What exactly is a definitive step up for Radwanska? She's already number 4 in the world.

If she becomes a Slam winner, this would be a step up, and she may be more than a Top 4 player.

Ok so what is the question of the poll? Because I like I assume others have answered who will do the best after Wimbledon? But is the actual question who is most likely to go to greater heights after Wimbledon?

It also kind of depends on the result of Wimbledon, because as you say if Radwanska wins Wimbledon then that is a step up, but if she doesn't then what?

Yeah, the question is who will do better after Wimbledon.
Radwanska might have new confidence and step up anyway even with just a semifinal, it depends from her.

Ok well Radwanska then.

I don't see how Radwanska will possibly gain any new confidence from just a semi-final though, firstly she was a finalist last year, secondly given how the draw has panned out she has to know how big a chance this is to win her maiden grand slam, and that anything less than the title would be a bad result.

Re: Who will have the best results in the first months after Wimbledon?

radwanska is the only one that actually shows some consistency on tour, the others are streaky as fuck. Sabine is basically a wimbledon specialist, marion got a really forgiving draw, and flipkins got the cinderella slam of a lifetime.

Re: Who will have the best results in the first months after Wimbledon?

Radwanska is the obvious choice.

I think Lisicki will back up her run here. People here are very hard on her. I know she was in dire form for some time, but it all began when she got injured early on last year and then the racket change to Yonex wasn't a good idea either. She actually played really well on clay this year by her standards (doesn't say much ) so I think the signs are encouraging. If she can build on this there's no reason why she can't be in the top 10 next year even if she loses in the SF (pretty much guaranteed she'll enter if she wins Wimbledon), especially when you consider the lower half of the top ten aren't worth a dime these days.

Flipkens will probably do fine too, she's been going from strength to strength over the past few months. I don't like her game at all but her hard work is paying off. Bartoli's always been up and down so you never know with her.

Re: Who will have the best results in the first months after Wimbledon?

Marion can begin to do better again I think. The whole messy coaching situation came to an end and I think her partnership with Thomas Drouet is good for her. They seem to have a very good relationship. They're working on her fitness and it will pay.

Same can be said for Lisicki, she already said she wants to continue working with Kim's former coach Wim Fissette after Wimbledon and that could work well. They guy has 3 slams as a coach.

Aga will continue to have the exact same results as always.

I've more doubts about Flipkens' ability to last and to perform on hardcourt. But she's having like a second career now, working with Kim and her team seems to do wonders.

All in all, I think the 4 of them won't disappoint too much. They all have the potential, and the 3 that were underperforming the last few weeks (years) seem to have found the right team at the right time. So why not ?
