Re: Who is a bigger disappointment? Tatiana Golovin vs. Nicole Vaidisova

Vaidisova's life is tennis. She's been through a really rough patch, but it looks like she's finally coming around, and she has a lot of time to redeem herself.

I honestly felt at one time that Tati could be a solid top five player and slam contender in the next few years. Her game was stunning. I'd be surprised to ever see her playing again, so I consider her a big waste of talent, and thus the biggest disappointment.

Ya those are my thoughts about Tati too. I enjoyed watching her and saw her as a big waste of potential and because I also liked her so much I also considered her the biggest disappointment.

Re: Who is a bigger disappointment? Tatiana Golovin vs. Nicole Vaidisova

Vaidisova is a bigger dissapointment. Her results dont do justice to her talent.

Golovin has talent, not as much as Vaidisova though.Now-a-days she is just a cumrag for the the tennis fans.

Bad attitude .vs. injuries in other words. I go for Nicole simply because it was in her hands, whereas the same cannot be said for the career of Tatiana

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Golovin's injuries are disappointing. I don't see how that makes her a disappointment.

Vaidisova's attitude is disappointing. I can see how that makes her a disappointment.

Vaidisova's style of play is going to get good results quickly on the WTA. That's why Nicole could do so much at such a young age. Her serve used to be fantastic, but her groundies have always been technically pretty flawed. Her backswing is just... intense. It's shocking she's been able to have such good results on grass with that. And even when she was playing well, her return of serve was always pretty bad. Again, see the backswing.

Tati's game took longer to develop and achieve great results. The potential was there though... you could see it. Some of her matches on green clay were absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately, her body was never up to the challenge.

Nicole. I will give Tatiana a pass due to injuries.

If Tati is not coming back that's gonna be a disappointment.

At least we can still see Nicole playing.

Re: Who is a bigger disappointment? Tatiana Golovin vs. Nicole Vaidisova

It's hardly fair to blame Tati. She has an illness. Nicole just got caught up chasing the wrong kind of balls. No excuse for her.

Re: Who is a bigger disappointment? Tatiana Golovin vs. Nicole Vaidisova

Tatiana is TOP 5 for sure but she's injured too much and I can't see her coming back so that's bigger disappointment then Nicole who is slightly coming back and I believe she will come back totally soon if not then as I'm the biggest fan she would be the biggest disappointment for me..
