80k Dothan F: [Q] K Kučová (SVK) d [6] L Davis (USA) 3-6 7-6(9) 6-2

Score of 36 76(9) 62 (forgot to include in title)

Really good week for Kristina, I don’t know where this puts her in terms of a position for RG qualies but she’s making good progress since the comeback now so that’s the most important thing

Saved a match point in second set TB

Glad to see Davis finding some good form again as well

Kucova smashed thru the 200 barrier, and has a live ranking og 196. Davis is now at 134.
I thought Kucova should have kept playing in these ITF 4 event series of $80Ks, but she is not on the list for the next 2 events.

She played so well this week. I watched every match. The match against Di Lorenzo, every single point was so intense.

She is quite likely to play WTA Prague(quali), did not know, which other slovakian player could get a WC...

She has always been a fighter, but plagued by health issues, much like Davis

Biggest title of Kristina's career What a great battle, hope she can continue to stay healthy and get her ranking back up again! This is a good kickstart in the right direction

I remember Kucova’s random run to the semis of the Canadian Open a few years back. Nice to see her win an ITF this week.

Finally a good result for Kika
She seemed to be nervous in set one and two, but the third one was a good one. I just hope she stays healthy, she really deserves some success.
Btw., will she have a chance to play FO qualification with this ranking?

Re: 80k Dothan F: [Q] K Kučová (SVK) d [6] L Davis (USA) 3-6 7-6(9) 6-2

Wonderful fight for Ms. KK, but Lauren Davis has got to be wondering where her Top 50-ness went and if she’ll ever get it back.

For anyone who has actually EVER played any level of competitive tennis, failing to nab a 2nd set match-point and THEN getting routined in the 3rd set is far more demoralizing than just getting spanked 2 and 2 by someone better on the day.

(I know because I’ve done that very same thing to a few chokers in my ~old, crickety, playing years~. For a non-choker, you never quite believe how badly someone across the net can choke until they actually do it. Even when/if they are perhaps technically or physically better in some key department.)

Lauren will puke over this one. Count on it. Getting to the final and losing like that will not, in any way, make her feel “positive.” And it shouldn’t.

Still trying to figure-out the epidemic of choke-ism that has haunted women’s tennis at all levels for so many years, diminishing the overall “product.”

It does occur in the men’s game, certainly, but not anywhere NEAR the levels seen on the women’s tour(s)—WTA and ITF.

I have a couple of theories—cultural *and* technical.

But no one wants to hear the truth. Don’t spoil the “It’s OKAY to be a non-winner [loser]!” narrative.

Women’s tennis is so doomed.

And it’s a shame, because there is so much talent and so few compelling on-court rivalries.

Tant pis.

Care to share the theories, both cultural and technical?

Davis appears to have pulled out of the 80K event in Charlottesville this week. I didn't see her name in the draw.
Kucova is not playing either, probable gone home to Europe.
