Dismal match from Sprem. Just boatloads of errors at the biggest moments, netting return after return. Not promising at all. Just really, really bad. Of course there were flashes of brilliance here and there, but she's too retarded with her shot selection to make up for those errors. And her serve is crap now, too.

Congrats to Knapp (even though she was far from impressive herself)

The thing with Karolina is I suspect she will go to the lockerroom and tell herself if she didn't make so many errors she would have won. And perhaps against Knapp the way Knapp was playing she might have but the way Karolina is playing right now will not produce many decent wins at all even if she does cut out alot of the errors. She really does need to completely revamp her game. Trying to blast every ball even when you are out of position just doesn't win matches.

It is a good thing that Karolina can hit the ball hard. Sometimes that can be very useful. But she needs to hit with a variety of paces and angles and to maneuver her opponent around until she has a clear opening. Then and only then can she rip it. Ofcourse that would take some patience and thinking and discipline and it looks for all the world like she really can't be bothered with any of those things.

She is not moving well either. Someone like Venus Williams who plays a somewhat similar game can get away with it because Venus is much much faster than Karolina is at the moment. Venus is also able to string 5 or 6 shots together in a rally quite often. Sprem seems a nice girl and she is certainly attractive and she obviously has proven she has some ability but I have to say that what I saw there was as ugly as tennis can get.

Awful result for Sprem! :sad:
There is something wrong with her training methods methinks! She's obviously playing agressive tennis, going for winners all the time, hitting as hard as she can. That should be enough to beat players like Knapp even without plan B. :shrug:
She should realy work on her consistency so that the ratio of winners to UEs improves, also if she's trying to hit winners all the time, she needs one shot she can always rely on!
I could write hundreds of pages about what she should do, I see so much promise in her game and so far it's for nothing!
She always loses to players she should beat so I think it's better for Sprem when she has tougher draw! :p

I completely agree. It's sad to see someone as her slumping that much.
The first few games were good though. :lol:
