She's down 1-5 in the 1st set in Austria as I type. Her opponent,WangXinyu, is ranked 106

either of two things.
1. she gats a boyfriend
2. Head swell

I have seen the same thing with Bianca Andrescu. As soon as she got herself a boyfriend her game when down hill from then.

Fighting back now 4-2

Not fair - Andrescu. has had more injuries than I can count.
Emma has serious coaching problems.

Yang back in front - if she breaks again that's the match

The weight of expectations? Some can bare it. Some can't.

She's also become quite the expert at timing her medical time outs. lol

Curiously, they always seem to occur just when her opponents are serving for a set/match or have momentum. It's just a coincidence of course. big grin
