Her ranking fell down to 729 (
), but now it's at 715 so she's (barely) working her way up again I guess
R1 d. Claudia Coppola ITA (#1066) 6-4 6-2
R2 l. to (6) Ksenia Palkina KGZ (#533) 6-3 5-7 6-7(6)
She always loses with crazy scorelines. I don't even want to know how many times this year she's lost after having MP
Her TB record this year is an atrocious 0-9, absolutely horrible
What's even worse is that the least amount of points she's won in a TB this year was 4. So all of her TBs were really close and she still can't win them. It's one thing to lose all your TBs 7-0 and 7-1. But she is losing hers mostly 7-5, 8-6, 10-8, etc.
Also this was the second time she lost a third set TB in the past two months, that says a lot about her mental game
The good thing is that it shows her potential and that her game isn't off, but mentally she is just all over the place these days
