Re: Paula Kania - feisty sweetheart from Sosnowiec
Tracy Austin on Paula:
"There are so many good things about Paula Kania's game. She has great depth on her groundstrokes and she's ready to absorb power and movement. There's no doubt this performance has been such a tremendous boost for Kania. It's given her confidence and belief, and that's so important for players making that transition from the lower level. I really like what I see, and I expect to see more or her and for her ranking to rise pretty quickly. She's ranked 183 in the world - but that will go up in a big way."
"I like Paula Kania's body language. She doesn't get negative with herself, she just moves on to the next point. But Li Na is spending more time in the forecourt, coming in as she tries to win the point, and that's the way women's tennis is played these days. You don't want to give away any real estate on the baseline."
