Re: Grand Slam debutantes
Vika K. won Cagnes, but she has won upper tier challengers before only to fall in the same scrubbish mediocrity immediately afterwards. Haven't seen her play in two years (!) now.
Last time I seen her was against Dementieva RG 06. A match she really should have won and I still have it on DVD. Her game reminds me a bit of Sharapova without the serve. Plus she's a headcase. I think she definately could still get it together on the main tour. She's still only 19.
Again, I think her game is too high risk, plus her frying-pan doesn't help matters.
