Kuzentsova barely survived a player called "Mirza" right now. She's apparently from Asia. She doesn't have a very high ranking now, but she definitely showed potential to me. If I am right, since Kimiko Date, there hasn't been an Asian player in the top 10. This one might do it.

Maybe. She has potential. Her serve needs lots of work.

Yeah, she's weak around the net. Her serve seemed OK to me. But still, those pounding groundstokes remind me of Serena. :eek: She's got the potential to be a champion, no doubt. Whether she gets there is another matter.

I think Ai Sugiyama was in the top ten a few years ago

Sania Mirza is from India. She gave Serena a run for the money at the AO in reaching the 3rd round. She beat Kuzentsova along the way (I think).

She beats Kuznetsova in Dubaļ and Sugiyama was ranked 8 in the world last year ;) ( February 9th)

Yup.She can get there.I was wondering if she was a fluke after her recent poor performances since injury,but now i know she's the real deal.Has a few areas that need work,like the movement,and second serve.Her first serve is good,but needs to be more consistent(61% for this match was good).Volleying really needs to improve,but she's hard-working,has great attitude and a bag of talent,so she can definitely do it.None of those areas are impossible to improve.

I think she's hot too,and a lot of others too.You should see her in a saree.She looked gorgeous.She also recieved 11000 marriage proposals in her hometown of Hyderabad,has a bunch of stalkers(including some jailbirds :lol: )
and is a pin-up girl all over south asia,so i'm guessing you're not the only one... :hearts:

what is definitely against her being a champ is that she IS already a star in India. Hence, her successors are likely to have an easier track than the one (Mirza) that paved the way. The Belgian case where Wasserman and Devries preceded Van Roost & Appelmans followed by Clijsters & Henin, is a good example of this.

Wow. You seem to really know your stuff, judging from the first post in this thread.

And no, I didn't mean the part stating that Sania Mirza has potential. The girl is very talented :worship:

too early to say. have to see how she handles the pressure as her ranking rises.

She might very well make it into the top ten, allthough she says she'd be satisfied with top 20 :D
I think she's hugely talented and with certain improvements to her game she will get to the top.

I don't really know how far she can go.she hasn't had half the kind of training and exposure that most of the young players from europe recieve,so i don't really know how much better she can get once she gets that.She has improved hugely since her stint with Bob Brett,so with a full time coach i can only see her getting much better.time will tell,but i somehow have a feeling about her.....

Well, from what I have come to know, though parts of the former USSR such as Uzbekhistan and Kazakhstan are considered to be parts of Asia, Russia is still considered to be part of EUROPE. Or so I believe.

early to say! but not easy for Mirza and other asian players in TOP10 (including ATP players) anyway, I hope Na Li become a TOP10 player!! :D
