Re: Your (realisitc) hopes for 2011
To answer your question,I don't have the first f--king clue what to expect/hope for.....You can see by my sig that I'm drawn to unpredictable,hopelessly inconsistent WTA Queens....I guess that I hope for Marion to 'pull a Schiavone' in 2011.I don't think that Fran is truly Top 10 caliber....Top 20 or Top 15,maybe...but that's her ceiling....I'd say that she was very lucky with some draws this year and,if Elena hadn't been injured,Fran's run would've stopped in the semis at RG and she would've missed out on YEC,almost for sure.I don't dislike her as a person;I simply don't feel that she's as good as her current ranking.....Basically,if Fran can do it,then Marion can catch some breaks,too,and shock the world.....What if Venus had had THIS year's injuries in 2007??....We'd be saluting 'Wimbledon Champion Marion Bartoli'.....sigh,etc.
