Who *are* you? I mean, really. You are an unrecognizable shell of your former self. This is not a good thing. Because JJ, for all the crap I give you, this game is better when you're good. When you're strutting your stuff, sliding, splitting, smiling, and literally and figuratively wearing glitter. But I just don't understand you right now. I mean, credit to A-Bond -- she played pretty well. But to lose in straight sets 2 and 3? I'm shocked.
Afterwards, JJ chalked it up to a bad day at the office. Maybe.
What. Is. That. Serve?
Whatever it is, she needs to wrap it back up and return it. It's horrible. I don't see how the technical and changes have created any additional power. Instead, she couldn't buy a first serve to save herself. It was sad to watch. Oh, and while she's at the Target Return Counter, I hope she still has the receipt for Ricardo. Because seriously, I don't know what he's selling but she shouldn't be buying it.
Sure, this could be a work in progress. Maybe the serve just isn't ripe yet. But like I said, it wasn't just that it was inconsistent. I didn't see *any* additional power or effectiveness even when it went in.
Anyway, I hope you figure things out and figure them out quickly.
Uh...Fed Cup, anyone? I guess I have 2 weeks to get some Xanax.
Now if only I knew someone who had a stash....
