Re: Grass (finally)
Very depressing, isn't it?
She's never going to be consistent, is she? Even on her best surface. And in her late twenties, you do start wondering how many more good runs she has in her. At this point, every second round bombing out of a slam really hurts.
If you look back at her career from 2004 you see that actually this is not an unusual thing. Every year she plays like 26 tournaments and loses early at 20 of them. It is just that she has had some good weeks here and there that have allowed her to stay in the top 20. This gives the illusion of someone who is consistant but actually her results are consistant only in that she loses early at most tournaments.
