To go further, does Gajdosova need to look at how Kvitova has improved her game?

And control her phenomenal ball-striking ability? She's an extremely pure hitter of the ball, a good athlete in great shape, and I've seen recent articles where she's acknowledged that if she wants to make the next step in her career she needs to hit less errors. Does anyone think she can do that, and how do you think her 2012 will be?

...is this thread for real?

Jarmila could be top 20 max, in my opinion.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

She already is like Na Li. She consistently plays like Li did after the Australian Open and before the clay season.

That would require Gajdosova to have phenomenal ball-striking ability.

Re: In 2012, can Jarmila Gajdosova do what Petra Kvitova did in 2011?

I didn't mean winning slams or getting to #2. I just meant, can she learn to harness her groundstrokes to make less errors, make her game better, and make her a more fancied player. She's spoken to the media in the last week regarding this, saying that if she wants to take the next step in tennis, that's something he needs to do. I was just likening it to Kvitova - amazing clean powerful groundies, but low % and inconsistent - Petra has obviously worked to find a practical middle ground - which is something Jarka needs to do this coming year if she wants to rise.
