The WTA tour moved to Charleston, South Carolina for the Volvo Open which is the oldest US tournament. Coco should have won both sets for the loss of no games easily. At 4-0 in the first set up 40-15 on Pironkova’s serve she allowed her opponent to come back to win that game. Imagine what it would have done for her confidence to win both sets to love.
Coco impressed once again with her determination reminiscent of Venus of the late 90s. She has good leg work watch the coverage of the court first point of the seventh game 4-2. It is promising to be a great clay court season for Cori. If she gets that first tournament win , one gets the feeling she will get a lot more and fast. I want you to take a look at this point which happened at 3-0 second set first point of the fourth game. I like risk takers and Coco showed she is one. Look at her position during the rally, way away from the base line risking the surprise drop shot from Pironkova. This is clay by the way so the dramatic drop shot is always looming. Even on her own serve down advantage at deuce up 4-0, she plays a back hand full blooded shot tempting lady luck who gladly obliged in her favor via the top of the net.Solid game from the American.
