Re: Cheering Thread: Australian Swing

Gotta love Sara on clay. So natural (assuming this is her first week on clay since Bastad?).


And, a plus side of being a Nike-girl? They get country colours for Fed Cup. I love it.

Re: Cheering Thread: Australian Swing

Hey all

I guess today's loss to Lepchenko in singles is more like a mental issue than that Sara lost her abilities to perform well on clay.

She is now #1 in Italian Fedcup team (after probably Franny and Flavia resigned from that rank) and this brings more responsibility and puts much pressure.

So this is not ordinary WTA tour encounter, you perform for you country...

... all of sudden it's 1-1 and everybody expects you to bring your team back to the lead but...

...Lepchenko hits everything in the court, Sara struggles to get key points, serves for the set at 5*4 from 24 15-40* down... however it all ends with 5-7.

Then IMO Sara mentally exploded, lost her head, went for desperate shots, lost most of variety.

Thus it went to downspiral 2-6 despite normally Sara is a fighter.

All she has to now is to rely on Roberta in singles, then hit a winner in doubles.

P.s. Also Mr. Barazzutti may have given her some hints if he figured out Sara had been completely falling apart in mental aspect.

Re: Cheering Thread: Australian Swing

They are really good in doubles, absolutely impressive!! I am glad they managed to win the tie, after Sara's defeat and 1-1 in the fourth match it looked scary....

Re: Cheering Thread: Australian Swing

About the single loss, I think it was a mental issue: I totally agree with Minotaur indeed; the pressure to be the #1 in the team and the responsibility to win after the 1-1. I think Sara was worried about Robi's physical conditions too, and she felt forced to win to not cause her too much stress. She seemed so tense.. And I think the captain didn't help her properly: nobody can motivate and encourage her like Pablo! In this situation her game disappeared.. where was her forehand? This is my poor opinion.
Anyway, she must get used to the pressure: there will be much more of it in the next few months.. C'mon, Sara you have to cope with that! I hope Pablo (and Robi too) could really help her.. She needs confidence.

Lovely pictures!!
And GRANDE ITALIA of course!!

Re: Cheering Thread: Australian Swing

Very solid win against Timea Babos 6/4 6/0

Now it will be Hantuchova (probably) or Bychkova (hopefully )
