Halep has like no fucking pace and doesn't have the ability to consistently pressure Stephens. Each time I've seen Stephens play against anyone who can crack the ball, she's conceded far too much ground.

She's not comfortable being close to the baseline against bigger hitters.

As I have said before, aggressive instincts and the way a player applies their skills to a match cannot be altered majorly. Either you feel comfortable going for it or you don't.

Stephens is content to rely on her movement and footspeed when things get too competitive, and that's telling.
Cibulkova. Bye bye.

That's because Halep is a worthless pusher with no weapons, she is pretty much forced to be agressive against someone like her.

I don't know what to tell you if you don't think Sloane is a naturally defensive player, clearly you don't know anything about your own girl.

I'm sure she'll be more comfortable at being aggressive in the future but to say she isn't naturally defensive is just plain wrong.

Well, does it seem wise to play aggressive, which is the game of all bigger hitters, against big hitters?

Re: [WTA SAVED!] AO R4: Stephens d. Jovanovski 61 36 75

Her Post-match interview>>>> lmaooo too funny! I think Serena telling her to grunt more, is trying to tell her to be aggressive.

Again Sloane's only weakness creeped out on her, her focus/mentality. Someone needs to remind this girl she has fire power. She started to play defense & become shelter when Bojo started screaming louder and louder (seriously Vika & Masha grunt>>>>Bojo). She needs to learn not let the other player distract her and stay FOCUS.

I'm happy Sloane is on the map now! She started to get haters like Smitten & Jarkfish, and once you have haters you're doing something right! Good for you Sloane, welcome to the big leagues

You just acknowledged that she played the same way against Serena but made an excuse for why she did so.

I expected Sloane to win but not with this score. Oh Bojanovski, what a wasted chance.

Indeed. Don't make me dislike a potentially good and likeable player, stans!

But at least she did not play a passive. This match was like when Aga beat Masha

She needs to work on being able to switch between her aggressive and defensive games. Both are strong, but obviously today she needed to get back into aggressive mode once Bojana started finding the court. If she can find the right balance, she will make many many more slam QFs.
Basically this.
