yes she made so many errors and dfs, sakkari was also serving well. It's still a positive tournament for her imo, she needs to find a coach now but I think she's on the right path.
Yeah it was a shit show from the start, and judging from the presser, she's fully aware of it too. But, at least Sofia handled the presser much better than she did in Australia, so all the credit in the world to her for that.One of the worst Sofia's match I have ever seen She looked like completely lost her confidence at the very start of the match. Her serve was horrible and 32 unforced errors in this short match were crazy. Big hugs to our beloved Sofia. I hope she will obtain some really good coach. Next months will be better.
Hmm.Sofia withdrew from Berlin...
Berlin is starting on Monday, but Sofia would have a BYE in her 1st round. She could play her first match on Wednesday or Thursday. She maybe needs some rest and recovery. I hope Sofia will be playing Eastbourne at least.Hmm.
Just looked at the calendar, and the tournament is suppose to start on Monday, and all in all it's probably not a bad decision. Take a few days to get over that last match if she can, maybe look at coaching candidates. Hell who knows, maybe she'll try to get into the Bad Homburg Open before Eastbourne.
I hope she plays Eastbourne. It's bad enough that grass season seems a week shorter this year, but going into Wimbledon cold would not go well I believe. I always believe grass season should be longer, there's no reason that we need such long clay and hard court seasons.Berlin is starting on Monday, but Sofia would have a BYE in her 1st round.

She had the tape on her leg, but I feel that was used more as a precautionary measure than an actual injury, seeing as she's had issues with that leg off and on for years. I've found no news the last couple days that there was an injury. The only thing I can think of is what Sofia said in the press conference clip.She's still listed for Eastbourne.
Did she pick up any slight injury in Paris, because it's unusual for her not to play a large schedule, she could just have 1 grass court match at Eastbourne if things go wrong.
I'm sure Sakkari played well, but we'll never truly know how well she would have played, had Sofia actually played well in the match. With all Sofia's UE's & DF's, Maria never had to do much other than keep the ball in play and let Sofia do the work for her. We'll never know if Sofia could have kept the match close, would Sakkari self destruct... maybe not, but it still makes me wonder what could have been.she played bad but also credit to Sakkari for serving amazing and playing overall great... the defeats in rome and paris now don't look so bad
