Re: Will Kanepi win a title this year?
Big thing: she is playing pretty much only the elite events. She's good but not good enough to regularly challenge for Tier I and II titles. She'd be a queen at Tier III, IV events, but she's too good to keep playing them and wants to improve by facing the best.
Same thing happened with Kournikova, Hantuchova, Petrova... if you reach a certain level before you are really going to challenge for every big title, you aren't going to have much of a title haul until you CAN challenge for every big title.
