That's not the truth at all, that's your opinion, she may be mentally weak, will not deny that, but as for not being committed, that is just hog wash.. Why is she is Shanghai this week?? why has she played more tournaments than anyone else so far this year bar Panova. Why play at all, she doesn't have too, she doesn't need the money..
If she wasn't committed than why has she got Harold Solomon to coach her, infact she had to convince him that she was fully committed to her tennis, before he took on the job, of being her coach.. He took the job, so obviously he thinks she is committed, else he would not have taken it..
So basically you are saying she isn't committed becasue she hasn't won a tournament?? If that is the case, that should apply to a good majority of the tour..

Have you seen the draw?
From the form at the US OPEN and prior
events. I give Anna Smashnova, Yoon.J.Cho,
Mandula, Angie, Clarissa Fernandez, Jelena Kostanic,
and Adriana Serra Zanetti a better chance at winning.
Sorry. I don't think Anna really cares that much-
especially playing among people whom she assumes
are of a lower star caliber.
Prior form aswell?? If you are including prior form to the US open, then she would be a big chance of winning, we must have a short memory.
Oh and for the star cailber sh!t, yeah I am sure she took that into account before deciding to play the event
