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.
Height is one issue and it definitely is a problem but having crappy draws is a big one too, especially because she usually gives the eventual winners more troubles than other players (obviously not the case the with Evert event). Shishkina is rather short too..
