Her only issue is that she forgets she's supposed to make them look BAD, and decides to make them look GREAT.

Examples Diyas, Fichman, Tatishvili, Wozniak, Ula Radwanska the list keeps going FFS

Despite not making many winners, she's still an agressive baseliner, and she doesn't only win matches by waiting the opponent's mistake, though she can do that at times also.

Diyas - my 2nd favorite player!

But yes - I agree. When she plays bad, she makes her opponents look like Serena.
But when she plays well, she can scare her opponents into making awful mistakes because they know she'll get there and actually do something with the ball. Also, when she's playing GOAT, she is even good at net and doesn't hit her volleys right to her opponents. (Although I think that's why she's so GOAT at doubles - her opponents are used to having good volleyers as opponents so they're so confused when she volleys to them that they get confused and hit errors or already anticipated a different volley and are thus in the wrong place to return)

True.

But even without playing quality tennis she has few levels of her game. In last 2 years she played really bad tennis or even she played with no tennis at all. With no tennis at all you just can't force your opponents to play worse than you. Unless your opponent is Stosur.

Even if JJ doesn't make the YEC, we still have the 6-0 set against $ugarpova to take away as a high point of 2013

Her biggest weapons are her two-handed backhand and drop shot[51]. She also has a decent forehand and a fair net game, being able to hit effective drive, drop and swinging volleys. Her main weakness is her serve.


Obviously her dropshots are weapon. It's the easiest way for her opponents to win points

Seeds set for Tokyo. JJ number 7! How much do we have to pray Sloane get's Serena in 1/16 and Kvitova crashing against anyone! #fingerscrossed. I believe Tokyo will be solid but Bejing is my main concern.

But looking at it fairly JJ sucked IW,SF Miami and than Sucked in Madrid and at least Bejing from the 1000 pointers so it's SF they don't even have to play the tournament!

She could actually end up as number 1 at the end of the year without even winning a match as long as everyone around her retires
