I would love a rematch here.
It would be more telling than any of her matches thus far, and a Victory would literally mark her as a 25k level contender.

Winning slams as an early title is just as fine as a late one.
What I'm not very keen on is when your title haul upon retirement is in the low single digits.

Re: Queen of Clay: Are these really the best clay courters we have now?

Homogenization killed the clay courter stars.

The year starts slow and grows faster
She will always be a first half player, and should push to peak.

Re: Is Kerber the worst one slam wonder ever?

She's having a great season, and we haven't even reached her best part of it yet.

Her upper body is breaking down and hampering her movement and gets.

Her legs are still great for running down everything but she's lost her mobility a bit.

Shoulder and rib injuries are tough....

Well, Kim and AI frequently played 3 matches a day at some point in 2013.

We'll see who get fucked over first.

Not until she pushes her ranking up another 100 spots, which will not be possible with these 10ks.

I think it's a home event for her standard and thus she's able to play the tourney happily without many costs, but she should reach the semis at least to make it worthwhile in points.

In this regard, it had big shoes to fill in and is yet to...

Domi is such an accomplished player.
Surely in the run for a surprise titlist in RG or AO in the next bit of time between the great Williams and the next generation.

There are actually a bunch of 'top seeds' since it's actually a set of 8 qualification mini draws, not a single tourney.

The upside is that you get to play much, much lower ranked players in...

Lucie and Timea for instance, should have been a force in the past year instead of comebackers, but that's...

It's quite amazing how she seems to crush opponents most of the time, but barely losses flat out, pushing her opponents all the way.
The RG dream is far away, but her comeback is going strong!

Nice contemporary angle.

Oslo's post puts in the money aspect to my reasoning (decent career with 500ish career wins means you're probably good to go post 30 and still have wins and endorsements)

@corswandt
So we meet again my friend

I mean, grass courts are slippery as well, right?

As for the OP...
