Unfulfilled Talent!



Mention all the players you think have unfulfilled / untapped talent who have nowhere near reached their potential , and whose outlook is grim at the moment, most likely due to mental reasons, motivation, and maybe a little bit of injuries.


I'll start...
Nicole Vaidisova



To a lesser extent
Tatiana Golovin
Daniela Hantuchova
Na Li



On the lower level scale...
Alexandra Stevenson
Karolina Sprem
Jelena Dokic
Ashley Harkleroad


Obviously, you could mention a lot of players..., but I won't mention any grand slam players, players who are very young, players who are in retirement, or players who i don't know very well.

Re: Unfulfilled Talent!

Na li(injuryprone but so so much talent. Has a big game.)
Nicole Vaidisova
Tatiana Golovin(injuryprone, but a lot of talent)
Kim Clijsters(i think everyone would have thought she would be a multiple slamwinner at least, i thought she would at least reach davenport caliber)
Jelena Dokic(shoulda-coulda situation)
Justine henin(not unfilfilled but she retired WAY too early. Could and should have reached 10 slams in singles, with at least 1 wimbledon.)

All-Time-Great
Justine Henin

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.
Intelligence Officer of the SS Dementieva

Re: Unfulfilled Talent!

Clijsters for me, 10 years from now unknowlegeable people will barely remember her, all because she has only 1 slam to her name. reaching rolland garros final at 17 y.o. seemed such an inmensely promising start. I guess all the missed opportunities finally got to her...

And Kuzzie. I seriously think that with her game she should have achieved a lot more.

Wickmayer - Wozniacki - V.Williams - Zheng - Bartoli - Lisicki - Clijsters

Amazing career, but still could've won so many more slams if she didn't go crazy and turn into Chokepusherunmotivatedtina when she was like 18.

Re: Unfulfilled Talent!

For anyone that puts any players 21 or younger on their lists ... give these girls some time. Unfulfilled implies that it isn't going to happen, and our WTA Tour is FULL of stories of late blooming, early blooming, and boom & bust & boom.

Ladies that belong in the "unfulfilled" category: Kournikova, Tulyaganova, Stevenson, Lucic, Clijsters*, Henin*, Seles*.

Ladies who have time against them in being able to fulfill this so called potential: Vaidisova, Sprem, Mirza, Kutuzova.



* These players played at full potential but didn't play out that potential its entire length for whatever reason.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.
