She might never be world class again if she does that. After she ended 2012 with 3 finals in her last 5 tournaments, she trained for 2013 and started losing to Pervak, and had an awful January.
She isnt playing terrible. She led Voegele 3-1 in the 3rd, led this match 4-0 in the 3rd.
She doesnt finish, or like Muguruza, Kuznetsova losses, she started those slowly.
I think a few wins and a soft slam draw and she can be back in a slam QF, even on clay or grass.
But she has to get settled in her style of play and mental focus for the 9 months of hardcourt that are coming after Wimbledon. She's already shown she is excellent on hard court and there's no reason to just give that away and become a mediocre player
Just being in a 3rd set against Voegele or Jovanovski was a bad sign even if she had been able to finish those matches. Neither of them were big threats to the top players as Voegele had 0 top 15 wins prior to Charleston this year and Jovanovski had 2 top 15 wins prior to Rome this year, the last one being in Eastbourne in 2011. They both weren't big threats on clay with Voegele having only 2 top 50 wins on clay prior to Charleston with the highest ranking being #40 and Jovanovski having 1 top 50 win on clay prior to Rome with the highest ranking being #46.
The Babylon project was our last best hope for peace. A self-contained world five miles long, located in neutral territory. A place of commerce and diplomacy for a quarter of a million humans and aliens. A shining beacon in space, all alone in the night. It was the dawn of the third age of mankind, the year the great war came upon us all. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2259, the name of the place is Babylon 5.
