The tour definitly got more & more physical in the last years. Is that the reason why nobody can dominate the tour for a long time?
Clijsters struggles again with injuries, Henin re-retired, Sharapova is still struggeling with her serve since the shoulder injury and the Williams sisters have been out of action for pretty much a year.
Is the stress of playing tennis plus extreme workout too much for the girls?? Is the game to physical??
Where are the top players? Why are they injured all the time?
How is it possible that a player like Wozniacki with so many great weaknesses got to the top of the rankings?
Nothing against Wozniacki! She took this chance. But shame on all the top players who lost against Wozniacki!
But in fact: She didn't even beat top players! The only top ten players she beat this year are 30-year-old Schiavone and struggeling Jankovic.
Whenever she met a Top 20 player in decent form - she lost. That's why she won't win a big title. And it's going south from now on btw.
And still: She is the # 1 in the rankings far ahead of Clijsters and Zvonareva.
Why? Because she is playing a full scheduled season!
Well, maybe she is even playing to many tournaments to concentrate on the big ones.
Whatever, it is enough to be at the top of this mess!
The WTA-tour desperetly needs a star like Serena at the top again!
Kvitova & Co are not there yet. And to be honest I don't see many future stars right now other than Kvitova. Noone who could dominate Grand Slam tournaments for years.
