The least clutch top player?
Of the top 20 players whom would you never even bet a thought in when crunch time appears. Things could be going smoothly, playing great but you just know when the finish is near, it won't be pretty.....
I gotta say poor Ana!! It really is a shame but that girl has seriously become one of the WORST closers of all time, i rarely feel that way about a player but lately it seems whenever the finish line(or even a set lead) appears, you just know she is gonna get tight. I just never feel safe watching a match of hers, no matter the event or opponent. Just looking at her season last year, she has had about 8/9 losses where she faltered when time to close or she had a major choke...even routine matchs like Sloane last yr 3rd USO and Vania AO 3rd this year, she tried to choke and you just saw how patheticly she was able to close it out. And whats worse is often times she will be having a perfectly routine win, totally in control and playing well, and literally one or two tights games and the match has flipped(Makarova at AO,Larsson at RG,Wickmayer in Rome,Mattek Sands in Madrid.
Lisicki is also pretty bad, poor girl gets way too tight for her own good and for that reason alone i could never imagine her WINNING a GS Final...I'm sure many will say Kuznetsova, but she usually plays poorly to begin with so a choke isn't out of the question.
