Well, we're all waiting for her to come back soon. So let's talk about her and what we like in her.
I appreciate her a lot as a player and a person.
I first saw her play during Wimbledon 2005 against Mary Pierce, my fav player, in the first round, and she impressed me so much! She has a game that looks a lot like Mary's, with such powerful shots from the baseline. And like Mary, with the years, she has improved a lot, adding more stuff to her game, like dropshots (see the hantuchova match in USO 2007) or like she goes to the net more and more, though she is not totally at ease yet there.
I like her forehand shots, which are among the best ones in women's tennis for me. And her backhand, I saw her practicing it a lot last year, in Luxembourg and Zurich, and she can really make a difference with it (see the match vs Serena in Stuttgart). To me, she is at least a top ten player in the coming years.
And I also like her out of the court, she is really nice girl and smiles a lot.
The only little thing that annoys me sometimes (sorry Julia!) is her attitude on court: she is not positive, even when she does good. I'd like some more smiles!!!
And you, what do you think? Why do you like her? How far do you think she can go.
