In many of her interviews, she doesnt look too concerned honestly about her performance in YEC. I really dont know what can be drawn from this. I guess it's good that she's still feeling solid about her game (regardless the result). But in a way it could be a faux confidence, since she's obviously still holding to that RG result. I have a feeling the australian swing will be the momentum for Garbine to decide whether she keeps Sumyk with her for the rest of 2017 or not.
I also use that app for quite some time, and I think it is really good, she really takes care of her fans in a nice way and shows her personality very well. It is important in todays mobile-net world, because all these sportsmen/women are ppl of public life. Fans do pay the tickets, buy articles and stars should also make their own contribution to the fan community bcs it is meant to be mutual.

However there is another extreme of that and that is anonymity, bcs everyone can write his bullshiet or comment on everything, which isnt nice to see/watch/read all the time. Keys recently talked about some abusive comments she received and she tackled that issue in a deserved way. Nobody deserves such shiet bcs of a bad day or bad form, and I also think if you are a fan of e.g. Garbine why installing such app if you dont like her or wanna diss her or sth else. Fans wanna encourage her, wish her good luck for matches, good health etc. And that is fine.

However I think if we subtract a considerable amount of fans from Spain/Latin America, she doesnt have such a huge fanbases, some other players have, before all Halep and Aga. I personally dont know how these two have so much fans. Garbine always impressed me with her character and sincerety and that is why I will always follow her as a tennis player. I really think she deserves some more fans, and ppl are sometimes too harsh of her, putting too much focus on bad form and forgetting what she really is capable of.

About the interview, I really feel she is intelligent enough, and her emotions show that she gets everything as it is, without false hopes or illusions. She is certainly aware she needs to improve and lets see how she develops in off-season, apart of that RG there are not so much points to defend so she can only get better ranked.

I was watching the interview after the Svetlana match, which I couldn't and wouldn't watch anyway, and she tried to sound upbeat, but she was emotional, and you could clearly see her disappointment, which I understand, because she knows she never should have lost the Pliskova match and that she fucked up her whole YEC, which was her last chance to redeem her post-RG sad season, because of it; but viewing the bigger picture, she's said this has been a very hard year for her, which shows she's conscious that outside RG she has massively underperformed, but at the same time you can see the RG title still weights too heavy and that she's not handling even remotely well the pressure and the critics, which I find the most worrying of all. It's easy to say from the outside, but my impression is that both she and Sam have been going through the motions, just waiting for a sudden return to form without really changing anything or having a clear new gameplan to right the sinking ship, and are puzzled and scratching their heads wondering why this hasn't happened.

I doubt she will drop Sam soon unless a disastrous AO-Middle East season.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

Yeah, she picked up her game a bit for this YEC, but she's obviously hitting a wall on several fronts. Time to find a new perspective and start from square one next season.

If she's going to do it, that's another matter.

On a side note, the fact that on such bad form and lacking all confidence she only lost against recent USO finalist after a massive choke/collapse and made it competitive against the #3 player in the race, speaks volumes about the current dismal state of the tour.

I swear 2012 Errani would be winning slams.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

Garbine's game in this tournament has been a little better than what I expected, TBH. Looking forward, I think it's time for a new coach. I have nothing against Sumyk. He tried, he had a reasonable plan and it can be argued that he was partially successful given that they won a slam (and a PM) together. But right now they are stuck and I think that only a new voice can provide the necessary thrust.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

It is all on Garbine in my view. These changes we saw didn't begin with Sumyk, they began before that.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

In a way, I'm kind of glad the YEC ended as poorly as it did. It'd be easier to ignore all the losses had she performed well here, but now I feel like she has no choice but to reevaluate the game plan and figure out a way to snap out of this coma.

Because, unlike Bouchard, I really do think it's all on Garbiñe. The majority of her losses this year (I'll stop short of saying all) were completely winnable matches.

What does she say in that interview.

No wonder she is not deluded, she is full of temperament but intelligent, not a spoiled brat like Bouchard. That is why she is always top 5-10 and Bouchard is not.

The problem is this is another big blow on her already low confidence.
I hope she can take the positives from this match and put a good fight against Aga. Everything's not lost yet though I bet she leaves this 0-3
She sounded very positive in her presser but yeah, realistically her chances are slim. Winning this match would have given her loads of confidence, and as you've said, she could have started to turn around this embarrassing match up, because there's no reason why she shouldn't start beating Pliskova at least as many times as she loses to her. Apart from the Cinci match, Garbi really should have won at least in Dubai and yesterday. It was more about her fucking it up at the end of the road than Pliskova doing anything special, but it is what it is.

Aga is in good form despite her loss yesterday. Svetlana is an awful matchup for her because she's such a resourceful player, and she hits a wall against her when she uses her trickery. As at the start of the tournament, I am expecting nothing, so let's see what happens.

the most annoying thing is she worked hard to reverse the match in second set, could have gone home there but built up a great lead from there. All that hard work all for zilch.

And drop that fake zen attitude. I seriously despise it now.

/end rant
yes I was fuming myself. How could she choke that badly? It's not like Pliskova is a model returner who can't be hit off the baseline
