Yeah. Well she won one ITF title but here's her 2012 in review.

2012 - First Top 40 season; SF twice at Strasbourg (l. to Schiavone) and Washington DC (l. to Rybarikova); reached 4r at Roland Garros (first Grand Slam 4r; l. to Stosur); also 3r four times (incl. Wimbledon and US Open) and 2r four times (incl. Australian Open and Indian Wells - l. to Kerber 26 75 64; led 62 51 w/mp); fell 1r six times (incl. Carlsbad - l. to Oudin 16 76(6) 60; held 2mp at 6-4 in second set tie-break) and in qualifying three times; made Top 50 debut on July 9 (after Wimbledon; rose from No.59 to No.49); withdrew from Seoul, Beijing, Osaka and Luxembourg w/left abdominal injury.
Given that, it does seem like she's getting over-hyped. She might live up to it but she isn't there yet.
