look over at the russians. petrova, bovina, dementieva (if she fixes that serve), zvonareva, kuznetsova, sharapova, lina k, safina, kirilenko and douchevina. they all have loads and loads of talent. some have already shown top 5 or top 10 potential (i.e. petrova, bovina, zvonareva) and myskina and dementieva are already both top 10. zvonareva is on the verge of the top 10.
hantuchova, dokic, schnyder, casanova, stevenson and daniilidou all have a lot of talent. vakulenko, and stosur have a lot of talent but are yet to mould it.
there is a lot of talent out there, so the problem isn't lack of talent. i9s the transition from being a medicore player to a top player too hard at the moment? it could be the problem but what can we do about it? people want to see high quality tennis and the top stars want to win so it's a catch 22 situation.
there is also a group of young players who haven't yet hit the tour in a major way yet like krajicek, kleybanova, vaidisova, timea b, kutuzova, lisjak, haynes, gullickson and a few others i can't remember and some that i can't spell.
i was getting bored of the williams domination and i am now getting bored of the belgian domination. fans are never pleased completely we keep changing over minds and when things happen that we want then we don't always like it.
but as for needing more champions, well there are usually only a small number of champions each generation. just cause 2 get injured we can't expect 2 other players to step up and replace them, we may want them to but it won't always happen.
so, the talents there we just have to bide our time.
Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.
also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.
