Kuznetsova, yes.

I've come to notice you are a troll and clearly a banned brute reincarnated.

Kuznetsova--if she gets her head together although she has fallen off the radar quite a bit.
Jankovic--seems hopeless. Only if she starts caring again.
Safina--we'll never know when she'll recuperate from her injury, and if she does, what kind of era the WTA would be in
Ivanovic--haven't you heard? her form now is better than her RG '08 form.. (but in all seriousness, it really depends on how cooperative and willing Ivanovic is)

Kuzzy and Jankovic are your best bets. They can still play good tennis if hey wanted too.

Another blind fanboy refusing to admit the truth about his favorite(s). Face it. The player in your signature had ample opportunities to win slams. She didn't. Thus she isn't a champion material.

I think JJ will find her form again. Kuz will be on and off. Dinara it all depends on her back. As for Ana, she did find her form in the last few months last year so I still believe she can get it back as long as she can find some stability with her new coach.

Apathetic Ana Ivanovic fan.

Re: Will Kuznetsova, Jankovic, Safina and even Ivanovic ever come back to good form?

Kuznetsova - Maybe, although she's always been an inconsistent player. I think in 2008 she made something like 5 finals and lost all of them. She needs to do something quickly though, or make a deep run at a slam because time is running out for her.

Jankovic - I honestly don't believe she will ever get back to her 2008 form. She's clearly a good step slower than she was, never slides anymore, and gives up on a lot of points. She also seemed to hit the ball more aggressively and cleaner a few years ago, and most of the time seems to be content to roll a forehand half-way up the court. Her backhand also appears to have deteriorated, and she no longer seems to have the great balance she used to have off that wing. She constantly pulls off the backhand down the line these days, resulting in her dumping the ball into the next. I still believe she retains her great ball-striking ability if she gets into an aggressive frame of mind. If she started playing more aggressively, and looked like she actually gave a damn out on court, she could cause troubles coupled with her new decent serve.

Ivanovic - Still a lot of time left for her, but I think the solution is simple. Hire a coach and stick with them.

The future is difficult to predict. Still, I feel certain Capriati will not be making a comeback, nor Margaret Court.

Kuznetsova has the weapons.

Jankovic has lost a step, the will to grind out matches as well as the hunger to win; plus as mentioned she didnt exactly have a champion's mentality to begin with.

Safina is semi-retired with back issues, its hard to see her even play tennis again.

Ivanovic is too busy being delusional.
