Ana Ivanovic does it. If Sloane has good footwork, she could always run around the backhand

She looks as really bad pusher on clay. Compare to her Sara looks like brainless ballbasher.

Bad the way she was telling story, it did not seem like she was going to follow thru.
She is just comfortable in a passive position, female Monfils w/o the colorful plays

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

Does anyone know why she didn't play any of the clay MM tournaments? Could have helped her a lot after all the losing...

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

I don't know if people can become more aggressive, or not, but she can definitely work on her point construction. She's a great athlete, but a lot of her retrieving has no plan behind it. She has to work on using her retrieving to move her opponent, and open up the court. Doing that doesn't require a killer attitude, but would give her the space to hit her winners.

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

Everyone knows I have no love lost for this girl. A good part of that stems from the fact that she carries on like she is auditioning for a Real Housewives show. She seems more focused on causing drama than she is on working on her tennis. I mean she seems so passive on court, but comes alive come interview/talk shit time...maybe she could get some more fire if a reporter comes on court to interview her while she she is playing.

I've noticed that too. I wish she would focus more on having a personality on the court. It never looks as if she's having fun out there (even when she's winning) and when she's down its like she doesn't even care unless its a Grand Slam. Pironkova will take her out tomorrow if she doesn't get it together quickly.

She absolutely looked very good at Roland Garros last year. I caught all of her matches except for the one against Stosur. She should be on track to defend those points but I don't feel that is the case at all at this point.

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.

ummmm - no.

Meg was injured in her shoulder just prior entering top10. her serve did ALOT of damage and she hit alot of aces.
she's beaten both WS, Henin, Seles, and other top5 players.


she was very injury prone, and a bit streaky at times - but she was part of one of the strongest top20 eras in WTA.

Sloane? she's high up in a slot of time that 3 players hold all the points.

I wasn't trying to take anything away from MS. She was rock solid, but not "Elite" no matter how many big take downs she had. The point I was trying to make, though clearly not very well, was that right now Sloanes career trajectory is that of MS success v/s "Elite" success.

btw, I don't think Megan ever cracked the top 10 did she? I remember her being very close, but I thought her career high was in the low teens. I could be wrong though and am too lazy to look it up.

I think that's a good idea for Sloane, though at this point I'd entertain almost anything. She certainly has the speed to get back over and cover the deuce court, but ratbh would require her to step into a more aggressive mindset. I beginning to think she's not capable of tha - to afraid to take a chance.
