Re: Annika Beck
Sorry but I disagree. With Lottner & Witthöft the question just is will they be able to maximize their potential. They may not, but there is a lot of potential there.
Annika on the other hand delivers results, the problem is that there's not as much potential to begin with than the other two. Her game just has some fundamental weaknesses, one being her serve that is at times very weak. The other thing is that she defends a lot and players that are mainly on the defense are bound to be figured out by their competitors sooner or later.
You got me wrong though, my post wasn't meant to criticize her at all, after all she's performing just like I expected and being in the Top 100 is nothing to shake a stick at. I was more critical of the expectations people put onto these girls who often go overboard, making results look worse than they actually are just because you expect too much.
Somebody who expects her to make the Top 30 might be disappointed by this, I'm not because I never had such high hopes to begin with.
