I'm sure Amanda wouldn't do anything like that.

She just doesn't always play well, (remember she already lost in qualies here to Kiki Mladenovic) and I don't think moving on clay is a strength for her. She's still winning though, unlikely to lose a set here. About to serve for the match. And you never know, she can lift in a heartbeat.

And she wins, far from convincing against the wildcard (700 ranked or so), 3 and 3.

Up next is Kiki Bertens, and I don't really expect Amanda to take that one on clay, Kiki is a clay queen and in very good form coming off the win in Madrid. Still, Amanda might lift to the occasion, and she definitely needs to if she wants to have a chance.

Re: KWEEN Amanda Anisimova

Take these points and nothing else. If she plays like that she will barely win a couple of games against Bertens.

Re: KWEEN Amanda Anisimova

Its odd how her form has dropped so much since moving onto the clay. Despite what she says about liking the surface its clearly not matching her game well atm. She hit the ball very flat and hard and has thr Sharapova early days movement on clay so Im much more confident about her game on hardcourt. A win is a win and she gets some points but the sooner the clay court season is over...the better for Amanda.

I see nothing's changed with you. Still asinine as usual.

I completely disagree. Look at Sharapova, Ostapenko, Li Na for example, whom you might think their games wouldn't be suited to clay, but they're all French Open champions. Nowadays, there are almost no surface specialists.

Amanda just lost a tight match to Madrid champion Kiki Bertens. She was down a set and a double-break, but found her game and competed gamely.

Re: KWEEN Amanda Anisimova

A good showing today...even tho they weren’t at their best Amanda competed well as shows she can match of with the best. Much more positive than her last few matches. Hopefully she will gain some confidence.

Re: KWEEN Amanda Anisimova

Much better performance- Amanda often seems to lift against better opponents, but wasn't quite able to get over the line today.

Re: KWEEN Amanda Anisimova

I’m glad she got in a good match pre RG. I hope she gets a decent draw.
