Re: Which of these players you expected to have better singles career???
Just about all of them actually. But for me, Dulko had the most potential. I remember watching her at the Hopman Cup a few years back and she was hitting return winners off Marat Safin's serve (granted, Marat was AWFUL in all his HC doubles matches and didn't serve quite as hard against the ladies, but still!). Add that to the fact that she has taken out a few big names in her matches, it's really disappointing that she's not really strung together a better career.
Mirza while I adore her, did pretty well for when she was healthy. IMO, it's fine to be a hard hitter with little variety. However, to get to the top (inconsistency aside), you need either a good serve or good movement. She didn't have either, so not matter how good her groundies got, she was never gonna go too far.
Never really followed Wozniack too closely, but it's quite surprising that she's plummeted so far down after a pretty good season 2 years ago.
With Vesnina, she has a decent strokes, ok serve and ok movement. However, her game is far too one-dimensional. She doesn't have overwhelming power or tactical prowess to really take it to the next level.
