Guys only: best legs and other best female issues

Is it just me or everyone notice that Giorgi; after winning a match doesnt go to the middle of the court to blow kiss or whatever like Masha, Caro and many more.
Yes, and have you also noticed how she isn't showered in endorsement and advertising deals...first off is she is inherently shy and modest (saw her in New Haven getting praise and she looked gracious but embarrassed), and not everyone knows how to sell themselves...Maria, Sunshine, amongst the best...and the proof is in their bank accounts!!! She should hire a PR coach if she wants to get that chess...god knows she's got the bod for ad's!

obviously I hoped it was the opposite :D:rolleyes:o_O
I understand its early but Aga's falling into the same troubling pattern that befell her last season. She wins the first match of a tournament easily, struggles in the second match (usually being taken to three sets) and then loses ugly in the third match. (usually to a much lower ranked player - or least most were lower ranked last season anyway)

She was sick with the flu to start the season last year, then suffered from some lingering foot issue most of the spring and then was beset by some mysterious virus in early summer that her camp never fully explained. By the time she was through with all these set-backs the 2017 campaign was nearly at an end and she finished out of the top 10 for the first time in several years.

Now the 2018 season as begun and we're seeing the same disturbing pattern reemerge, win-struggle-lose. I don't think she made it past the third match of a tournament more than once or twice all last season. Here's hoping she's just knocking off the rust and will do better going forward. She's going to be 29 later this year and speed and quickness are basically her entire game.

It's going to get harder and harder to pull off the "run and fetch" strategy she plays too much longer...:(

I saw one of her recent matches, she looks very fit with no obvious sign of injury, but for some reason she is making a lot of unforced errors, just routine balls she keeps missing by a wide margin. Aga making routine errors is gonna struggle to stay in the top 100! Lets hope she can turn it around soon

I wonder if Aga should go back to Babolat? Ever since moving to Sryxon or whatever it is...she's loosing a bit?
I remember Caro was on top, then moved to Yonex and bam down hill and now back to Babo and rising up again.
Thoughts??

She was using a painted black Babolat Pure Drive with the Srixon stencil for the greater part of the previous season, so no reason to blame the bow over the Indian.

I do not follow Rawanaska much but I do like her knee down backhand baseline stroke. Rawanaska still could develop a powerful serve and groundstrokes e.g. a Justine Henin clone maybe? But at 29, it getting there as you pointed out! Rawanaska still top 20? I think so still doing well from what I see.
