She could have an exciting year.
Here's this women whose game hasn't really changed since she switched it up after the juniors. She hits the ball relatively flat, doesn't move great, really has no net game, inconsistent serve, and plays for fun.
Over six years after the fact of Amy being the last person to beat Graf on tour, she has yet to change but the game has changed.
A lot of these players coming up play similar to her. She's been around so long that two generations of gamestyles have passed.
While Conchita talks about being an endangered species in the women's tennis game, Amy has all these girls around her in the rankings who have good consistent nonvaring groundstrokes but pretty weak net games.
Amy has the experience over them. If she can keep it together she could sneak into the top 30. Without really being able to finish things off at net consistently that's all she can really hope for.

Something needs to change.
