I don't see it for her at all. She simply doesn't have a lvl of tennis to perform on WTA. When you play on your favorite surface in home and you have this kind of performance against an opponent who is not good at all on clay
If you have reached a career ranking of #59, a WTA final and a couple of WTA semifinals, you sure do have the game to compete on the WTA. But as I said, winning is one thing and competing is another one. It's not that her career ranking is completely built up on ITF results.
And where is Cetkovska not good at clay: This year alone she has wins over Kerber, Puig, Barthel and many more Top 100 players. Everyone who has watched all matches will have to admit that she was one league above any player who had been scheduled on CC so far this week.
She doesn't know how to serve
That didn't hinder Errani from reaching Top 10 and Monica from reaching Top 30
She has 0 consistency
She is brainless
So is Sorana who reached a Master's final last year.
Of course, they all have other strengths to compensate for that, but only looking at single elements is making it far too easy. Good players convince with a complete package and a gameplan, but which WTA players have complete games?
She doesn't have a decent skill to compensate her brainless game.
She is doomed to fall into obscurity. I feel sorry for her, but maybe is time to change profession.
The only reason she is looking brainless is why she is in consistent struggle with herself, even her coach saw that. When he talked with her, he said a couple of things about point construction, but the biggest part was about mentality:
Broken from 40-0 on numerous occasions, wasted SPs like there is no tomorrow, can't win a TB for ages, broken when serving for the match against Bertens at FO hitting 3 DFs in a row. This has nothing to do with being brainless, this has more to do with being a total nutcase and lacking self-confidence.
And no, there is absolutely no reason for Alexandra to give up on her profession as long as players like Kichenok and co. are still traveling on the WTA tour.
Or do you think she would have found any new coach at that point if he didn't know about her potential. He already saw it in Soler-Espinosa whose games is quite frankly, much more limited than Alexandra's. We all need to calm down and hope for her to get things back on track and this can go pretty fast in the tennis sport.
