Re: Paszek 2013!

There was some good moment for Mimi during that match.

Ball toss was modified but still need practice. Flat first serv is better than before when its in.

Re: Paszek 2013!

Mimi

Apart from the Hantuchova match there are some positive signs. She just needs to turn these close matches into victories to give her confidence a boost.

Dropping down to ITF will really do her good.

Re: Paszek 2013!

There's clearly something psychological going on with her--depression or something in her personal life maybe. She's a much better player than what she's shown on the court this year. You don't go from winning a premiere and QF in a slam to this without some concrete reason. I just hope she can get a little bit of confidence in herself and her ability again, find some form, and start re-building herself. She's much better than this.

Re: Paszek 2013!

I just saw something interesting. There is a new ITF being added to the USTA Pro Circuit calendar this November the week of November 3-10 at Captiva Island, Florida. It is to be held at the South Seas Island Tennis Resort, which is home to the (Andrei) Pavel Blackwood Tennis Academy:

http://www.florida.usta.com/news/flo...r_workshop111/


I wonder if Tamira will elect to play there, since it would basically be a "home" tournament for her (I think she trains in Florida). at the end of the year when nothing else is going on, and it would be a chance for her to get some confidence going again.

I am seriously thinking of going to this tournament--would love to see her play there.

I guess there could be many reasons why she's not winning matches. Professional sport is brutal, and the margin between success and failure is very small. She doesn't have to be depressed to explain this slump. Writing on her Twitter, she gives the impression of being quite happy with life..

Of course, it's hard to draw conclusions from how people present their lives on social media, since most people only post good things.

Anyway, I totally agree that she's much too good to be getting double bagelled by Hantuchova. But I agree with Wonderwall also; when you've lost nearly all matches during a season, every win is an encouraging sign, and many of her recent losses were close matches. If she can find whatever is missing, things could turn around very quickly, I think.

I'm just speculating, of course, but as you said, sports athletes usually don't write negative or depressing things on their twitter accounts. With few outrageous exceptions, it's not supposed to be a vent for stuff like that.

It's part of an athlete's job to have an ego that's somewhat in denial. Serena Williams is the supreme example of this in women's tennis. She will make up any excuse in the book as a reason for why she did not play well in a match, to avoid facing the reality that her opponent played better. Players will always make public statements limiting the damage, minimizing the negative and maximizing the positives, any time they lose. They have to, otherwise, what would be the motivation to continue playing? Even though her record is 2 and whatever, Tamira is going to find positives when she plays a tight three setter, because it's better than usual. That doesn't mean it's great, though.

But as for Tamira, at this point, the self-belief on the court doesn't look like it is there. Where it came from, where it has gone, where she can get more of it, those are the questions she has to find answers to, because right now, she looks like she is doubting herself on the court. Many times, self doubt and lack of confidence relates to self-esteem. When people are feeling happy and secure in their lives, they tend to doubt themselves and what they are doing a lot less. Maybe I have no clue what I am talking about in her case, but in general, it usually works out that way.

Now that her ranking is low, I hope she comes to the USTA Pro Circuit next winter/spring and plays some events here, until she can bump her ranking up. I'd definitely go see her play and cheer her if she came to the Florida events.

I thought Mimi might start exiting her slump soon, but it doesn't seem likely
