Do you think Mary Pierce will comeback dangerous as Anna Kournikova?

Both were injured, and Anna comebacked really threating everyone, first Serena in Sydney, then Justine at AUS Open. Then she finally defended her semis at Tokyo which is a tier I losing to Seles at three sets

Do you think Pierce will for example, will comeback at end of this year like Anna did at end of 2001?

And be ready for kick some asses at 2003????

Let's hope so, but what you think?


serena
townsend × rezaï × lisicki × vesnina
keys × mladenovic × siniakova × jankovic

I think that as long as she remains completely free from injuries, she will come back even stronger than Anna. She has that belief in herself, having won some major titles in her career, and i'm sure that she feels she SHOULD be right up there with the best of them. And barring injury, there is no reason why she shouldn't be up there.

No, I don't think it'll be as big a comeback as Anna's.

Firstly, because I don't know if she'll be able to stay healthy long enough to make a huge comeback.

and secondly, this is IMHO, what Anna did was AMAZING, and next to impossible. I can't imagine it happening again so soon.

But what do I know.

Best wishes for Mary, Get Well Soon.

I look forward to Mary coming back and also Lucic......both have enough weapons to get in the top 5, and one day theyll get there if they totally dedicate themselves again

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Nope, she's too old to make a come-back & she keeps suffering from injuries. I think she'll retire very soon.

Lucic in the top-5????

---> Good joke

We don't know.This is like her third comeback in the year isn't it? Let's stop adding pressure to her and jut hopes she comes back....when she proves she's injury free then I'll start dreaming of being a dangerous player and such...until then my expectations are not high. Welcome back Mary!!!

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

Please tell us what is so "amazing" about losing to every top ten player faced since her "comeback"?


IF(big if) Mary is healthy than she is not "too old" to still do damage.

An uninjured Mary is a force that few players on tour are capable of defusing....if she remains completely injury free (not so fragile one tough match will set her back) I have NO DOUBT she will be a top 10 player again

You're a meeaan meeaan person, Rollo.

Anna has almost always found it hard to beat top ten players.
And the fact that she stretched both Serena and Monica to three sets, is a great acheivement in itself. So, considering its meant to be a comeback from an injury that lasted for so long, I'd say it's been a DAMN good effort. so

i said 'if they totally dedicate themselves' they can get there...its no joke IMO! its serioud because both Mary and Mirjana must have motivational problems or something else preventing them from improving their conditioning and tenacity.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

I just hope she stays healthy. I don't see Anna as a threat but definitely a healthy/confident Mary is a huge threat

I am sure that Mary will be back. And it will be better than Anna, as Mary has won tournaments and has more experince.

I just hope that she does not get an injurys again. She does not deserve them at all !!! Should not happen to such a nice player !!!

regards

Mark
