Yes Tea, that picture says it all. That was during the second set wasn't it, at about 0-3? She already knew it was over.

Yea Howard, it was in the middle of the 2nd set. Peer was good today, no doubt, but Alize could have tried to resist at least, what she didn't, what she don't wanted to. Is this that girl who was known as a fighter some time ago?

Re: Alize back to "BASICS" trying to get her rythme back on clay

I think Alize still fights, but she spends a lot of energy fighting herself now, so she has less energy left over to fight her opponent. She needs to be her own supporter, not her own enemy. She just needs more positive emotions. Tactically, I think she needs to learn to be more aggressive again. I also think something needs to be done about her bh, which just has no control or spin now and cannot defend without losing control. Serve needs work too. But most important is her mind.

Oh dear! Alize, where has your confidence gone? She is really struggling with the mental part of her game, isn't she? So sad for her.

Re: Alize back to "BASICS" trying to get her rythme back on clay

I never thought she would be having results like this after the AO. I don't know what she should do to find her rhythm again.... even smaller tournaments?

Alizé This will be very hard for her. The next months will be hard, hopefully she can find enough positive energy to fight back

Re: Alize back to "BASICS" trying to get her rythme back on clay

Cant say what will get her out of this crappy thing she's living it. Its all in her mind I think.
What the hell did she was thinking?that she'll go there against peer and that she didnt need to fight on EACH POINT!
I still think she forgot all her basics and today she clearly showed that. She's nowhere right now, in the shadow.
Yes Erik, I think she must play smaller tournament and go to learn from the girls who play that kind of tournaments, how to fight cause you dont have choice.
With this early loss she'll lose many points, dont know if she'll stay top30. That must be horrible seing your ranking drop every week whereas last year at that time you was only winning and winning but every loss is just too much. The fact is that I dont know if she'll ever find the solution to this horrible slump.

Dont know what to say cause there's no precise solution for her.Will she ever come back to her best level by playing smaller tournaments? perhaps yes BUT perhaps no. We just cant know it.
Its all about alize and her mind. Lets keep patient and hope she'll find a way to get back where she was but it could take long. You have to be prepared for that eventuality.It could take more weeks, months or even we have to look for next year.That's a serious thing she's experiencing now.

She still needs big support especially now so ALLEZ Alize!you have to be strong and courageous!

Thanks for the precisions. I couldnt watch the match and I m asking how a "non powerful" player like Peer could "attack" that much alize on a ver slow surface like clay??I already watched peer matchs and reading your report I m just surprized how much she appeared so a threat to alize
you know what I mean? alize must appear to her opponents as a poor hurted animal without any defense.

Poor alize, her lack of confidence is sooooo obvious,she really needs to work on her attitude. I m disappointed cause yesterday she seemed "in control" but somewhat I knew Peer will be the big test.

Poor alize, her lack of confidence is sooooo obvious,she really needs to work on her attitude. I m disappointed cause yesterday she seemed "in control" but somewhat I knew Peer will be the big test.
In the first set, after Shahar got to 5-0, Alize won two games. Shahar called her coach then, she seemed worried that Alize might come back. Her coach told her not to worry, if she attacked Alize she would definitely win. "Just press her, press her, trust me you'll get her", or something like that. It seems that many of the coaches and players know that if they press Alize now she will succumb.

I've never seen Shahar attacking so much, she is normally just a consistent player without a great deal of power. But Alize was constantly well behind the baseline retrieving. Many times Shahar hit a hard shot to her backhand and Alize lost control. I don't remember many points dominated by Alize. Her serve was being attacked a lot, quite a few winners on the return of serve. The commentator was saying that Shahar had clearly come out with a gameplan to be aggressive. I'm not sure if Shahar has increased her power or if it was just an illusion caused by the way the match was going, but it certainly looked as if Shahar was the more powerful player.
