Re: Alexandra Cadantu
I have observed this for a while now and have to say that Alexandra definitely needs to loosen up on the big stage or the big event. I really can't blame anyone for believing that she is a total mug the way she is showing up on the big stage or in matches that the neutral observer might interest. Playing at the Indian Wells Centre Court is an overwhelming situation for someone who was playing 10k events in Egypt 3 years ago, but she needs to learn to control her emotions.
I've watched her playing Radwanska in Seoul and she played a determined even match before the injury. I've watched her making things difficult against Simona on clay a couple of times already. She has no problems to deal with Monica's junk and then I watch her playing Kerber in Linz and Kvitova in Katowice in matches that are shown live on Eurosport and that girl can't put a ball in court to save her life, looks tight as a plank and close to a nervous breakdown.
Why does she have problems to believe in herself? Look at what you have done Alexandra to get from the brink of early retirement to a place close to the Top 50! You don't have to hide yourself.
