    Garbi hasn't won back-to-back matches since the French semi. And she beat Riske easily in the spring. I wonder if she has lingering injuries, or if it's a confidence issue. She made the semis of Tokyo last year.

    I hope there's a good explanation, and it's physical, not waning interest. Then I think, everyone's different. Not all players will be 100% committed week in, week out. I guess being a fan means accepting them for who they are. Just wish we knew what was going on. And I wish I felt that way every time I see that she loses badly to a sub-Top 50 playerl
