 3-2 in the first set. Good timing on my part...
Too bad this matchup has turned so one-sided. Every blowout makes finding confidence for the next one that much harder.
Only a few weeks left this season. Here's hoping for one more good one, at least!

Eviscerated by Petra once again

The sad part is that the final score is actually rather kind to her, considering how dominant Petra was. It was clear from the very first game that this match would not end well for Elina.

When will she learn that feeding Petra short, loopy balls anywhere near the center of the court (including on serve) is a recipe for disaster?

She did seem a bit flat, for whatever reason. But I think most of her frustration came from feeling utterly helpless/overpowered against her opponent today. If anything, I would expect hot & humid conditions like today to affect Petra more than her.

I adore Petra so I don't mind much but I was expecting a bit more from Elina today.
She seems more frustrated than usual. Maybe it's the weather in Wuhan, I would hate to be in a hot polluted place like that.

Not Petra again
(I didn't look at the draw until today)

Winning from a set down is always nice, but such a close scoreline against BMS doesn't really inspire much confidence for another match against Kvitova.
Stupid draw...

^ Agreed. She was definitely too passive today. The first set showed that whenever she managed to take a bit of time away from Osaka (with depth, pace or angles), the errors from the Japanese player would start piling up.

Re: Elina Svitolina Cheering Thread!

Ugh. So frustrating.
I don't know whether Elina got complacent because of Osaka's 3 billion errors in the first set, but she spent most of the last two sets once again just refusing to take the initiative.
I mean, it's one thing if a big hitter puts her on the defensive with a big serve/return/whatever, but all these neutral rallies where she just keeps on waiting and waiting until her opponent makes the first move. And I know she can play better. I've seen it!
*sigh*
Guess I'm gonna start drinking early today...

Elina

She played an almost flawless first set up to 5-0 (she had several set points in that game), but after she failed to deliver the bagel things got trickier. Muguruza served much better in the second set and Elina couldn't do much on return. Elina fought back from a break down twice in the decider and did a good job of wearing Muguruza down and forcing her to go for "panick" shots more and more.

Another hard hitter is next - curious to see how Osaka will handle the occasion.
