After she won 10K and reached 25K in Israel I looked up at her career and saw she reached a best ranking of 4 in the Juniors and beat great players among the way, but in the Senior her career high ranking was only 156.

My question is: Why didn't she reach higher ranking in the Seniors? was there a specific reason why she didn't do well there?

Edit: another question :o I didn't see her in the Entry lists for the past few months, is she injured? :(

Thanks!

I think she suffered from anorexia or bulimia (one of the two) and was in the hospital for a couple of years. She just started to make a comeback to pro tennis this year and has had some decent results. She'll never be a big name, but she could get back to the top 200 ranking she had before her illness.

As to why she never really made it, Lenka doesn't have a big weapon. She's basically a Serra-Zanetti clone.

Oh :sad: thats horrible

So I guess she didn't reach far because of the illness, cuz even if she is "Serra-Zanetti clone" :) she can reach top 100 imo.
Thanks

It was anorexia she had..such a shame :sad: Apparently she was pretty sick during that time, but she's recovered now and she's playing at ITF level again, and she's had a few good wins, so hopefully she can rise up the rankings and maybe even make top-100 :)
