No offence to Sandra or her fans...but how is this girl still TOP 100? I don´t remember her being good even on her favourite tournaments (25k´s) nowadays

Irina has just been phenomenal since turning pro. Except for IW, she has really stepped up at every big tournament and gotten some wins. I think and hope that she will crack the top 100 soon!

What does Irina play like? She isn't very tall, so is she just a consistent counter-puncher?

I can't find a better word than "journeywoman" to describe this woman

I don't understand Zahlavova. She certainly seems to have potential, but her scheduling is bizarre and she can't seem to keep the ball in play long enough to win matches.
