How disappointing for Evie. I don't understand what is going on with her. Look at how well she played against Venus at the FO, then she is losing qualifiers at a lower ranked tournament. She obviously has the ability to win, so is it just that she is mentally fragile?
Well, I recall seeing Evie play Vera at Wimbledon. where she lost 6-0 6-2. It really seemed like that day she played way too tentatively. Vera very much has a clay court game and I think Evie could have exploited a lot better Vera's reluctance to come to net.
On occasion, Evie hit some powerful serves. She should have come in behind them to put pressure on Vera. Instead, she just stayed back and rallied. The rallies usually ended either with a winner from vera or a forced error from Evie, who would eventually be forced out of position. She played her best when she was 6-0 5-0 down. Finally she hit some aggressive shots and seemed more free. Thing is, once she got her 2 games, she reverted back to passive tennis.
