Re: Tamira Paszek. What went wrong?
Well, in the modern women's tennis, with all these random girls in the top 100, you have to be lucky more than being over-talented. Tamira was overweighted, had no big weapons, her serve was very weak and she was choking in big occasions.
No doubt she'll be in the top 30 back soon but she absolutely needs to work on her global consistency and her mental toughness, she is absolutely brilliant when she's okay, but she's not, it quickly becomes pathetic. It's the same for other young talented players like Vaidisova, Rezai or Pironkova.
