Kenin is just so small. She's going to have to spend a couple of years in the ITFs before she makes a splash. Unfortunately, size plays a big factor. I'm not saying you have to be 6 feet by no means. But she's just 4'8". Thats way to short to compete against top players. Its a shame she didn't have a strong growth spurt. She's a great player just too short.

I saw her Dad on tennis channel and he's short too.
