QR1: [21] Taylor Townsend def. (wc) Sofya Zhuk 7-6(3) 7-6(5)

No one able to hold serve in this match. Sonya was *2-5 down in the second and came back to *6-5. Got broken to love trying to serve out the set. Then another tiebreak where she was behind the whole time.

Earlier in the match her winning % behind her 2nd serve was something like 27%. She improved it slightly towards the end with that run of games. But it's a liability.

Hopefully Iain can help her to get more stability in her game so she's not dropping serve this much.

Oh yes. It's hard to keep track of all the coaching arrangements. Iain is still mentioned on the Henin Academy website although I'm not sure if he's still affiliated.

I forgot Sonya had Pat Harrison listed as her most recent coach and was working with him in the States.

But this to me seems like a very good appointment. If Iain can do for Sonya what he did for Eli then it can only be good.

Re: Sofya Zhuk

Just noticed this on the ITF.



She's listing her coach as Iain Hughes. Hughes was Svitolina's coach until she dropped him at the end of last season. He got her into the Top 20.

I guess he is a replacement for Olivier Jeunehomme?

It seems yes. QWC this year rather than MDWC. Seems sensible.
