Question Barbora Strycova, whats wrong with her, why cant she break through :confused:

Her results were so good on the junior circuit and in 04 she had some really good tournies including getting to the 4th round of Indian Wells as a qualifier and the semi's or other tier 4 tournaments, after 04 her career has been in freefall, has'nt made the main draw of any main tour event in 06 an has just lost 7-6 in the 3rd to Benesova in the 2nd round of qualies in Stuttgart after serving for it, so why hasnt she broke through, is it her head or her game which lets her down ???

the last time i saw her in summer she was shouting all the time and smashing her raquet... she had absolutely no gameplan, went for her shots in the worst situations.... seems like she has really some problems with her head...

She's overweight.
She has good volleys but she doesn't come to net when she's suppose to.
She doesn't have any power shots.
She has variety but she doesn't use it in a high percentage fashion.
She doesn't have a gameplan when she's out there.
Her serve is a liability.

She also needs to find herself a consistent doubles partner.
