Ana, very disappointed in you. Rest up for YEC. I still don't see what everyone is raving about with Golovin though. IMO, she doesnt have much potential compared to the likes of Ivanovic, Jankovic, Sharapova, Chakvetadze and others. Maybe I'm just missing something :shrug:

:shrug: the thing is, even some fans of hers were writing her off for the top 10 until the fall. She has a unique game to any active player. I think she can go far. Shes 2-1 this year vs ivanovic now :)

Oct 17th, 2007, 08:36 PM
I think tati had HUGE potential, but so does ANA.

Tati has:
good athletic body (can get fitter!)
great ground game
very good serve
good anticipation
lethal forehand
not clumsey (??) @ net

=> all ingredients to make a great top 10 à top 5 player.

hat's more, in Mats Wielander, she has a great (tactical) coach aswell :eek:
Justine better watchout, cuz Wielander recently said something that he wants to acchieve with Tati what Carlos has done (is doing) with Justine...

I still don't see what everyone is raving about with Golovin though. IMO, she doesnt have much potential compared to the likes of Ivanovic, Jankovic, Sharapova, Chakvetadze and others. Maybe I'm just missing something :shrug:

The big thing is she's been hyped since about 2004. She didn't warrant it back then. She didn't have a truly outstanding win (as in, absolutely out of the blue, beyond the realm of most rational possibility) until the Fed Cup that year, and as much as I love Kuznetsova, lots of players can beat her.

Thing is, she hasn't gone away. Unlike a lot of hyped players (Rezai? Linetskaya? Bovina?), Golovin seems immune to personal problems and resilient to injury (she comes back from it as if she'd never been gone).

The first time I credited her with having real potential (more than just being, well, hot) was Charleston '05, when she was clearly the 3rd best player in the draw, and had the toughest draw as well. She's consistently done well on every surface, something that can't really be said for a lot players. She's also developed for herself a fairly nuanced game; in addition to having some power and mobility, she's able to change the pace of the ball effectively, take time away from her opponents, and uses her serve quite intelligently.

Is she destined for #1? No. Is she destined for top 5? Probably. She's young enough to make it big-time, but she's been around long enough to know what it takes. One big result at a major, and she's the third member of the Sharapova-Ivanovic it-girl elite.

What's going to slow her down? Those damn ankles. She's halted in the rankings for substantial portions of her career because she always defends her points (or betters them), but then injures herself right when the big events she could add to her ranking start. How many times has she been healthy for the European clay-and-grass season now, once? Hopefully, she'll make it. She's to engaging (and attractive) a player to lose.

in the last few weeks she has beaten 3 of top 6 players in the world very convincingly and showed a level play that was too strong for the dominant world 1 number. now she just needs to maintain it :D

An in form Golovin plays clinical tennis. she makes a very high percentage of aggressive first serve and uses her accuracy for the lines off the ground to dictate play. She shown an ability to dominant pretty much every player on tour with this game.

What you have probably seen is the out of form Golovin (usually coming back from injury) who plays a completely different game that's very tentative and makes her look like a pretty ordinary player.

Great job Tati! Is Bartoli next? Isn't there bad blood between these two?

They had a little "fight" in the french medias because Golovin criticized the fact Bartoli didn't want to play the fed cup for france if she couldn't bring her father with her...
Actually, Bartoli has bad blood with ALL the others french players!! :rolleyes:
As a french, i'm happy Bartoli is having a great year because she's helping promoting tennis here, but i really don't appreciate her as a player/person.
