Don’t exaggerate. I am not the biggest fan of Ula, but she won with Bartoli in Brussels, with Lisicki in Birmingham (on grass!), with Pennetta in s’-Hertogenbosch, with Hantuchova in Carlsbad, with Barthel at the Olimpics, with Ivanović in Tokyo.
And her results would be even better if she had not have to play so often with top players: in 1st rd in Sydney she lost to her sister, in 1st rd in Copenhagen – to her BF Wozniacki, in 2nd rd RG – to Kvitova, in QF in Carlsbad – to Cibulkova, in 2nd rd of Olympics – to Serena, in 3rd rd of Cincinnati – again to Serena, in 3rd rd in Tokyo – to Kerber.
The other thing is that the slang term SZMUL is very insulting and shouldn't be used by civilized people also for it's obvious antisemitic overtone.
