I do want Anna-Lena. That's a good team, and it gives Lena exposure.
Then when Lena has singles results, and they are going to come, people will know who Lena is.

I think Masha's results from these 2 tornaments aren't that bad.

At the Australian Open, Masha lost to world #7 in 3 sets.

At Tokyo, Masha lost to former world #5 in 2 sets and the first set was very close.

In both matches, Masha didn't play well in the last set - that's the problem that Masha needs to fix.

I didn't say she played badly. When you hype a young player as a future #1, and the most competitive since Seles, people expect her to win matches, Not just beat # 95, and that level.
I think Maria is a good player, but overhyped.

But Masha herself also has said that she wants to be a future #1.

She might get there. But right now, she's not a threat to win a major. This is different from a year ago. With juniors, and no one watching.
You can't tell the public you have a great player, and then she loses early in tournaments. People think you're a phony. They want results now.

I think Nastya can get to #3 in a few weeks if she was playing. There are so many injuries right now.
The important thing is to stay healthy, not overtrain. Maria is growing. There is no rush for her. That's why I don't like the hype. People shouldn't expect a finished product at 16.
Good night. I'm going to sleep.

Like you've said earlier, only Kim, Justine and the Williams sisters have been able to contest in the Grand Slams finals for such a long time already.

I tend to be negative too, Keith. I see the glass as being half empty instead of half full. But I'm surprised about your comments about Elena Dementieva not willing to give a full effort to reaching her potential. Would you clarify that please?

And thanks for your thoughtful reply to my previous post in this thread. I appreciate it, Keith.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

That's something Keith 17 and Maria have in common, they don't like Anna K.
And they're tall.
