Yes it very much gives off the feel of confusion, a player who has had their tennis world turned upside down. Her interviews don't fill you with much hope either. First she had some niggling injuries last year, and she's fit and healthy now. Then she lost her motivation last year, and she's regained it now (reasons she re-iterates in the interview with Cronin). She has said numerous times she feels her game is back at a good level now, and she's happy and confident about where her tennis is going. She's kind of exhausting her reasons for her performances not being up to par, but the real solutions don't seem to be forthcoming. The problem is this has been going nearly 2 years now, and the turnaround doesn't look any closer in sight.
