Sloane needs to turn the agression up a couple of notches!

I always feel she is more comfortable with her opponent dictating and counterpunching. I can understand why Kim is her idol.

Re: Sloan needs to turn the agression up a couple of notches!



She does need to turn on the aggression, but especially on clay. I feel that with her shots and her athleticism she should excel on this surface. She WOULD too, but only if she actually played attacking-tennis like in Brisbane or the Australian Open

I wonder if is that's in response to her coaching, she hits plenty of winners, but most are on the run.

Re: Sloan needs to turn the agression up a couple of notches!

Sadly she doesn't have Kim's game. So if she tries to play like her, she'll end up as a pusher.

It's hard to dictate play with a weaksauce backhand though.

Re: Sloane needs to turn the agression up a couple of notches!

She has a lot of aggression and passive aggression off the court. If only she redirects that energy into on-court play.

Re: Sloane needs to turn the agression up a couple of notches!

Sloane can be only aggressive from one wing, but she should indeed use it as much as possible like Stosur does.

She's damn near a "pusher" now.

Sadly, she's allowed the USTA's desire to move the game away from big, aggressive tennis effect her. That's what coming up in that antiquated system does. She let her head get filled with some

What she's gonna discover is that as soon as those who have been filling her head get the first whiff that Sloane isn't "the one," she will be abandoned by those same people and left to ponder "if only."

I like her game but just wish she would go for it a bit more, she has all the shots her forehand is excellent and the backhand is not that bad. Madison will surpass her if she does not.

Re: Sloane needs to turn the agression up a couple of notches!

She almost has no intensity, it's very concerning for a young player. That's why she gets into long 3-setters alot.

I think she is trying to stay calm. She serves sometimes 90 percent rather for it to be 65-70 percent with big serves winning points.

I don't think she does. That backhand is a mess. The prescription for beating her is simply: pound the backhand, get the short ball, put it away. The resulting pressure to deliver on her forehand will produce errors, then... she starts pushing. That's why she got pounded against Maria. And honestly, Maria didn't even have to work that hard.

I MUCH prefer Madison Keyes game. But she has other issues.

As it is, Sloane is on more of a Megan Shaunessy(sp) path than an elite path.

Re: Sloane needs to turn the agression up a couple of notches!

Pretty high quality match. To Sloane's credit, she really has been hanging tough in this match. Pironkova has been playing some good tennis and hitting some ridiculous angles. Sloane could have tanked by now, but she hasnt. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

YES she has but Pironkova has been the agressor. I would like to see bigger serves and the attacking of more lines from Sloane.
