I.E. - Before Asia she used to hit few balls to the "T" point at the center in every match and she got lots of points there. Against Venus and Ula she forgot that the "T" serve even exists, and she just went into attack mood without thinking.
Wrong attitude was her problem, nothing bad technically. But its normal.
She is just a human being, she wanted success now and it made her lose focus on the game itself point by point. Just 22, she learns, she has a lot of time to get where she wants to be.
The future is good Simona, just take it easy. Play tennis, not "rankings"
