Re: What is Razzano’s max potential?

Potentially top 20 a la Srebotnik or Bammer. She's finally gained the mental edge she needed to match her on-court skills. But I don't see her going top 10.

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.

Re: What is Razzano’s max potential?

no higher than she is now...she needs to get a real serve and not choke before she can go any further, and it's a bit late now.

Re: What is Razzano’s max potential?

After watching her play live, the word that comes to mind is "methodical." To me, Razzy's game-style is very flat, deep, and mechanical looking. The serve is nothing spectacular, but is well placed. All that said, I LOVE watching Razzy play because I get the sense that she's building something...that she thinks out there...like she's playing chess or something. I can see her grinding into the Top 20, but Top 10 is off limits because the power players and mindless ball-bashers give players like Razzano little time to think/react.

Re: What is Razzano’s max potential?

Virginie can become Top 20 f she wants, shes a player with a great game, great groundstrokes... she#s just the inconststency in person but if she continues like she's playing now I see her in Top 20 soon... and it would be about time for her.

Re: What is Razzano’s max potential?

Enough potential to win a razzie

IF Maria Sharapova = Masha
& Maria Kirilenko = Makiri
THEN...
Lindsay Davenport = Linda
Anastasia Myskina = Amy
Conchita Martinez = Coma
Shahar Peer = Shape
Alicia Molik = Almo
Sofia Arvidsson = Soar
Maria Vento Kabchi = Maven
Magdalena Maleeva = Mama
Rennae Stubbs = Rest
Anne Keothavong = Anke
Tamarine Tanasugarn = Tata

Re: What is Razzano’s max potential?

Her groundstrokes were really amazing today. I really loved when she got a high defensive slice lop and she used her forehand to just pound it away (cept one that went totally wrong when she was serving for the match ). Ana is one of my favourites and yeah I wanted her to win today, but when Razzano was up 5-2 in the final set, I actually wanted Ana to lose. When Razzano gets her serve and her head together she could be top 20 easy and even edging toward the top 10.

Re: What is Razzano’s max potential?

Her serve is not as bad as it's made out to be. It's okay, better than Marion's. In fact, yes, if Marion can make the top ten, why can't Virginie? Virginie has just as great groundstrokes, if not better, better mobility, and a better serve. Maybe some mental fortitude would help her do what Marion has.
