i think it's harder being a youngster today.
vaidisova won two WTAtour titles and people are saying she's all crap cuz she still didn't get to the latter stages of the GS.
hingis, capriati, seles - they were rare. masha belongs to that group.
but other youngsters weren't as good as golovin, safina, ivanovic and strycova are.
mirza, masha k, na li and such bring the average class of a top100 player way way better than 5 years ago.
the fact is that veterans are getting pushed out of the very top.
the fact is that youngsters are trying to be the best nowadays, and not only good players.
the fact is that you can't moonball no more, or have general stamina. you have to be quick, strong, smart and more.
if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
