Is SPREM OVERconfident or OVERrated?

I am sure everyone were predicted Karolina SPREM to be one of the SF's strong contender...BUT sadly she lost to Casanova in the early round?

what happen to her...is she to OVERconfident about herself, that she is the dark horse or is everyone to OVERrated her?

or did she lose to player who at her best is very strong? i'm sick of people trying to work out how sprem lost!! it's simple, she served poorly, myriam played great, myriam thumped her. there isn't a need for this OVERanalysis.

switz...i wish u would stop, myri played well, but having seem klina play before, you could tell that she wasnt 100%...not taking anything away from myri, because she was very aggressive and took advantage of the opportunity, but klina was way off her game, its also really hard to win a match when u cant even buy a first serve...

i hope myriam can realy take advantage of this win ad go far in the draw

hmm, maybe she's just too young??? you shouldn't compare her with other players who've been playing like for years!!!!!!!!!!!! i think the way she behaves is just kinda mask she tries to put on. she has w geat potential, but it really needs to be discovered. let's hope her talent won't be spoiled. i really wish her best of luck, hope she's gonna be BIG someday....

stop what?? i think that is exactly what i said in my last post and in response to your comments on the match in other thread (which i thanked you for). i said sprem served poorly, although myriam had 7 doubles as well. the fact is though that players have to deal with illness and they play poorly often. it's not as though karolina is immune to playing poorly, no player is. i mean people talk about her as if she is unbeatable, and her results, although impressive, show that she certainly isn't. she has lost matches this year to players worse than myriam. i'm just annoyed by the lack of respect many k-lina fans (not yourself) are showing myriam.

Maybe she is just over-playing. Some of these young girls who are just coming on tour need to select carefully the number of tournaments they play. Maybe she is trying to move too fast, too soon.

I don't think so? I didn't see how her match. Did she play poorly?
