I know what you mean? It baffled me too. Watched that final
against NRR-DEN and I couldn't believe Myskina won because
it didn't look like she was doing anything special; but that's
where we are wrong. Myskina does a hell lot on court, and
her baseline passing shots are difficult to read. She doesn't
seem to be moving quickly; but she's very fast. Doesn't make
alot of grunting, so it doesn't look to be heavy hitting; but it's
on the level with everyone else in the top 10. It's more about
the untangibles. Myskina has excellent shot selection and
anticipation of an opponents returns.
