View Full Version : To go further, does Gajdosova need to look at how Kvitova has improved her game?

And control her phenomenal ball-striking ability? She's an extremely pure hitter of the ball, a good athlete in great shape, and I've seen recent articles where she's acknowledged that if she wants to make the next step in her career she needs to hit less errors. Does anyone think she can do that, and how do you think her 2012 will be?

...is this thread for real?

Jarmila could be top 20 max, in my opinion.

She already is like Na Li. She consistently plays like Li did after the Australian Open and before the clay season. :lol::lol:

That would require Gajdosova to have phenomenal ball-striking ability.

I didn't mean winning slams or getting to #2. I just meant, can she learn to harness her groundstrokes to make less errors, make her game better, and make her a more fancied player. She's spoken to the media in the last week regarding this, saying that if she wants to take the next step in tennis, that's something he needs to do. I was just likening it to Kvitova - amazing clean powerful groundies, but low % and inconsistent - Petra has obviously worked to find a practical middle ground - which is something Jarka needs to do this coming year if she wants to rise.

Come back here when Jarka makes SF in a Slam.

I love Jarka but like others have said solid top 20 is as far as I see her going at the moment.

She needs to sort out her serve, which is far too erratic, as a top priority.

She reminds me more of Aravane than Kvitty at the moment!

I'm not saying that Gajdosova will be as successful as Kvitova, or a slam winner like Kvitova. I'm saying that the next evolution of her game is to add margin to her shots and control her power - kind of the same thing that Kvitova has had to do to get more out of her game.

Don't make out that this is a trolling attempt, I'M SERIOUS! And I'm obviously not the only one who thinks so....

No, to do what Kvitova did, you need some actual talent.

Brainless. HORRIBLE returner. Non-existent shot selection. Not great defensively. Poor mentality.

Local, bad, with some suitable weapons and firepower.

Yup, she's easily one of the worst match players in the top 100.

(And I actuslly like her.)

Thread title change :rolleyes:

Her match against Wickmayer last year's AO says enough. She was coming off a title win and to lose like that to a garbage & generic player like Wickmayer is more than pathetic.

I don't even like her :lol: nut I think she's a very clean, powerful hitter of the ball - and she has gotten into pretty good shape. I saw her on the Hopman Cup coverage today and she seemed thinner than usual.

Maybe it's just the TV because Marion looked thin as well.

I think Petkovic would be a better role model
