Ugh. 2-10 in the MTB? I suppose Barty & Dellacqua are the more successful doubles team, but can't imagine Julia's happy with that performance even though it didn't matter. Sigh.
she did get better after those atrocious first few games and got to her usual, still mediocre, doubles level
I came across this phrase the other day referring to basketball teams that languish year after year, not winning enough to make it to playoffs and not losing enough in order to be eligible for top draft picks: the teams are said to be on the "treadmill of mediocrity".
Treadmill of mediocrity. I fear this is where Julia will be stuck.
