2011 Zvonareva = 2010 Jankovic ! ?

I donīt know. She made the Australian Open semifinal, but it felt more like a fluke than anything else. She gets torn a new a******* in the semifinal. Like Jankovic at the French Open. She wins a big title in Doha playing some really good tennis, but nevertheless you just feel like her game isnīt where it has been. Like Jankovic in Indian Wells.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.

Far too early to say yet. Let's see how she does in Miami.

It looks like she might be falling back a little now.
Her last 3 majors are F,F,SF, so lets wait until the next 2 majors come up.

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

But watching her play this year would you expect great things out of her at the other Slams this year, say at least live up to her seeding. The naked results this year would suggest it is possible, but watching her play I think she is below her level from last year and something is just a little off.

I have to agree she doesn't play the way I would like to see her play every match.
She showed she can play with alot of controlled agression in the Doha final.
but alot of matches she just plays like a brainless pusher. ;(

If she loses to Safina, which I think she will, then you can say this

Just have the feeling she has no clue what she is doing.

Hey! Irony or not? Assuming the latter, you were banned because of that? I told something like "Serena will not win something" and got 3 months ban and reminder that very next slip of mine will be permanent ban. If you're not making fun of me than we should make friends.

Maybe. I did expect more from her against Kim in the Australian Open semi final and she did have disappointing results in Sydney, Dubai and Indian Wells but she didn't have a great start last year either. Realistically we may have to wait until after the clay season to make any comparisons with Jelena. Traditionally Vera has not had great results on clay so things may be about to get worse for her.

Dunno. Her game obviously isn't where it was last year, but maybe it's just a little crisis she'll overcome?

If I were her, my form would be dipping too - Sergey would just be too much of a distraction.

This is only what, her 5th or 6th tournament? She made the semi final in Melbourne and won the title in Doha. She had a bad week at IW. Let's see how she does in Miami.

No, just no. 2011 Zvonareva is levels above 2010 Jankovic.
