Re: Jelena Ostapenko
From the bits I saw of her at the Australian Open, she is a very good player. But for her to reach the upper echelons of the game, there are many many many tthings to e changed. With her current game, she will make a career high of 300 IMO. Her forehand shanks often, she cant volley and her movement is good but cant hit the ball on the run. Her roundstrokes are great for pace but whenever she plays a big hitter who she cant get on top of, she loses because she cant defend. A ood player but unless she makes some changes, she wont reach the goals she wants. Her game simply has a limit unlike someone like ash bartys or taylor townsends. She also has to put too much effort into her shots to hit it hard because she doesnt have any easy power, meaning unforced errors can seep in.
