She didn't become mentally fragile. She has ever been. Underarm second serve on MP against Simona in Bucharest - how mashed does your mind have to be to come up with this?
Alexandra really folds under pressure, also the amount of DFs, half of them are on GP or BP. It's insane.

The last time she won a match in a prolonged final set was against Bychkova in Tashkent two years ago (where she already led by 5-2), before that she was able to grind down Arn and Dokic in Monterrey.

Moreover, she is 1-7 in TBs on the WTA (Qualies included) since last year with her only TB won against Klaffner in Linz.

But even if we look past these obvious mental situations within a tennis match, there are a lot of sets of tennis she is just giving away. She had 2 BPs at 4-4 in the first set yesterday, couldn't convert and got broken. She had some crucial BPs against Shvedova in Florianopolis that could have switched the momentum where she couldn't even get a return in etc.

If she wins a set or match, then she was the better player, if it's an even match she will lose.

Thanks for posting. I really love the pic in the middle of the bottom row.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

I really don't buy the Wickmayer is back story. She played one good event in Doha which was more like bumping into players that sucked even more that day, but apart from that her results this year were average at best.

At this point we still have to hope, though, that she will self-implode or otherwise Alexandra's decision not to go to Bogota instead will turn out costly.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Yanina might not be back, but peak Alexandra is yet to come in 2014 (the matches against Ce and Pfizenmaier don't count, obviously). She needs a big miracle or fewer smaller miracles to win this. But good luck!

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Her backhand is a disaster.

Serve holding up nicely, though.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Needless to say that Wickmayer herself is still lightyears away from her best. She is quite beatable today, to be honest.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Is Wickmayer tanking or does she really suck that much now?

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Alexandra is attacking Yanina's second serve in Sorana's style ( 2 in net,1 in court )
