Kirkland is another no-talent from the USTA. She's a grinder w/o any weapons and will never be a top player. I could beat Kirkland in a match. Plus, get that Babolat racquet of her hands. My friend, who is also my stringer and the no.1 singles player on our high school team, agrees that Babolats give people a false impression on how much power they have. One of the boys on our team uses a pure drive and he said that he has so much more power now (gee I wonder why?).
