Why have ivanovic/ vaidisova not been able to deliver-- and Maria has?

I mean, aren't they supposed to be so much more talented than Pova?

Nicole is 2 years younger than Maria and a year and a half younger then Ana. She still has plenty of years to deliver good success on tour, it doesnt have to be before you are 18 you know

one dimensional players peak sooner as they having nothing to think about while multidimensional ones take longer until their mental side catches up with talent. If you look at the stats, Pova has played almost double the matches than either of the two so Ana and Sova are still inexperienced overall and haven't played many players yet

I think there was another thread about this a while back around the time of the US Open.

Talent means nothing if you don't have a killer instinct and a born drive to win. Mental toughness means everything in the sport of tennis. Maria is willing to fight to the end, and that's what makes her a great champion.

That's what they said about Steffi Graf and Chris Evert...and you see how lousy their careers turned-out.

please.

Maria playing more matches has certainly something to do with the fact that she's winning a lot of them.
and we're not comparing Maria with Martina Hingis in term of style of play.

they will do something or not, i'm the first to hope tremendous things for Ana, really, but no excuses, right now Maria is the best youngie, until another one gets better results then her. Tough mission.

to new beginnings.

i agree totally.look petrova or mauresmo...or federer in ATP.
sharpie should play doubles to improve her net play. she made progress on her moves (she lost some weight since French Open). she should become a serve and volley player but it seems she's in love with her baseline.i don't think she can dominate like serena williams did.

This place is too small to put all the players i like here.

I think Hingis disproves this.

yes because she's THE genius of the game.
but unfortunately, it seems that the new tennis is all about power, not tactics at all fortunately there is anna chakvetadze who's givin me a little hope.
