Re: Next 'Great' Player
Of the current players, only Sabine is the one I hold out hope for. Neither Azarenka or Kvitova look like the player to take over from Queen Serena. If only Sabine can just pull her crap together. Please, if only she will learn how to compose and apply her power in a measured way like Serena - which is why I like Serena these days. Sabine is like every bbb, she doesn't see she has to build up her forces out there on the court, instead, she is rather simple minded, just have a go at it and hope screaming winners outnumber the howlers. Of course, it goes either way and mostly falls on the side of errors. Look at Radwanska, she consistently piles the pressure until people break themselves on her steadiness. If she or Zheng had Sabine's tremendous tennis playing physique and power. To me, Sabine resembles an enormously powerful sports car - unfortunately, missing a few screws here, a few parts missing there, an engine installed upside down ..... so she has these wild up and down, up and down spurts of power but mostly stutters and splutters along until she falls flat. One hopes Sanchez will finally be the mechanic to take her game apart and put it back in the right order.
