I expected her to dominate the tour for years and step into Williams shoes.

So yes - a top 5 ranking for a player with that potential is very disappointing!!

And I don't think people should compare her to Navratilova! Martina had that special determination Petra appears to lack. I saw her at Wimbledon and was disappointed.

Many years ago I thought Svetlana was going to be the next Navratilova and look what happened! I think Peyra will have a similar career: respectableish but overall disappointing.

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.

Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.
