Well, it's Na Li at AO, so she's probably gonna have to play her best. 4R against Julia would be such a dream, over 100 UEs and all that

A humiliating defeat in the next match against Li and that will be the end of the "great" Romanian campaign at the AO.

A defeat against Li can't be called humiliated. After all she is a slam winner and former finalist where at AO.

I think ALI3N meant a possible harsh score defeat.
But this will not be the case.

Re: Sorana in Down Under 2013 - Start of the new year

I can understand ALI3N in a general lack of spirit with most of our girls when they are on their way out.

Yes, there have already been a good amount of baking products so far this year, but we shouldn't get ourselves dragged down that easily.

Re: Sorana in Down Under 2013 - Start of the new year

Sori's draw shows just how important that top 32 seed is. The average ranking of her first two opponents was over 100. Compare that to last year where she met Stosur, Li, and Wickmayer in the first round, and Li in the second round at Wimbledon.

I hope she brings her A game today. She seems to like playing in the big arenas.

Well, that was pretty disappointing. Na was definitely not at her best, but it was enough to get an easy win against Sori.

Re: Sorana in Down Under 2013 - Start of the new year

Sorana played languidly like someone with fever: her first serve was very slow comparing with her standard and with no precision at all, her reactions were nowhere, her footwork was worse than usual. She even didn't play in ball bashing mode, most of her UE's coming from a bad hitting not for a try to hit through the opponent.

It was the Australian heat or is she seek, I don't know.

Re: Sorana in Down Under 2013 - Start of the new year

Li Na was reading Sori's first serve very well and returning it with interest. Sori should have mixed it up a bit more.

Also, when is she going to learn she needs to start playing better % tennis? She always goes for the winner DTL when pushed out wide on the FH side. She only hits the shot about 5% of the time.

Li is a very good player, and there is no shame in losing to her. However, I'm concerned Sori may have topped out. I don't see any improvement in her game from last year, nor any indication she might eventually get over the hump and become a top 10 player.
