Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

Kiki/Nestor lost to Shvedova/Soares. It sounds surprisingly but it's good because she can play qualifying of WTA Birmingham and prepare to this tournament. She should earned some good points on grass. She can do it. Allez!

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

All that optimism She played a really bad first match last year. I don't think it's gonna be different now. Just the next flop I think winning another title in mixed would have been the much better option. If I'm wrong, all the better, I wish I am, but I'm probably not.

That Soares is a mean one. IIRC, she had trouble returning his serve in the Wimby final, which you don't see very often

You're all sounding like améliemomo all of a sudden Skoo, just when she's having her best result of the year. Weird.

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

I got my hopes up and, of course, I was gutted afterwards. She won the third set against Riske after a little injury and it was also the first time she won two matches in a row this season. I thought maybe she got over a psychological obstacle after that and she's gonna be more consistent in the next round. And what does she do? 37% first serves in the first set, that's what

Plus, the victory over Na Li was not convincing. It was the same kind of match she loses "over details", only that now she won it. What if this detail, on set point for Na Li, would have gone in?



Yes, probably a straight sets loss. Muguruza caught Serena on a bad day and she had a convincing win over her and got to QF. Had Kiki done that, too, and it was surely possible, one would have a reason to be optimistic. As it is, nothing really changed. Sure, it's good that she will be back in top 100 (for at least a week) with these wins, but not much else to be glad about.

Oh, and had she lost with that score to a well-playing Petko, I would have also been happy. As you said, she showed she's got much more game than her, but she just had to play worse... kind of typical.

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

She needs more luck on her serve than with the draw. And now, without the atmosphere and a tough opponent, she's probably gonna be back to uninterested snail mode. But, yeah, I'm pretty confident she's gonna win at least one match. I'm not so convinced it won't take over two hours Her most convincing win this season was over Zhang, so maybe two. Well, surprise us!

Not a poor serve, just a poor ball toss.

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

So that implies that she's lucky to hit the ball in court, given how bad her toss is, right?

Not lucky... gifted... in a particular way! (same as Ana). Toss ain't a matter of luck either, though.

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

I love that description, skoo, uninterested snail mode. Sums up her mindset in quite a few matches, it's as if she can't summon the energy to do more than go through the motions. Monfils is similar in that way, he needs the crowd, atmosphere to help pump himself up, and he randomly loses energy in the middle of a match. Maybe they have underlying energy or health issues, or maybe it's just mental. Wonder if she will fix it sometime?

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

The last time I saw her with that attitude was in Oeiras, and she was after six hours of qualies there. Maybe she already got rid of that attitude, but you can't tell right now, because she has only played two other MD matches besides RG.

I suppose that if after your apparent breakthrough, you start losing close matches left and right, you might get that attitude. It would be called learned helplessness. In interviews, she's overconfident, but that doesn't show on court. Even at RG, you could see how tense she was. But, of course, there might be some health/fitness issues. She barely got through her second match. Also, she was visibly leaner last year.

No way to know for sure what's going on, as you probably already implied. But she can allow herself to have that attitude from time to time if she can get some consistent performances otherwise. No sign of improvement in that department, unfortunately.
