Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
Well, if you watch her in doubles and mixed doubles, you can see that she doesn't need much improvement per se. Her game is fine. Her mood is not. Of course, movement is not so important in doubles, but she doesn't lose most matches because of movement, anyway, she just gifts a lot of points, mostly on serve. Just an hour or so after her atrocious singles match, she was able to be a servebot throughout most of the doubles match. This definitely looks like a mental issue and if somehow, like she says, the relationships with coaches made her this way in singles, then you can understand that she will avoid them. She was in a very good mood in the first half of last year and then it was suddenly gone. Of course, it's not very reassuring that her game is still there, because fixing your anxiety problems is probably harder than fixing your game. And having a comforting environment off-court obviously does nothing for her on court. It's getting only worse now and you can imagine the pressure she feels, given that every match matters so much at this point.
