I disagree about Laura's progression, to an extent. She's been doing a lot of the same things that drove us mad last year, but where previously she wilted under pressure at times she's done better at the big events and has come through some hard matches where she was playing poorly. It's slow progress, but it's progress none the less.

Heather, yeah this has been a terrible year for her.

Bullshit. Laura will never move like Steffi or Kim, but if she put in the hard graft she could move a lot better. There's no such thing as not being able to improve something. Doing so requires hard work, commitment to improving it but it can always be done. The question is, whether Laura is willing to do stuff she doesn't enjoy because it's what she needs to do to reach the next level.

There is such a thing as it not being worthwhile to improve something, or it being more worthwhile to improve something else but most of us can agree Laura being able to play more balls from better positions would be good for her.
I meant a big leap forward(solid top 30, winning a title...). Of course she played better this year than 2/3 of 2012
