Ostapenko was unplayable on that day. She made Rybie's shots looked like puff balls. Combined with her long match that ended late and not being 100% physically, she was never going to win. I do agree that she has to fix her serve, especially her 1st serve %.Eastbourne SF: Rybakina lt. Ostapenko 4-6 1-6
weak and disappointing performance from Rybakina, even considering she took MTO and took massage in later change ends.
Ostapenko controlled most points, hit more than 3 times winner than Rybakina, very rarely see such a match.
But this match included many close games.
Indeed Ostapenko committed more errors but hit few ones on important points (GP, BP etc.). vice versa for Rybakina.
That difference is so huge.
If Rybakina had won one of so many lost game points, this match would not have been such one sided score even if she lost.
I hoped Rybakina got some confidence from previous matches, but it's not true at least judging from this match.
appreciate she won matches in spite of being far from her best performance (except 2R match).
But, first of all, she must fix her services in Wimbledon, or will exit early.
I think Aryna is too much but this is mouthwatering match up
