Re: Shahar Peer's low point this week...

She's obviously not out of the top 200, but she deserves to be considering how bad her results in the last year were.
Her game was built on intensity - intense running, intense grinding and intense fighting. In 2008 she lost the grinding and still had the running and the fighting. In 2010 she got the grinding back and added a few more things to her game (with Pablo). In 2011 her ranking got to her head and she totally lost it - didn't have the running nor the grinding, only the fight. In 2012 she kept fighting and tried her best with here new coach Solomon which didn't work out too well, he took her game to the wrong places. This year, not only did she lose her fight, but she also lost her passion to win.

Shahar never had the best technique (to say the least) but always had her passion and intensity, both drove her forward and got her great success on tour. The fact is that even when some players lose their intensity they have their games to rely on (like Azarenka's case before the AO win last year), Shahar doesn't have that. When you have nothing to play tennis with, you just cannot win.

The next few weeks will be absolutely crucial for Shahar - is she going back up again or is she hanging the racquet?

Re: Shahar Peer's low point this week...

But she used to be very consistent and so ambitious.

When I see her playing like that I can't believe that she's seriously trying. Maybe she just gives 50-70 % and that's just not enough..

Well, this can't be fun for her

Re: Shahar Peer's low point this week...

its a pity we dont have a case study set of w/ue count, df, break convertion etc, especially broken by wings.

her fh always tended to crumble under pressure, especially since it was weaker on the run, moonballing back (which is why higher players did better).

her bh swing was erratic, played from way too high and used an awkwardly timed change of weight.

her on court attitude was always lousy but her fitness and fight often allowed a comeback, most notably against russian headcases.
