Improvements you want to see in your fave next year?

Serena- not a lot she can improve, but I'd like to see her more calm in tight matches. She's gotten used to winning so easily these past 2 years that often when she is pushed to 3 sets or sets beyond 4-4, she lets her emotions take the better of her. Also, hopefully she can sustain health for as long as she can. Her biggest rival are injuries.

What improvements would you like to see in your faves next year?

Kvitova- believe in herself that she can be the best, close out matches in two sets, continue with the fitness - come on girl show the world what you're capable of

Lisicki- stop crying and woman up!!! Focus on consistency both in matches and getting deep in tournaments

Li na - get that bloody second slam already

Petkovic- stay injury free!

For Serena's groundstrokes and aggresive game to return to the grass.
Willingness to come to net on faster surfaces. Willingness to slice on the grass.

Re: Improvements you want to see in your fave next year?

Ana, not a fan but she could do with a brain and learn to toss a ball.

Lisicki, construct points, be more calm and don't rush points

Kvitova, consistency, fitness, illness resistance, serve, return of serve

Halep, just keep doing what she's doing... and also improve her serve.

Simona [14] - Kasatkina
Aga [18] - Beck [2] - Kvitova [17]
Cetkovska - Bencic [2] - Gasparyan [1] - Cîrstea [1]

Re: Improvements you want to see in your fave next year?

Sveta - serve, brain, consistency. Usual stuff, really.

But on a serious note, I'm very disappointed at how she served toward the end of the year. Moscow was absolutely the worst serving performance I've seen from her in her whole career. Unlike many Russians, her serve has always been pretty reliable and a weapon when on. To see her struggling with it didn't sit well with me at all.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Cornet- When playing top player after she wins first not to fade away in second and third sets and a bit more power
