This thread is now mostly for between the tournaments and for the off-season and for different discussions, such as about other tennis players / tournaments .

There will be a new thread created In the Halepeño sub-forum, for every tournament Simona plays.

Not an easy draw for Simona and I hope she is ready. She needs at least a semifinal here.

Good luck!

Is because in GM many people have a herd behavior. If one or two leaders say their opinions about something, others take over the ideas and behave accordingly.

Dan's a traditionalist, having a hard time adjusting to the new thread structure on Halepeño.

Furthermore, point construction is difficult against her, because her angles are better than Simona's (again, because of the top-spin). That's why when Simona stepped back, she was the one making the UEs, not Carla.

The solution is to play aggressive. Serena-style. It's not by chance that Carla can't do anything against Serena.
The thing is, that she was aggressive, but was without error margin and making silly mistake didn't help her either with the confidence. When you make 60 UE's you can't say that she didn't play aggressive. She play as much as her body strength allow her to play. She doesn't possess the power of big girls to just overpower an lesser player especially on clay, so she has to play something between constructive/aggressive style but with error margin. She played many times, but lately she lose patience( idk why ).

There is way too many pressed people in GM. Many would have never imagined that Simona will reach that far and will stay at the top for so long, plus the so called hate towards her fan base doesn't help either.

When there are so many limited individuals in one place is hard to expect something else. GM is a place for many to free daily frustrations. In a way helps to mental stability of many limited individuals attending GM.

Nothing but hate is this forum
