Question

Why is there so much attention given to her on the tennis channel? Why can she beat Capriati three times in 2002, but not anyone else. It sounds like she has a big serve and a big forehand, why can't she win???

Was Wimbledon 1999 a fluke? Doesn't she have a good solid game? I guess I am asking what happened or what does she need to do to improve or get back on track or even start winning matches again?

She has a solid game...her problem are her UFE, her weight, and her coach.

It's great to see that power tennis is far from being the ONLY thing a player needs in order to win some matches. A little consistency and intelligence helps

If she has so many ufe, and I can see that she is a little thick, what doesn't she try a different game style. If she is such good friends with the Williams sisters, why doesn't she try to maybe move the ball around like them and then when the oppurtunity presents itself, come to the net or go for the winner. It sounds like all she wants to do is hit hard, is she that ignorant to see that it isn't working?

On a different matter, she speaks of herself like she is on the brink of winning majors and big tournaments, but she isn't even good enough to win qualifing matches. This girl is a little disillusioned about how she plays. One good result in a major doesn't make you great.

Whatever happened between her and her father; Dr. J? Do they not speak, and if not why don't they speak??
