Re: WTA Championships 2012 iStanbul Mission: Win the title by not facing Rena/Vika

I think she has a gameplan vs. Vika, she just never executes it. But when she does she bosses. I just want the off-season and all the improvements that come with it to happen tbh.

Re: WTA Championships 2012 iStanbul Mission: Win the title by not facing Rena/Vika

The one thing I have a MAJOR issue with is that Joyce was always talking about moving forwards and ending the points on the swinging volley but under Thomas I feel there's been a real decline in that area.

Re: WTA Championships 2012 iStanbul Mission: Win the title by not facing Rena/Vika

The good thing about this YEC is that it'll be indoors and she seems to play well indoors. She played some of her best tennis this year at Stuttgart.

Plus she did get her last win against Vika indoors so if they do play each other here, which I think Maria will have to do to win it, that should give her some confidence hopefully.

Re: WTA Championships 2012 iStanbul Mission: Win the title by not facing Rena/Vika

I like that Thomas has introduced more margin for the benefit of Claypova's emergence. But I take issue in Maria playing too conservatively on hardcourts and carrying that form over, where she can't defend as well, and doesn't have the luxury of time as with clay. Once she realised the superior players will not tolerate her topspin up the middle of the court shots, she'll go into her frantic maniac ballbashing mode again.

It would be in the tradition of what's happened this year:

-Maria and Petra always together
-Vika gets a cakewalk
-Radwanska vultures her way to another big SF

So true! Moreover, there's no net game. She doesn't attack the net anymore. She just plants her feet on the baseline and stays there. One more thing: after every serve she lands two metres inside the baseline.. how can you possibly hit Vika's deep ROS back if it always gets past you?

Agree! Drive volley used to be one of Maria's best assets and now she barely uses it, and when she does it's a disaster

That's exactly what I think, and I also think that Thomas is prepared enough to see that and after all the work they put in to win on clay, they will do the same thing about hardcourts for 2013, at least I hope so.

And I wanted to make an YEC thread titled "From Russia with Love" like the 007 movie where they are in Istanbul...
