Re: Sofya Zhuk

Sofya ends the season on 117 WTA ranking. That is her personal high and quite astonishing concerning all the matches I was biting nails. Congrats! Really more than I expected.

Re: Sofya Zhuk

Your nick refers to Michail Bulgakows "Hundeherz" (german title)?

Yes, that's the original title of his book My German is super rudimentary, but I did recognise the Hunde word

I will try and get a copy, turning a dog human is crazy enough, apart from being a caustic criticism, thanks for the hint.

Re: Sofya Zhuk

I saw the Fett Match, better not talk about. But today, even Sofya lost 3:6, 3:6, showed how she would like to play, and that is promising.
She has ideas, she can do the shots, she can take control (sometimes) but errors way too often. Will she take a step, I think she's willing.
Lots of hours on court, hard work. Too risky today or not cool enough, but fun to watch.

Exactly what I thought. Showed the raw talent or willingness to play the way she has to but too many errors against a veteran so to speak who relies on being steady.

Re: Sofya Zhuk

Yeah!!! I been watching parts of all 3 Matches, and seeing the joy after todays win is priceless. I can't see she has a real chance against Laura but I can't wait watching this. Been following Laura for many years and this match can tell where Sofya is by now. If Sofya can avoid silly mistakes and hold serve and Laura catches a bad mood, well - who knows - it's tennis. Great matchup

Re: Sofya Zhuk

No shame losing against Laura, but someone could have told her that dropshots are to expected - that worked just a little too well for Laura.
If I was Sofya, I would work on serve and staying focused, the groundstrokes are pretty nice, back in the 150s, she has to improve if she
wants to climb from there. Thank you ladies, it's been a pleasure!
