She has been ranked as high as just outside the top 40? But can she go higher? :worship:

The way she has changed the way she plays, playing much smarter and going to net more often, top 20 I think.

Yeah i have noticed that :bounce: I love her groundies and serve too, both are very solid. The only weakness in her game at times is stringing wins together and her confidence on court

top 35 for sure, a peak in the top 20 could be possible, so I voted top 30:p

Top 30. I like her, but I don't think she has enough bite to make it higher.

Although if Sybille Bammer can make the top 20, anyone can.

DING DING DING we have a winner


but on the real she needs to find a way to be Venus or Serena, that would put her on the radar screen.

maybe top 35. But thats about it. she hits the ball hard but doesn't really have any special weapons. plus her movement is pretty slow.
She need to keep working her fitness.

movement is a strength for Harkleroad. Her shots are solid, even if she can be overpowered. Coming forward is good for her too.

I think she can be top 30, and she'll do really well this summer.

She really impressed me with her net game the last time I saw her play!

top 20

Top 30. I think she can knock on the door of top 20 possibly, but not sure if she could get there. Then again Bartoli is in the top 10 so i guess anything can happen.:p

she realy dosen't! if you compare her to other short or slight girls that shift about the court (sugi, chaky, domi ect), she dosen't have an explosive first few steps or the strength to play balls at the limit of her reach. she is solid but ultimately unspectacular, she will be lucky to break the top 30 though getting around the 35 mark is achievable if she has a ultra smart schedule.

She'd do well to get to 25-30. I'd be very surprised if she ever cracked top 20, but I'd like to see her do it.

Top 40. She needs a better serve. I like her netplay and her shots seem solid enough off the ground. Stay healthy.

Harkleroad will appear in the August issue and the Los Angeles photo shoot is believed to have landed her a 50,000 pay day.

She Should be a consistent top 20-40 player and breaking into the top 20 is definitely possible.
Come on ASH!!!

She has great movement, a decent serve, consistent groundstrokes (nothing special) and solid play at the net. If she uses her weapons well and can put everything together, top 20-25 is achievable. One of her biggest assets is grit, she needs to bring that to the court everyday and not lose hope when she's not playing at her best.

A huge shame about the cysts though, she was playing top 30 tennis before the break and I don't know how she'll go now.
