She could enter top 15 easily, I totally agree. But I think her personality is the one that stops her from doing better on the tour. She just wants to be "real" in every interview and she says her normal results should be 2-3rd rounds at GS's and 2nd rounds at the bigger tournaments, where she's not seeded. That's an awful attitude. She just doesn't want to believe that she can make top 15 and that's preventing her from it. That's in her personality, she can change it, but hardly.

That's why its refreshing to have Klepac, who right now hasn't got any barriers, or any kind of mental weaknesses.
Uhm, I think that kind of result is always awful for a player like Kata I see her normally as better than Golovin - in this season she definitely had no big highlight so far - and BTW: what means this sentence she said in Stuttgart?

I can agree. It is always said when players with such a talent have an attitude like that. When she is again on a good way she loses again to lower ranked players like last year Suchá or this year Vesnina, .... - but when she really doesn't change anything it will be even hard for her to re-enter in Top-20.

Yeah, Andreja is obviously a fighter. Sure, not the weapons like a Kata, but she tries to improve all the time and that's the good thing. She also plays a lot. Shows how important it is for her. When I met her for a short time in 2006 Stuttgart, she was very cool. Her win against Tu was just .
