Evie has great shots and confidence but she is her own worst enemy
particually gets bad draws at most events and has shown promise ina few showing against top players but needs to be more consistent throughout her matches nad not choke on crucial points

Hard to judge. Her talent (1st serve, forehand) is offset by some big weaknesses (Mental and 2nd serve)
However with those glaring weaknesses she nearlly pushed top 60. :confused:

I've gotta say Evie's second serve has improved markedly from a year or two ago...but it's still a weakness. It's not the fairy tap it used to be which is good.
Evie needs more aggression in her game and more self belief. She obviously has talent and can play good tennis when on, but she lacks the killer instinct and that will always hold her back. I can see her getting back to about 60-75, but anything higher looks unlikely...unless she is prepared to make BIG changes to her game. Let's wait and see. At 23, she is not getting any younger (one of my many cliche statements of the day). She's established herself as a solid top 120 player over the last 2 years and has my respect.
I can't be bothered commenting on the other players (too many threads), so no offence to them...Evie is my fave, so she got preference :p
