my great grandmother also can be Top 15, if only she stays consistent.
Srebotnik is unlikely to ever be a real force in singles.

she'll never be right at the top because she isn't good enough at anything but she's does have a lot more ability than her ranking. she seems like the type who is going to injured her whole career and might make a charge later in her career ala testud but even then i think she isn't that great and the tour is getting a lot more depth to it.

I reckon she's got a bit of potential in her, she might surprise a few people this season! She's off to a brilliant start to the year.
She played two very long 3 setters today - which she was expected to lose, and came from behind in the final, aswell as the doubles final.
The girl has got talent!

Maybe top 45 ;)

consistency has been the biggest problem for her, but its a been a great week in auckland for her!

Shes at best a top 36 Player, Has never fufilled the potentional that was expected from her
Jan 8th, 2005, 10:40 AM
So many potencials in her game that have never been realized in full.
The reason: BAD COACHING!!!
Jan 8th, 2005, 10:46 AM
she has been much higher in the rankings, you know.
Jan 8th, 2005, 10:46 AM
I think she could be a top 25 (single) and top 10 (double)
Jan 8th, 2005, 11:08 AM
I say solid top 35. Has a nice serve and volleys, groundies aren't the best though - backhand can be a weak pt.
Jan 8th, 2005, 11:15 AM
I wouldn't say she had no potential at all, you can't say that of someone who did so well in juniors. Whether she realises it is another question.
I reckon she could reach top 20 with hard work, i just hope this new coach gets her arse in gear. At least Krizan is history.

Well done to Katarina for winning in Auckland - was a really big shock
Jan 8th, 2005, 12:38 PM
I always thought she was top 20 material :o
Congrats Kata :)

It's not a shock to see her winning in Auckland
Some people forget that Kata has already been top 30 , with wins over Clijsters and Hantuchova in 2002, and she will be top 30 again ! I hope it will happen ASAP and I wish she was less injury-prone and more consistent. But she's still young and able to kick some asses
I think she definitely has top 30 potential, and maybe top 20, which wd be so great !! :yeah:

I've watched Kata twice and doubt she'll hit the Top 20. She has a nice serve and is a bit of a net-rusher but doesn't really have a big weapon. Should have for a seed in grand slams and have 1 or 2 top wins :)
Seems to have more potenial in doubles than singles
Jan 8th, 2005, 01:16 PM
I think top 40.
Jan 8th, 2005, 01:35 PM
She's tall so she could use her serve better; great moving towards the net and playing volleys but awful movement around the baseline; great forehand - dreadful backhand
