My two cents: Myskina is overrated
You know I am one that respects and enjoys all the women that play the game on the WTA tour. But after reading all the hoopla over Anastasia Myskina, all I have to say is that she is absolutely the most overrated as a tennis player.
As far as I am concerned, Myskina is one of THE luckiest tennis players ever to have played the game. It's never mentioned that she rose near to the top when all the injuries began to plague the women's top players in 2003.
Granted she took full advantage of the situation, and it's not really her fault the tour had gone the way it has since June of 2003.
But I sincerely doubt she would be where she is right now if the Williams sisters, the Belgians and Capriati and Davenport had not suffered so many injuries that kept them off the tour and left them struggling to even return to the players they were.
Now don't get me wrong, I applaud Myskina for working harder and being able to find her best success on tour since the Fall of 2003.
But I really want to see what she is made of once EVERYBODY on tour is fully healthy and back on tour fulltime.
Than let's see what she is REALLY made of and then we can start singing the praises if whether or not she is the "best tactition," "the craftiest player since Hingis," and "the most exciting tennis player to watch."
