How much potential do you think Srebotnik has?

I think top 15 at most, if she stays consistent.

my great grandmother also can be Top 15, if only she stays consistent.

Srebotnik is unlikely to ever be a real force in singles.

she'll never be right at the top because she isn't good enough at anything but she's does have a lot more ability than her ranking. she seems like the type who is going to injured her whole career and might make a charge later in her career ala testud but even then i think she isn't that great and the tour is getting a lot more depth to it.

I reckon she's got a bit of potential in her, she might surprise a few people this season! She's off to a brilliant start to the year.
She played two very long 3 setters today - which she was expected to lose, and came from behind in the final, aswell as the doubles final.
The girl has got talent!

So many potencials in her game that have never been realized in full.

The reason: BAD COACHING!!!

Val d’Isère 2009 SC GOLD and Super-G BRONZE

I think she could be a top 25 (single) and top 10 (double)

I say solid top 35. Has a nice serve and volleys, groundies aren't the best though - backhand can be a weak pt.

I wouldn't say she had no potential at all, you can't say that of someone who did so well in juniors. Whether she realises it is another question.

I reckon she could reach top 20 with hard work, i just hope this new coach gets her arse in gear. At least Krizan is history.
