It is very sad with her, two years ago she was top-20 and beat some great players and now? She is nearly falling out of top-100. Its sad because on good days she can beat so many players and plays great tennis, but on the other days she plays so terrible with tons of unforced errors. I wish she can come back again, what do you think?

I'd say top 50 at best at this point. She is far too erratic.

I dont know if she comes back again into the top-20, because she makes too many errors in so many matches. Now she seems to get a new coach, maybe its good for her? I wish she comes back very well....I stay optimistic and thinks she comes someday back into the top-30 (rank 22-30) ....

She still has the game to get back a lot higher than where she is now, at least top 30 if she can get on a few more hot streaks and cut out some more of the early round exits. Bottom line for her is that she has the weapons and she's certainly fit enough to get there, but now it's all between the head. She has to play tactically smarter, learn to play with a bit more margin at times and not just try to paint the lines and just skim it over the net every single time. Eventually people get to know your game, so she has to stop making so many easy errors because people know if they can keep themselves in the rallies long enough, she'll start to break down. Hope she can get it all together again :)

I think her time in the Top 20 is long behind her, but Top 50 is possible. She goes for these big, risky shots all the time, even when it's not necessary. When you have a completely open court, you don't need to hit the line at 100 MPH.

I really hope that she can get back to her 04 form again, she was devastating at times that yr to watch. Im not going to make any predictions on her but i think she may get it together within the coming months :)

If she stays healthy, then yes, she can come back again, how far? It depends on her goals!

She certainly has the weapons to get into top 30, its just using them effectively and in consecutive tournaments. Hopefully she will get on a winning streak in 2007!

Well based on her first match of 07 not much. :tape:

But I think if it all came together she could realistically be a top 30 performer. But she would need to improve a lot tactically, she couldnt do it just playing the same way she is now.

Hopefully with her new coach she can get back into the top 30
