Kutuzova...

Is it possible she was jsut a fluke? I remember her being compared to a young Seles, a future top 5 player, etc. But when you look back at her one good result, it was over two players who at the time were apparently both ill, and now are out of the top 100. She can't even win matches in 50K qualifying now. Is it possible this was just a big fluke? Can she ever duplicate that one result?

Probably shes not shown ANY form that would impress anyone. Doesn't make it any better for her that there are the likes Vaidisova's around who are winning tour events

Maybe shes a slow progesser

Yeh, I knew it was a fluke from the very beginning.

Never really thought she had any potential

I saw her play Monica Seles in WTT and even though Monica was total shit out there, you could tell Kutuzova had potential. She definitely has a fearless attitude out there and hits the ball extremely hard. I think you can tell she's working on her game now and is less concerned with immediate results. She was even tinkering with the grip on her service during the matches that night. I'd say give it a couple years...

I've seen her play and she definetly has potential. If she can get it together mentally she can surely make it big. She is still only 15.

i think she is talented but she certainly isnt progressing like the vaidisova and karatantcheva. but dont count her out, krajicek is meant to be a big prospect and hasnt done much (compared to nicole and sesil).

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

She has tons of talent, even Navratilova said so (she said the same thing about Kuznetsova). I think leaving juniors to early has hurt her and she does not play enough to be match tough under AER. She is no fluke and will be a top 20 player in the future.
