Defending champ is out.

Wow Sloane was so so so bad today. Needs a serious regroup.

I still cringe so much at those "great volleyer" and "most complete player" threads. Like, seriously

Saw only 2nd set... Sloane's volleying was just utter garbage

No telling who's gonna win Miami at this point. I'm not even a Sloane fan, and yet I'm concerned about where her head is because it's not on the tennis court right now. Not a good start to the season for her.

Just realized her record is 6-6 this year... and no hard courts again until July.

Re: Miami R3: T. Maria def. (4) Stephens 6-3, 6-2

Her attitude was fine other than being obviously frustrated from playing these types of players.

Her footwork, however, was atrocious. Sloane had about 3x as many winners but also 5x as many errors.

So frustrating to when she loses to players who arenít going on to do anything else other than lose the next round. If youíre gonna lose, at least lose to someone with a chance of winning the tourney for crying out loud.

Re: Miami R3: T. Maria def. (4) Stephens 6-3, 6-2

This was a prime example of wanting but not executing. Rinaldy said the right things. You gotta commit. You gotta move your feet. Make those small adjustment steps. Also she told Sloane to go forward but Sloane has never played great volleys and mishit a lot of them. Sloane lost due to Maria unnerving her and not moving her feet. Maria also didn't do anything wrong out there, very tough to put the ball past her.

Re: Miami R3: Maria def. Stephens 6-3, 6-2

One piss-poor match during a slump negates one's well-documented all-court gamestyle according to TF expert, Aaron.

Anyway, she deserved to lose this. Zero confidence and getting angry instead of just fixing her footwork...just compare this to her game-plan in their match in Cincy last year. She needs to get a consistent team/coach and regroup.

Re: Miami R3: T. Maria def. (4) Stephens 6-3, 6-2

I really don't understand what Sloane thinks really? If you hardly play you cannot expect yourself to be clutch at important times or get into any kind of shape. She's badly out of shape and was missing routine half court balls by miles. Has the girl even worked out a little in the last months? Losing comfortably to haddad maia, voegele and maria.

acapulco, indian wells, miami. 3 terrible tournaments really. Don't expect much from her on the clay either.

Wow! Can you imagine Maria Vs either Niculescu or Hsieh? Sloane needs a coach ASAP. She looked totally lost out there. So many seeds are out. Now I'm thinking that maybe Andreescu can do the double sunshine. I wish Simona were playing at a high level because the draw has opened so much that at this point who knows who's gonna win the whole thing.
