Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

Well that was short

I dont really care for World no.1, I just hope she'll schedule much better in order to perform her best for the bigger title
Now that she's got her no.1 snatched like that, let's hope she'll learn when to give her 100% (obviously not at Tokyo )

The first of hopefully several world #1 spells.

Now time for good rest, training, recovery, focusing on things to improve, building to a new peak. Hopefully already in Singapore Garbine will have shaken off the last effects of virus and any muscle issues.

Alona, I really believed in you Well, we knew when she got it that it probably wouldn't last, what with so many players within such a small distance. And that it was all going to come down to Singapore anyway.

I often wonder if they are under pressure from the WTA or tournament officials to appear?
But they will never tell us.

I only saw a picture of her this weekend and she looked awful, like she had a huge hangover and couldn't wait to get out of there asap so I knew this was coming (and against BS again )

Three weeks to regroup for The YEC.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

^ I personally think it's cute and funny when she's grumpy towards Sumyk, it's the crybaby faces that make me go like come on focus... probably because I criticize Serena for the same thing. I still love her all the same though, grumpy or not

Honestly if she's going to be grumpy I'd rather see a racket smash right now, it's been a while

It would help her get back in the rally when stretched out wide and/or change the rhythm of a rally. She uses the forehand one quite a bit on defense but I swear she's only hit one, maybe two max, all year on the backhand side. I have no idea why Sumyk hasn't added this to her game when Azarenka was great at utilizing this shot.

I didn't get to watch the match unfortunately (or maybe fortunately...) but I expected this would happen. I really hope she withdraws next week or she's going to end up looking like Lucic in Australia when the YEC rolls around. She's been very grumpy recently too. It's time for a break or she's going to lose confidence when she needs it most right now.
A backhand slice is a good idea

Grumpy??! What ever makes you say that!
She is allowed to be human in my book

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

^ she won't run around her BH because she trusts it much more than the FH. She sometimes actually runs around the FH to hit the inside out BH

Anyway, Garbiñe has been playing a bit too predictable these past few weeks. That's OK if the serve is clicking and she's teeing off well on the return, but that's not been the case lately.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

Yes, that remains the biggest issue in her game (@PeakPierce). It's not only the grip. When big hitters find their range you gotta do something to rattle them, and predictably playing 95% of your shots CC doesn't exactly help. Also someone, don't remember who, rightly mentioned that Garbiñe never runs around her BH to play inside out FH to open the court. It was a very acute observation, because that's a shot that helps to break down rallies and you don't need to hit an outright winner, but that shot is totally missing from Garbiñe's repertoire. I am not sure if Sumyk, or a spanish coach, so fond of extreme grips, will be changing any of that.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

I hope she REALLY retools that forehand in the off season. While I'm glad she's matured past the ballbashing days of past years, when she DOES try to pull the trigger on the forehand, she just doesn't seem able to hit the flat, punishing forehands that she did circa 2013-2014.

It's even more pronounced when she tries to go toe-to-toe with a big hitter, like a treeing Ostapenko. She just can't hang there in forehand-to-forehand rallies anymore, and she really needs to sort this out when grinding isn't working. Especially because she's shown a habit of defaulting to power-on-power when she faces off against a big hitter who is in the zone... if you're going to fight power with brute force, you need a reliable forehand that isn't at constant risk of leaking errors, and her current FH just requires way too much time that you aren't going to get against a hard reply.
