Harsh words those of Ekaterina Bychkova who from Russia, after naming her Yankee and slightly suggesting her to change nationality last year, blames again Maria Sharapova on a private matter: “Love is love, but the one between her and Dimitrov seems like public relations stuff… It’s difficult to have relationships when you constantly travel around the world.”
In the same interview the world’s number 153 is asked why Italian girls boom on the threshold of 30s. In this case the Russian player defends Vinci, who was singled out: “Roberta deserved everything, she has a great technique, she had a bad luck before because of the injuries”.
How to play from the baseline
The expression “to endure the rally” is about those indeterminate moments of a rally where none of the players is leading.
The ability to endure the rally is fundamental when you play a “long rally”, because it offers you the chance to measure your opponent’s strong points and vulnerabilities, besides letting you position as best as possible for your next offensive shot.
