Re: Sybille Bammer = Emmanuelle Gagliardi?
Emilie is a very talented player, no question, but she has a terrible career record in the US. Her game is not made for US hardcourts so I do regard this as a rather bad loss for Bammer.
Having added so many ranking points to her total in the last month, Bammer should easily sustain her top 30 ranking for the next 11 months without having to do anything spectacular. But given her age, and the fact she has the distraction of a child, I doubt it is going to get any better than this for her and I would be somewhat surprised (although not shocked) if she was still in the top 50 one year from now. But I wouldn't go as far as to call her a one trick pony. She will have other good results in her career albeit probably not quite on par with the last month.
