Tough. Too inconsistent from Coco, but as CCR said, still a very positive summer.
I am glad she is back with USTA PD. To be honest, I don't think she has really grown at all in the last 18 months. Still an incredibly inconsistent serve and way to many horrible errors on rally balls. Big thing for her is going to be to get that serve to be more consistent and to improve point construction. Hope USTA PD can help her with that. I think they can with point construction for sure... that has become a huge strength of girls who go through the USTA PD system.

Co just lost 6/4 1/6 3/6 to Ali =-/ She played a brilliant 1st set anchored by goat serving. The 2nd set was just the opposite of the 1st The 3rd went pretty well until 3 all when Co got a bad call and pretty much lost it mentally =-/
Lets hope for some better ball next week in Vegas...GL!
