Tennis cheating must be reduced.
Poor use of VAR goes against Croatia. France win 4-2.
by disgraceful penalty decision by referee!
World Cup Final 2018.
Ostapenko -v- Kerber. Jelena lost 3-6, 3-6.
As usual the match was on Jelena’s racket. And as usual she produced the unplayable with the careless. That said, an all-round improvement in her play continues.
Mentally, her choice of hit must include an element of safety as well as her exciting and intimidating all-out attack. Often 100% power is not required. Often going for the lines is also not necessary. Hitting through the ball but with a little more spin would seem to be the main answer to reducing most of those many unforced errors?
The future is bright. Ostapenko is blessed with the natural talent required for making the necessary improvements which will, I feel, lift her to queen of women’s tennis over the coming twelve months.
In the Semi Finals now. Go girl!
The tactics did not work. Ostapenko played very well, winning 7-5, 6-4.
Cibulkova’s support team were continuously shouting and clapping before Ostapenko served. The crowd being quiet meant they were the only people being heard. Why were these cheats not recognised and ordered from the arena?
I never did agree with the likes of Glen Hoddle that practicing penalties does not improve the conversion rate of penalties. I hear that Southgate has had regular penalty taking sessions with England.
Well done Gareth!
