Re: Laura hits the red dirt - Clay Season Cheering Thread

I'm pleasantly surprised Laura has chosen to remain in the draw for Katowice, had a feeling she may have pulled out.
Best not to dwell on the Bouchard match and get as much practice on the clay against good standard of players.
Seeded 8th so hoping the draw will be kind, she may be trying to get as many points as possible to be seeded for Wimbledon, however this is only going to be possible if she learns how to serve again.

Re: Laura hits the red dirt - Clay Season Cheering Thread

As I said in her main cheering thread, I can't see her winning the first round. LDL is good on clay, and Laura is in dreadful form.

Re: Laura hits the red dirt - Clay Season Cheering Thread

My expectations are rock bottom for this one Laura was in good form for their last meeting and look how that ended, on hardcourts too.

Re: Laura hits the red dirt - Clay Season Cheering Thread

I think i'm the only one that thinks facing LDL on Clay is a good thing, gives Laura time to set up for those moonballs unlike hardcourts.

Re: Laura hits the red dirt - Clay Season Cheering Thread

God..I'm not optimistic but hopefully she can prove us all wrong..right? Match is not before 6pm GMT, last match on centre. So annoying it's not on eurosport though perhaps that's a good thing on recent form and there might be a stream out there somewhere. C'mon Laura.

Re: Laura hits the red dirt - Clay Season Cheering Thread

Guys, I just had a thought. You know Laura's serve? Maybe she'll feel confident tonight because of it being an indoor event there will be nothing to disrupt it? Just a thought.

I was just thinking the exact same thing. Sometimes I think half the battle with her serve is becuase of the elements. With these non-existant, it might swing in Laura's favour allowing her serve and shots to fly through the court.

However... if she cant get good stats on her serve, i can see LDL moonballing her to death.

Exactly. Although it is Clay so maybe Laura will have more time to position herself for the moonballs?
