I like Vaidisova

Her game is far from perfect, but at least she's trying some things, like drop-shots and going to the net (volleys need some work).
And when she makes stupid errors she knows exactly WHY she made them. She seems to be thinking out there.

And a few days ago I saw a long interview with her and another young guy from the Bolletieri camp. She sounded very mature and also pretty bright.

Good luck.

I like her too shes a very talented youngster who already pushes the top players.
Theres still a lot for her to learn and experience to be gained but she will become a dominant player.

I still know almost nothing about her... never seen her play, and her results seem to sneak past without me noticing them..... I would like to, as there are raps on the girl

i think her time will come in the near future. i have to say though i thought it was sort of funny how she gets inside the baseline when she's trying to return davenport's first serve. she waits outside the baseline while waiting for the serve but right after the ball is hit she would stepped inside the line. it shows how young and inexperienced she is. no wonder lindsay keeps ace-ing her but its easy to see her potential, she has a fluid service motion and has touch and variety. she knows davenport doesn't move as well so she tried some drop shots and drop volleys.

Nicole has avery bright future. Not getting crushed by Lindsay Davenport is a good effort from Nicole because Davenport has a history of crushing the youngsters the first time she plays them.

Nicole and her hard hitting game reminds me of Maria Sharapova and her hard hitting game. But Nicole is further along physically and a better tennis player than Masha was at 15. It will be interesting to see if Nicole has the same kind of huge upside that Sharapova has.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

Nicole will certainly heading for the Top20 this year IMO. This good showing at the Australian Open has shown what good things may come.

I love Nicole too. She's got a great future ahead of her. I would like to see her continue playing the lower tier events, gain experience and wins.
