Meghann Shaughnssey?

Just wondering what do people really think about this odd American veteran who is rarely talked about. Several years ago (I think in 2001) it looked as though Meghann was about to become a major star, she was having super results, and then she went back down as quickly as she rose up. Also wondering what is her problem why she stays with that freak Font de Mora, I think it is quite cowardly of her not to get rid of him because he obviously did not bring her good results for many years now. She could get somebody better but she never took the steps to do so, why not?

She just wacks every ball as hard as she can

Not really. In fact, one of her major problems over the past couple of years was that she was being far too passive on court. She moonballs a lot, especially off the backhand.

Re: Meghann Shaughnssey?

I mean, if you look at Grönefeld's past three years it's a copy of what happened to Meghann back then.
One great year shooting up close to the top 10 and that was it. Only possible difference is that she didn't fall of completely, she managed to go on and do decently, but disappointing nonetheless.

It's the result of Font de Mora's fabulous "method" which leads to early burn-out.

Meghann doesn't have enough body mass?

Well she certainly wasn't passive in Portoroz

Re: Meghann Shaughnssey?

I really don't have any respect for Meghann, who stays with de Mora even after he essentially stalks and harasses her ex-doubles partner, ALG.

I tend to think the same, she makes herself look a bit pathetic by staying with him.
