Re: The original Ana
Kournikova was extremely talented, but she was plagued by injuries and didn't have the mental strength required to be a champion. Ana, on the other hand, is also enormously talented, but she has her head on straight and avoids injuries. Both players can be streaky at times, but Kournikova was much more inconsistent. She also never improved (possibly influenced by her mother). The game she entered the tour with was basically the same one she left with, whereas Ana is improving with every match.
