i know i am too late for this, but my computer was down for 3 days and i just want to say how impress i was wth schwartz game, i saw her beat venus in french open couple years ago and she did quiet well beating monica in fed cup.
i do think she has a similar game to steffi graf but the lefty version! if she could handle her injuries i'm sure she could get better and get up in the rankings!

oh, I would compare her with steffi, but yes, she has a nice game and she will definitely do better in future.

she won a set against steffi in australian open 99! she really played great in that first set . I know she was injured a lot but a player who can give all the topplayers so much troubles should serious be ranked much and much higher!

I can see why you'd say that but in a way, I think Schwartz's famous shot is her backhand whereas with Graf it is the forehand - although they both hit the backhand with one hand, Schwartz generally comes over it and is deceptively flat.
Schwartz should be up in the top 20 at least with her level of talent, if she can just get rid of the injuries for good and keep up some consistency....
