Looking at the press conference clip @breadstal, I'll say it again. I don't think the loss of the match bothered her as much as the way she lost it. At least to me, Sofia was thoroughly disgusted with herself with the way she played.Why though? She'd have a few days to practice and after finally getting matches wins back-to-back, she stops? Maybe that loss hit her hard...
Well that's when Sofia was at her her best. Good defense while working the angles to either get her opponents out of position for the easy winner, or the opponent makes the error.from the highlights I like how Krejikova played against Sakkari, not trying to overpower her but taking the pace off and letting sakkari make errors or be in the wrong situation
she has amazing defense on clay though, but still that's how I though Sofia would play against Sakkari instead of going for broke
yes, the annoying thing is that Sakkari is inconsistent, she could have won if playing the right away...Well that's when Sofia was at her her best. Good defense while working the angles to either get her opponents out of position for the easy winner, or the opponent makes the error.
Actually, Smile Direct Club isn't new. She was wearing their patch at the start of 2020 US Open, and now has their logo on her warm-up jacket.I think the second pic is heavily photoshopped to make her look skinnier... nice she has some more sponsors though lol
Lol wow I said that and it didn’t even occur to me that it is gone. That was a pretty cool tournament with a nice and cozy main court. Damn that sucks..Don't get me started with Mallorca being taken from the WTA. That was a nice looking tournament with good crowds.
Sorry, I never checked to see if there was any news or anything of interest(I've been working on the Sofia Trophy thread, that I think I might start the posting on Tuesday). I just checked out the stories, and I wasn't aware Sofia was still interested in soccer(or football, sorry I'm an American... LOL). I would imagine that there are plenty of grass courts there to train on, and while he's not the official coach, Wenders is Dutch.Sofia is in amsterdam guessing by her Instagram stories. Why though. Have I missed something?
There has been no notices of her pulling out of Eastbourne, so everything looks good there. As for Max Wenders, he was a former coach of Demi Schuurs. He doesn't have to be a coach to be a good contact for Sofia, so she can get into these European academies to train. So that leads me to believe that's why Sofia is in the Netherlands, is to train. Otherwise, I find it pretty random for Sofia to go to the Netherlands to watch a Dutch soccer match.Is she playing Eastbourne ? Hope to see her there.
And who is Wenders again? Thought you guys said he wasn't her coach.
