Simona knows what she must do, and for what i`ve seen is : Serve well , do less unforced errors , eliminate double errors and construct your point until they give u an opportunity to do a final attack. Remember , Simona is also great at making breaks too, not to mention the infinity ability to chase the ball and put an extra ball every time in the opponent court side. She also has improved her volley ball and her approach to the net. Day by day Simona shows us what everybody could see, a huge talent which must improve , and she show improvement in something at each tournament. I don`t count where she was injured or Stuttgart ( almost the same thing , she was injured from Fed Cup ).

The best thing about Simona is that she is still improving.

The sky is the limit for Simona. And dunno about u , but every opponent who face Simona knows this for sure . And facing Simona prob is kinda scary.
I agree with most of that .. I don't mind playing safely some times during matches , especially when this giving you leading and the opponent destroy herself with errors .. But in some matches this year even on hard .. Simona was passive from the begining even when she was down in the score .. And in Madrid let's not forget she lost the first set against Lisicki and Petra and she could have lost .. the passive game didn't give her those matches .. I agree that the clay doesn't help Simona to be very aggressive , that's why I think that the faster courts is more suitable to Simona aggressive game as a top player ...
