Question Pironkova, a real prospect for the future???

Is Tsveti a future top 10 possibility, i know she needs to improve her serve alot and get more variety but she hits the ball a ton and coming into the grasscourt season i think her game can excel in the coming week and i think she could pull off an upset or 2 at Wimbledon, she has shown she has the nerves and mental fortitude i mean anyone who is playing their 1st ever slam main draw match and can beat Vee 9-7 in the 3rd no matter how bad vee is playing is something special, so is she a potential star, anyone care to give an indepth breakdown of her game as i dnt know it all that well but im beginning to love her lots not as much as Vee or LenaD granted and i think she has great potential

Grassonkova.

I don't think she'll ever be Top 10. I think the highest she'll ever get is 24.

Tzveti has a great game. How far it will take her, I can't say.

dementieva + sharapova + bartoli + chakvetadze

Nope, her game is just very average imo. She can be top 30 maybe, but not top 10.

Let's see.

Unconventional serve, huge yet reliable groundstrokes off both sides, superb return of serve, poor mobility and footwork, no shot variety whatsoever. Lacking in aggressiveness, but that can be worked on.

Solid top 40, but probably no more.

Kvitova * Vaidisova * Garcia * Robson


Eu Jogo Ténis


Prokofiev + Son Goku = pwnage

No. Top 30-50 player if she maximizes her potential.
Weak serve, no variety at all. She does hit hard but she never goes for the lines. Just hitting the ball back with pace until opponent makes an error. That won't get you into the top 20 let alone top 10.

*1*Lindsay Davenport*1*

Maria Sharapova/Jelena Jankovic/Justine Henin

Also supporting Carla Suarez Navarro,Na Li, Sabine Lisicki,Karolina Sprem,Samantha Stosur,Tamira Paszek

Amelie Mauresmo/Martina Hingis

I really dont think shes that great...she had a very good day and venus had a very bad day and she got a bit lucky...thats really her only outstanding result...she's solid though.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Her match against Venus, I was there, and probably because I couldn't see the stats, but while Venus was drowning herself with those huge amounts of Unforced Errors, Pironkova played more aggresive and she kept hitting passing shots. She needs to be stronger, her groundies are solid, but building up in strength gets you a long way.

the only match i've seen is the venus match and i can't remember much. but she didn't impress me that much, her groundie didn't look that big, they were solid but they didn't look massive or anything, and she didn't hit cloes enough to the lines.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

She passed Venus alot becuase Venus was always coming in on really bad shots...she made Pironkova look even better...

I think she'll be top 50 for sure, but probably not too much farther...

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!
