Re: GOATpova returns to stay undefeated in Doha. R3 awaits

I was SUPER worried during the first set (her forehand is obviously always the litmus test of how confident she's feeling, and for the 1st set she was really doing that ugly swipe at it like she always did post-surgery up until last year), but I actually thought she improved drastically in the 2nd set (I thought Garcia was much better in the 2nd too), hitting the forehand much smoother/cleaner and serving pretty well. I agree with you guys that her movement and footwork was subpar though.

I'm not worried about Stephens tbh...I think even her best form from the AO wouldn't be good enough to get past Maria. I think she has the potential to be troublesome for Maria in the future if she can convert her raw athleticism into an actual solid counterpunching game, but as of right now, I think there's just too many holes in her game for her to beat Maria. Though I'm still not looking beyond Bartoli/Kuznetsova/Stosur in the QFs.

Golovin Her game was limited as fuck (in spite of her bizarre cult following on TF), but I'm willing to stan for her personality if she keeps paying homage to the Queen.

Re: GOATpova returns to stay undefeated in Doha. R3 awaits

Yeah I assume that means the Final won't be until Sunday either. I'm not complaining too much though cus it means if she gets that far at least I'll definitely be able to watch SF and F.
And completely agree about Sloane, she really isn't worth the hype as of yet, does absolutely NOTHING on the BH side which I'm sure Hoggy will instruct Maria to hit to and even when she's hitting her FH well she can get very passive on that side too. I'm not saying she doesn't have promise but it's really only been brief glimpses of what she can potentially do at this stage IMO.

I think I've never been so cool and relaxed during one of her matches in the last 2 years

Re: GOATpova returns to stay undefeated in Doha. R3 awaits

Did anyone notice any changes to her game/approach since Kiefer came around? It's probably too early for there to be some noticeable change, but I'm curious to see if there is in the coming weeks
