Lina Krasnoroutskaya

Was she bound to become the greatest Russian? How was her game like? I think I've never seen her play, bt she had an impressive junior career and impressive wins.

Re: Lina Krasnoroutskaya

She was a typical russian, hitting well on both sides, but a little weak physicly, too thin to worry the best players.
She was a great doubles player too.

Re: Lina Krasnoroutskaya

I really liked her style but I couldn't see her being the "greatest Russian" had she continued playing. I loved her BH though.

Halep Venus
Muguruza
Kerber
Safarova Bertens
Kvitova

Re: Lina Krasnoroutskaya

She was never going to become the greatest Russian imo.
She hit hard and powerfull from both wings like all Russian players, but had the same weaknesses pretty much, movement and consistency.
I don't remember her being at all thin... she was powerfull but not that fast... from what I remember. She was a good player, but hey, no more talented than many other girls out there imo.

Re: Lina Krasnoroutskaya

I think she could have reached the top 10 definately. Not sure how much higher though.

She had a lovely huge BH. She could do anything with it. It never broke down.

Her serve was extremely impressive too. Her 1st serve was big and consistent. She rarely hit DF's. Her 2nd serve was consistently deep and reliable.

Her FH was mainly just solid. It wasn't as flashy as her BH but it wasn't a weakness. She was really good off the ground.

Her weakness was probably the physical side of things. She wasn't overweight or anything but she was no Dementieva. Her movement was OK, i'd say it was nothing worse than Petrova's or Safina's at least and arguably better than both but I don't think her body could handle the physical strain.

Grassonkova.
