Re: Sofa-coaching: Match Review and Discussions 2011 Edition

on the point i kind of disagree. IMO she is now fighting with another feeling which is the one given by the whole situation + the idea that she has already done a lot on her carreer and she's soon retiring: IMO she's probably no more motivated when she's facing "nobodies" and playing little tournaments. She's possibly in the moment of her carreer when the ranking isn't meaningful and probably she's willing for a great last swan song. Something like cutting big heads or making a great run in a big tournament...that's the only explanation it comes to my mind as she played a great match against a main contender at wimbly (Marion) and showed a good mental focus against a player like Pironkova who came from wimbly QF

Her netrush is beyond terrible at the moment and that makes it easy for opponents to pass her with ease
Totally.
Some of the approach shots she's been hitting vs Polona and vs Pirokova has been dreadful (either lacking in depth or angle) and she's also missing a lot of these routine volleys that she would normally make in her sleep.

I totally have the same impression since late 2010. If it was nothing but motivation, I'd be fine with it, of course.
The observations of you and Karla about her quickness and footwork should not even be surprising. You noticed her lack of quickness already in 2010, so I guess it's a trend. IIRC her "new game", it meant that she traded quickness for pace of shots, because she didn't want to run so much anymore.

Only a psychiatrist could analyze this.

@ depressive Flavia
my professor at university gave us a beautiful precept:

"the neurologist is who knows very much, but nothing can do
the psychiatrist is who knows a little bit, but everything can do
the psychologist is who knows nothing, and nothing can do"

so your advice is perfect!

Re: Sofa-coaching: Match Review and Discussions 2011 Edition

i think someone already said this...and in between of this mess it's probably the most plausible solution:
flavia's injury is worse than she wanted to tell but she knows she's can undergo a surgery if she wants to play olympics bofore calling it a carreer.
i think this is the most reasonable solution to that slump because the 2 shots which really are troubling her are FH and most of all the service. she hit 18 DF in two matches in toronto and as far as i remember she has never had so many DF with just 2 aces
supposissions obviously not that if we really know what's wrong, things will change
