When will Vaidisova reach her first final at Tier II or above?

Though Nicole reached Roland Garros semis and finished the year in Top-10 she still hasn't made it to the final of Tier I or Tier II during her fairly short career. When will she break through? Your thoughts?

She has plenty of time. When Sharapova played Wimbledon in 2004, she had never reached a semi besides Tier III's.

Re: When will Vaidisova reach the final at Tier II or higher?

Maybe before RG...

Here's her schedule as of right now:

Sydney
Australian Open
Indian Wells
Miami
Charleston

She reached 7 SF this year but went 1-6. Losing to Schiavone, Kuznetsova, Clijsters twice, and Petrova twice.

That's a tough schedule she's got.

Re: When will Vaidisova reach the final at Tier II or higher?

It's a very spare schedule. There's like two months between Australia and California.

Edit: But I'm sure she'll get into more things between them. It's tough, but she's good.

Re: When will Vaidisova reach the final at Tier II or higher?

She needs the draw to open up at some of those events. She won't beat Justine, Maria, Petrova on most days. Best chance for her is at Indian Wells where the draws tend to open up, and she can do some damage on the American hard.

Before RG.

She made a lot of semis, but got some tough opponents as said earlier in this thread.

It's only a matter of time until she wins a big title.

Then the haters have to come up with new stuff.

Re: When will Vaidisova reach the final at Tier II or higher?

I'd say she'll reach a Tier II or higher final before RG 2007, if not then at least before the YEC 2007 to be certain. Nicole's still gotta lot to prove in 2007 & she will deliver.

Re: When will Vaidisova reach the final at Tier II or higher?

seriously i don't see her reaches the final in the 5 tournaments above even i desparately want to. those tournament are tough. hopefully Nicole changes her mind about playing some more after Melbourne especially on hard court outdoor at the Middle East which fits her game the best.

But if she decided to have a tough shedule mean she has high expectation.She knows her capacities more than anybody.
