Sloane: "It's really tough week in and week out playing perfect tennis"

Sloane

Needs to relax and start playing tennis again.

Quote:
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Sloane Stephens lost in the first round of the Dubai Championship on Monday, the latest setback for the rising American star who reached the Australian Open semifinals.
Stephens, who has reached a career high 16th in the rankings since knocking out Serena Williams in Melbourne, lost to Sorana Cirstea of Romania 5-7, 6-3, 6-2.

"It was a rough day, and I think she obviously played some good tennis," Stephens said. "Every match isn't going to go the way you want it, and obviously I got a little frustrated. Things happen, but, I mean, no need to dwell on it."

Some of her recent woes can be blamed on health problems. She pulled out of the Fed Cup against Italy this month after aggravating an abdominal muscle injury and picking up a stomach virus.

Still, Stephens said little has changed from Australia and she hasn't let all the hype get the best of her.

"Obviously it's really tough week in and week out playing perfect tennis and just really being able to execute," Stephens said. "Some days you're going to be on the court and it's not just going to turn out the way you want. Like today, I didn't play my best tennis, and last week I didn't play my best tennis, but you just kind of got to move on."
The 18-year-old Putintseva broke into the top 100 just this month. Down 5-2 in the third set, the 43rd-ranked Robson rallied to force a tiebreaker, but Putintseva finally clinched the victory when Robson hit a return wide.
"I think in general it was a frustrating match," Robson said. "It was just annoying for me, because I feel like I have been practicing a little bit better this week, and to come out on court and just feel very, very defensive the majority of the match is really disappointing."

The bolded statement is true. But the best players find a way to win when they're not playing their best.

When did or was she playing "perfect tennis"? perfection gets you titles. She needs a rep handling her interviews. Oh wait, that would mean she professionally has taken the next step....nevermind.

She must have been referring to Steffi Graf.

Yes, it is tough for the top players to play perfect tennis week in and week out, Sloane. Explains some of your wins.
