Re: Ana Konjuh

Well, I guess we're not all created equal - many players would probably collapse if they had to play a 5 hour match, but some (Nadal, Djokovic etc.) managed to do it when necessary, even after playing long matches in previous rounds. I remember Vekic playing in long streaks back in juniors, but Ana might not be that high on stamina, who knows. Playing styles probably make a difference here too.

Re: Ana Konjuh

*1:4 *15:15, i did not see this one coming after that 2nd set. Bencic also in deep doo-doo 2:6 0:2 (but at least she plays against a serious player)

Re: Ana Konjuh

1:6, colossal failure, no other words for this. How would i not become an optimist after all these brilliant wins lately.

Re: Ana Konjuh

I really hope she doesn't continue this tendency to overplay as a pro. Or is it too much winning? Regardless, she should scale back her schedule to anticipate that she will play a lot of matches by winning. Don't underestimate yourself, Ana.

Re: Ana Konjuh

Tough lost for Ana I thought she would be able too win after the second set but still a QF is good results, anyone knows where she playing next ?

For this statement to be true i'd have to admit Ana is not a big talent, and i'm still not ready to do that (although i'm getting mostly disappointments in return lately (especially in juniors)) (frankly Friedsam and Khromacheva were the only positive surprises as i see it, all other wins were for me more or less expected)) . Didn't you write the same thing for Siniakova ? Although a QF can be a good result, losing to Kennel or Mertens isn't no matter how you look at it.

Lost in doubles also as expected.

Another walk in a park for Belinda coming up, i'm getting tired of this.

Why you are so strict to Ana? Come on, she is not perfect! She is human after all. But CHILD! Where oscillations are more often than with older people. + She has injury. Maybe at some days it hurts her more and sometimes less. There can be zillion reasons of playing bad at some day. Also, Donna who has never achieved anything similar like Ana in juniors was telling she lost motivation when she started to compete in seniors. And Ana is already better than her in seniors in same age. But Ana was NUMBER 1 and HAS GRAND SLAM TITLE (for Donna was best result QF of grand slam at juniors)! And is better in seniors so far too! So...maybe she just lost motivation for this tournament and that is it.

can't see Ana lost motivation, there has to be something else. What's the point of playing if you don't want to, it's not like she's getting money for juniors (especially as she plays doubles also). Sure there are a zillion reasons for playing badly on a day, but (judging unfortunately mostly from the scores and not live streams) it looks to me she has a lot of those (still 'cause of her superior potential and a great fighting spirit she mostly comes on top, but that still doesn't make it a good play). Of course she's a child but she's playing other children who some time ago wouldn't stand a chance, and now she's losing and we're talking bagles and breadsticks here. Probably i massively overestimated her and that's why it looks i'm strict (frankly the only loss i expected this year were against Radwanska sisters and Polona). If i didn't see such a huge potential i wouldn't be so disappointed every time (that's why i'm not so upset when Donna loses, i don't have such a big expectations there). And what's up with her serve it should be a decent weapon from what i've seen and it looks more like a liability lately, she's losing her serve easily left and right. If it's the injury than stop playing and fix it, but as it looks that there'll be no surgery i'll have to assume the injury is no longer an issue.

Re: Ana Konjuh

Mertens took a set and than took home a breadstick and a bagle as a present from Kennel, that's how good she is.

All Swiss finale.
