Unlike Martina N who is content having won all 12 titles completing the 100K golden slam, Sveta needs to focus and not do too much like what she is doing now. Last year she was restricted to play less by AER, not this year.
Doing too much in singles and doubles will make her lose focus in one.
I believe she does have the confidence in both finishing high in both rankings, and she does have a T2 title to prove that. But like Kim, her doubles play could take energy off her and thus making her tank in her singles some times.
She is going to be the one with the most matches played this if she keeps this up , and that is not a good.
Hopefully she'll reach #1 in doubles soon, but that's a long shot if she doesnt win a slam.
Good luck Sveta, and win US Open for yourself
