Karolina Sprem - what can she do again?

It is very sad with her, two years ago she was top-20 and beat some great players and now? She is nearly falling out of top-100. Its sad because on good days she can beat so many players and plays great tennis, but on the other days she plays so terrible with tons of unforced errors. I wish she can come back again, what do you think?

Re: Karolina Sprem - what can she do again?

I'd say top 50 at best at this point. She is far too erratic.

Re: Karolina Sprem - what can she do again?

I dont know if she comes back again into the top-20, because she makes too many errors in so many matches. Now she seems to get a new coach, maybe its good for her? I wish she comes back very well....I stay optimistic and thinks she comes someday back into the top-30 (rank 22-30) ....

Re: Karolina Sprem - what can she do again?

She still has the game to get back a lot higher than where she is now, at least top 30 if she can get on a few more hot streaks and cut out some more of the early round exits. Bottom line for her is that she has the weapons and she's certainly fit enough to get there, but now it's all between the head. She has to play tactically smarter, learn to play with a bit more margin at times and not just try to paint the lines and just skim it over the net every single time. Eventually people get to know your game, so she has to stop making so many easy errors because people know if they can keep themselves in the rallies long enough, she'll start to break down. Hope she can get it all together again

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

*Agree*

And she is as person also very lovley, so this would be another point for hoping that she has higher rankings soon

But some of her losses

Re: Karolina Sprem - what can she do again?

I think her time in the Top 20 is long behind her, but Top 50 is possible. She goes for these big, risky shots all the time, even when it's not necessary. When you have a completely open court, you don't need to hit the line at 100 MPH.

Re: Karolina Sprem - what can she do again?

I really hope that she can get back to her 04 form again, she was devastating at times that yr to watch. Im not going to make any predictions on her but i think she may get it together within the coming months

If she stays healthy, then yes, she can come back again, how far? It depends on her goals!

Re: Karolina Sprem - what can she do again?

She certainly has the weapons to get into top 30, its just using them effectively and in consecutive tournaments. Hopefully she will get on a winning streak in 2007!

Re: Karolina Sprem - what can she do again?

Well based on her first match of 07 not much.

But I think if it all came together she could realistically be a top 30 performer. But she would need to improve a lot tactically, she couldnt do it just playing the same way she is now.
