I can be positive when I want to be. I think Laura deserved praise today. Normal service will be resumed shortly.

I know the serving was dire from both but I actually thought the rest of the tennis was a high standard! Some really good rallies...GM obviously disagrees with me tho
Laura's serve has always been overrated. Yes, it's a big leftie serve but it's her groundstrokes that make her devastating. Especially on slower courts, where fewer points can be won off the serve anyway.

Other positives, much better movement by Laura!!! Got things back she hasn't been getting and on several occasions hit some good defensive shots that Ana then missed on. I thought her attitude was pretty good, just hope she isn't hit too hard by the nature of this loss.
I think she'll be annoyed that she lost the match, but at the same time it's not a 6-1 loss in the third set and she did that on her own, which should build some confidence.
