^ it's probably a good thing that there hasn't been any news on that lawsuit as Genie said from the R2 match that after she first recognized Wayne Gretzky in her players box she lost the next game! Must have been the game with a couple of DF's, lol.

Timea is the kind of player that can give Genie troubles. The Swiss can hold in rallies much better than the Canadian and Timea's craftiness is like Aga's at times.
I'd say Timea is the favorite, unless she still struggles with her form. But her quick disposal of Pironkova seems to indicate she's back to her good form of 2015. Genie has a chance if she serves better and keeps the UE bellow 20. I hope most of her winners attempts will fall in.

Every time she returns serve to Timea's BH there's a good angle that sets up Timea's point. When she returns to the FH Timea only floats one or makes an error. Come on girl go to the FH more.

You have to be brainless to target Timea's backhand 80% of the time. Inexplicable strategy.

She's playing top 30 tennis in general but her game is too predictable and isn't cutting it against anyone showcasing a bit of variety, pushers and anyone hitting harder than her in decent form.

Re: Genie's 2016 - February & March - KL, Indian Wells & Miami

I think people are being really hard on her and it's the last thing she needs; pressure and expectations from fans and media.

Just making it to the 3rd round and defending most of her IW points + scoring her biggest win of the season against a top 30 player is still a great pathway to recovery.

Nothing to defend but 10 points in Miami so she can only go up from there. The crucial thing, just like after KL is to not let the loss sink her game or confidence. She has a week to prepare for Miami. Seeing she was playing so much, maybe it's a blessing in disguise. She'll be fresh for it.

Aside from not being a very good front-runner when she gets up a break I'd say she's close to late 2013 level.

I agree that she's pretty brainless tactically right now. That wasn't smart tennis tonight. I thought she was pretty smart against Sloane, not giving her FHs to hit if the rally was neutral. But then it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what you need to do against Sloane and she knows her game inside and out.
