Arantxa is playing Q for Rosmalen with a WC Don't really get this strategy, because if she does too well here she can't play Q for Wimbledon. So I don't know if I want her to do well here
Today she did beat Shahar Peer 64 62, which is a very good win obviously
She is playing Q with a WC which is a bit strange I guess. Seems like a really late decision to play here. Otherwise she probably would have got a MDWC and they would make sure to schedule her MD 1st round on Sunday and a potential R2 on Monday because of Wimbledon Q which starts on Tuesday.
Guess she just wanted to train and try and play a couple of matches here. But a nice win yesterday
Glushko up next.
Aran's match is on stream at the moment, trailing 46 22*. I've been watching the last 3 games and she actually isn't playing that bad. Good serving in particular. Glushko is really solid though, hitting very little errors.
She hasn't improved anything in like 3,4 years. She has no game plan, her forehand is going 80% diagonal, and her backhand is always going in the middle of the court. Sometimes she has to play more aggressive and to step up a little bit, but I know it's hard with no confidence. Too bad but she is wasting her time, she needs to change something.
Good luck to Aran tomorrow. I'm a bit disappointed because I'm going down to London on Sunday for a couple of months and, if I'd gone down a week earlier, I would have gone along to the qualifying. Still, I hope she can win
