In regard to the article about Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova winning a match at the Baku tournament with 25 double faults, I have decided to write a response article to that. And I agree that it’s amazing how she could’ve have won that match.
I report that she has lost in the quarters of the event to Kazakhstan’s Galina Voskoboeva with a score of 6-7(5) 6-4 6-3, and this time having more double faults than her last match at 27 total.
It really shocks me that one of the top players in the world could serve that much double faults, and it’s not a great way to promote yourself, or the WTA. My advice for her would be to focus on the serve when going training next time, if she really wants to step it up.
