Question What about Mirza? She def. Kuznetsova 6-4 6-2

Well she's 18, started in the top 200 this year and is already in the top 100 right now. She's small (1.55m or something) and has a game similar to Amanda Coetzer. And she's erving for the match against Kuznetsova right now (6-4 5-2)

Somebody watching this match? Svetlana isn't playing that great but that girls brings so many balls back! Will she be the 'new star' of 2005?


Ok she won 6-4 6-2

Mirza has alot of game. Reminds me alot of Sharapova. I'd love to see those 2 play each other sometime soon.

Serena had to play unbelievable to beat her easily in the AO and she will probably face her in Dubai so it will be a very interesting match.

ok but Mirza doesn't have a serve so I don't think she can get into the top 10 or so?!

Mirza does have a big serve. It's still a bit inconsistent at times but its a BIG serve, defenetley a huge weapon when it's on. Maybe not Serena, Molik Davenport but a big asset.

Wouldn't say Sania's game is similar to A. Coetzer. Sania hits way harder. She's prospect, think she'll make it to the semis. Slim chance of becoming the new star of 2005 Very curious how she will do on the American/European tour.

Sonya's game isn't like Amanda's.Her game is better.I will say she is Tatiana Golovin II.

And I thought she had a big serve

ok she hits the ball harder than Amanda did but she doesn't have real weapons imo but brings everything back (ok that's also a weapon )

@Bram: that's what they said on Eurosport and she was about 20cm smaller than Kuzzi

The WTA misprinted the metric height as 1.53, while stating her correct height in the American system as 5'7" or 1.70, and her game is not at all similar to Coetzer if you saw the AO 3rd round

I love her game. She is nothing like coetzer. Mirza hits very hard. Im jumping on this bandwagon for sure

Her movement is still a little slow but she hits hard. I doubt she'll beat Jankovic or Farina Ella in her next match. It's been a great week for her though. Congrats Mirza.

Sania most definitely has a weapon.. one of the biggest forehands in the game. She is also not nearly as good a mover as Coetzer, she knows that her fitness and serve are what she needs to improve to make it into the game's elite.
