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

I have no idea what the score is I'm afraid. This livescore thing is not working at all in this tournament. Also, I quite like a bit of French in Alize's forum, I get to practice my school lessons and maybe pick up one or two new words, and of course we know she is French so we expect some French comments. I think it's better for the international fans to mix in the same thread with the French fans, we all gain something from that. So long as there are enough English comments as well those of us with limited or no French will still be able to contribute to the thread. I just get lost when the sentences are long sometimes.

I do know a little French, so it's not just pure guessing Ameliemomo, it's educated guessing . Here, I'll put something in French.

Je fais des excuses pour toutes les erreurs. J'ai étudié le français pendant trois années en Nouvelle Zélande, mais je suis un peu rouillé. Aussi, męme aprčs trois ans mon vocabulaire est petit. Le plus souvent je peux comprendre des commentaires français simples, mais s'il y a deux mots ou plus que je ne sais pas c'est difficile. Mais il est bon parce que peut-ętre j'apprendrai ces mots. Je m'arręterai maintenant parce que l'inscription en français est lente et fatiguante pour moi.

I fully understand why you might type in French without thinking. As I just experienced, it is easier to type in your native language. Of course your English (Alize Molik and Ameliemomo and really every French poster on this forum) is a lot better than my French, since I can tell you are very fluent. Anyway, to those who don't know French, I just explained that because my vocab is a bit limited (to be honest, worse than any small French child ) it can be difficult sometimes. But I still enjoy some French comments because I can learn new words. Anyway, no need to start a separate thread for French speakers. It's part of the flavour of this forum. And yes, here it is a lot better than the Spanish threads (or most of the German threads too). I don't even dare post there most of the time because I have no idea what is happening. But if enough of the posts are English then international people will be brave enough to contribute. This forum is good at making everyone feel welcome. In some other forums we feel like... we would be intruding on a private discussion. But not here .

Alize lost? Alize . I guess it was too much to hope for. The sad thing is, a year ago this would have been a horrible loss. Now it is almost... expected.

I agree with Neta.

It's sad she cannot find the winning mood back

Mon Dieu! It is sad that Alize can't seem to find her form. I am concerned she's lost her heart for tennis. Maybe she needs to take some time off and decide what she wants to do. Just a thought but does anyone know if she's having personal problems? I know from experience they can really hurt your functioning at work. I experienced that when I went through my divorce. Anyway, I hope she works through this difficult period and comes out even stronger.

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

ouhlà I tire of these poor showings against players she could have beaten before (Even if MJ is in good form, it doesn't mean she has to lose just because another player is good)

I'm just praying she pulls it together at some stage, never mind the ranking or what have you, I just want her to not suck like this forever.

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

I have been thinking about Alize's slump for a while now. I think Alize needs to rebuild the confidence in her game, she has to be able to trust her shots, to trust herself. But I think it is difficult because it is a lot like rebuilding the trust in a failed relationship. Alize has to rebuild the trust in her game.

More and more I think that drastic measures are necessary for Alize. She needs help with her confidence, no doubt, everyone realises this, maybe a sports psychologist can help. But I am also starting to feel that in order to get this confidence she needs to go away and make a significant technical change to her backhand at least, maybe also the serve. Why? Not because this is completely necessary for her game to work, she has survived with her old backhand before. But because making such a change will help to give her a reason to believe that this time, things will be different. "Last time I was in this situation I lost, but I have really changed things, so this time will not be the same." I think that now when she starts to lose she gets a sinking feeling of deja vu, like the exact same thing is happening again. So she needs to break the routine.

Of course there is another way, she could win a super tough fight in an important match (eg Fed cup) and therefore regain her belief. That is the other option.

Anyway, whatever she does, she needs to find a way to get belief in her game and in herself back.

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

oh la la Howard I totally agree with you once again!

no seriously, I was also thinking the same, especially about a technical change on her serve that I find quite "whatever". Dont know how to say in english but its only "correct",she 's not hurting with that.In fact she's hurting herself with it,especially on second serve.When she feels herself pressurind,she's making double faute behind. That is not normal. You're right she needs to break her routine to find a new breath. I know it cause amelie mauresmo was in the same tough situation, losing to players she used to beat at her best. Then she decided not to give up and retire, she changed her coach, worked on her serve and forehand,changed for a more simple technique. That worked quite well cause she won paris by beating 3 top10,thing she didnt do for 2 years!
Its very tough to get out from big struggle but if she's motivated to make changes,that can work for her to make the passion for tennis back. Get back the pleasure.That's the most important.
