Forget the previous top ten ranking, and the one tournament win. Look at her game. it's one dimensional to a fault. Hit cross-court, hit cross-court, hit down the line if the opponent falls over in a siezure. She can't volley well enough to come in off a deep approach shot. If she comes in at all, it's off a short ball. Her serve has pace, but it easy to read. She has no spins worth mentioning.
In short, she owes her ranking to her power. I don't see her game suddenly blossoming. It's too late in the day.

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.
