Suckvetadze: The most overrated Russian?

Surprise, surprise, another early GS loss for you-know-who. She generated so much damn hype in 2007 based on her Mary Pierce mannerisms and hardcourt bashing style, but after she choked away that USO semi to Kuznetsova she has never been the same. I think she delivers the least bang for the buck of any player in the last 5 years.

Eh...she's merely a Top 50 player now. I don't view her as anything more or less.

Re: Suckvetadze: The most overrated Russian?

To be honest, whatever psychological impact the robbery had on her is affecting her play. Ever since, shes been playing badly. I think she needs help.

Its a terrible shame.

It's so easy to hit someone who is already down!

She's a good player. She'll come back

She's a great player. Even if she plays mostly like shit for the rest of her career, I think she'll always be a loomer in the draw. She'll get back.

Re: Suckvetadze: The most overrated Russian?

She won 7 titles and finished 2007 as world #6.
But she's awful this week. Not that bad in Rome

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Suckvetadze: The most overrated Russian?

She is not overrated at all. She is a fantastic player, she had a lot going on in her life and then sort of hit a career crossroads and hasn't come out on the right side yet.
