some positive results: an easy win for Rybakina, ans also Bencic got into R2. after seeing her play last week, I was not so sure about her. Now she get Ostapenko

Kasatkina lost against Keys, but that was not a surprise anymore. I wonder where it is going so wrong for Darya. She got the skill-set, but fails to get results with it.
Deep sigh from my side... I guess I got myself another Pavlyuchenkova with Kasatkina. Probably some peaks and wins on International/Premier level, but not a consistent top16 player who can win P5, prem.Mands or Slams... I admit defeat; there must be something missing that blocks her from being a top player. Could be a mental issue.
ps: she still is member of team Graveller :-)

Kasatkina doesn't have an offensive approach, just defends. Until she develops an offensive approach she'll never see the top-10 again (career high ranking of 10th). "Live" ranking has her at 71st after her loss to Madison. Younger players like the 15 year old Cori Gauff at 61st and the 18 year old Swiatek at 65th are already ahead of her and they play both ways. One cannot blame her coaches, as their OCC sessions reveal that they've suggested to her repeatedly that she be aggressive offensively. Apparently, she's not taking their suggestions to heart. As a result, she's continuing to fall in the rankings. It's up to her to change.....

In addition, I don't see the comparison to Anastasia, for Pavly' does have an offensive approach to her game. She just continues to self-whip herself into defeats, lacking consistency, discipline and maturity in her game at age 28 with weapons and power. Another underachiever in the women's game.....

Wasn’t comparing their game play/strategy, but rather the fact that both have top10 talent but for (different) reasons cannot translate that into a decent ranking...
