I´ll start with Austria and analyse some players. Post your opinions about your country and the others here
Since Babsi Schett isnt that constant anymore and the retirements of Wiesner, Paulus, Plischke and Maruska Austria´s tennis is going nowhere
She should retire soon. It´s pretty sad to see her playing qualifying matches and even loose those ones. She retired from Casablanca this week and refuses to play pro-tournaments in Austria
If she wasn´t injured all the time Im sure she is a top 20 player with all her wins over top-players. Maybe she can crack the top 100 again
Many ups and downs so far but I believe she gets into the top 100 this year. She has the game plays very aggressive and forced top 20 player Smashnova to three sets last year. When she is on nobody and I mean nobody can beat her at the Challenger level, which she showed us last year with three 25 000$ Challenger wins in a row
she shoud concentrate on doubles. She lost in the first round of qualies in Casablanca. She will never reach the top 100 again
Injured since last autumn. I dont think she will be able to compete again. She should be happy to enter the top 200 again. She hasnt the game to compete with the young guns ansd with her 26 years she should retire soon
Stefanie Haidner, Nicole Remis, Nicole Melch, Bianka Kamper and Petra Russegger
are playing on the tour for years now without much success. Im giving Remis the biggest chances to break through sometimes
Sandra and Daniella Klemenschitz:
An excellent doubles team. Sandra maybe able to reach the top 200. Tough they are twins Daniella wont be able to make the top 300.
Yvonne Meusburger and Tina Schiechtl
Both are good enough to get inside the top 100 in the next two years.
No chance. That girl is and was always overhyped. She is the only girl who gets money from the Austrian Tennis Federation. She has two coaches but wins nothing. She should start to find a new hobby
Very promising are Stefanie Rath (14)
and Tamira Paszek (13) .
Rath enters the top 100 in juniors this week. Paszek is the Number 2 in Europe under 14. I really hope the achieve their aims cause otherwise I dont see other talents out there to help Austria´s tennis
