Will Hantuchova win from now on in her career?

Re: How many tournaments...

Hard to say....at a guess considering Daniela's age and how her career is going I would say an addition 2 to 5 would be most likely. It could of course be over 5 or nothing at all but the likelihood is that it will fall in this range. I would also presume that those tournaments would all be of a Tier II or higher status.

Re: How many tournaments...

A few more I would say.

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaď
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

A few more. Probably around 6 or so. She may surprise us all and win a slam too.

That would be very nice. I will keep my expectations much more modest but were she to actually surprise me by winning a slam I have no doubt I would share your level of happiness.

Re: How many tournaments...

I think she is at a crossroad: she can climb from her position and become a top 5 player, or she will slide in her usual 10-20 position and won't win much and just fade way like Dementieva. Of course considering her mental case, she's most likely to slide.

Re: How many tournaments...

i don't think she can go any further
she always has a tough time against #11-20 ranked players bc it's her true level.

Re: How many tournaments...

well last year she got over her mental/physical block of actually winning events (which some people never manage), and started out the year big with the semifinal in Australia.
I still don't see her as a grandslam winner, sorry. She just doesn't have big enough weapons to take out 4-5 tough opponents. Assuming she doesnt completely fade away again I would give her 1-2 events a year for the next few years, making some noise here and there but nothing stunning. probably finish her career with 10 or so titles.

If her place is below #10, who would you put in there? I could ask the same question about Bartoli and Chaky b/c i read the same "she doesn't belong there" opinion often about them.

So who are the true TOP10's not being there?

Re: How many tournaments...

In the last 6 years, she won three, so she´s in a average of 2 each 2 years, so for the next 6 years she´ll win three titles, of course 2 times in Indian Wells!

Re: How many tournaments...

It depends what tournies she plays. If her schedule is as it has been she could get maybe 3 or 4 more.

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

Re: How many tournaments...

she chokes way too much to win a slam.

there's not a draw easy enough. especially at a major

she'll win like 3 or 4 more tier II or III ...maybe a tier I
