Why no one talks about ALG?

She just made her first QF of a grand slam. She has one of the best serves in business. She hits cool groundies and even volleys once in a while. She doesn't grunt. And she is super cute.

Anna-Lena deserves more attentions.

I guess ALG doesn't have the $$$ of IMG behind her, shoving her in our faces all the time!

If she keeps improving, she'll earn her way into our affections over time, the way Elena Dementieva did: slowly and naturally.

No, I agree.

I think she needs to be a little more consistent. She seems to win matches against top fifteen players and then lose to someone ranked 80th another week. I don't have her list of results, but that's my impression.

I've not seen her play properly, I've only heard about her. I must say that she looks to be an impressive athlete and considering this time three years ago, or even two years ago, she'd barely started, she's made rapid progress.

I certainly see her establishing herself in the top ten if she can avoid injuries. She has the height, the serve, the athleticism and the groundstrokes.

Because she's not going to amount to anything. She is way too inconsistent too survive week in and week out. Not to mention, she plays such brainless tennis: it's either hit the ball as hard as she can, or lob it. No middle ground.

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong

For the same reasons no one talks about Kuznetzova for example. They lack charisma!

She hasn't had that one huge win that usually puts players into the mainstream.

We just aren't impressed.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

if she gets more consistent with her groundies and waits a bit longer to finish the point then she could be quite competitive with the current crop of top players.

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.
