When Ana Tatisvili turned pro at the age of 15 in the year 2005 a lot of people said that she's the next big thing!
But she struggled for years.
She finally had her breakthrough this year. Some decent results but nothing outstanding.
2nd round Miami
3rd round Charleston
ITF title in Cuneo ($ 100k)
Does anyone still believe that she's got Top Ten potential or anything like it?? :confused:

She actually gave her Grand Slam Debut in Paris this year (3 sets vs Bartoli)! Never qualified for a Grand Slam before.
And she reached the 2nd round in Wimbledon (3 sets vs Wickmayer).

I think she'll get better.
Can definitely see her reaching the top 40 by playing a lot of clay MMs.

She definetly will get better. I can see her as a top50 player

The serve is her biggest problem. On fast surfaces, it just sits up there for the opponent to kill. If she improves her serve, she can definitely be a top 50 player because she can match a lot of the players from the ground. :)

She is a weaponless player with no forehand, serve or midcourt game. A poorman pushinacki is best way to describe her tennis. She has overachieved already so you have to her credit there.
