Well, that was last year. Clearly she plays different at the moment, of course, if she can maintain that level. Time will tell. The change is obvious, especially regarding the tactics, last year she was playing very defensive. I might add that Simona even though she is little, she hits the ball pretty hard. I think it's too much to compare her with Azarenka or with the top 3, not that Simona is not talented like them, but there a difference regarding the natural construction, a fact that is important at this level. Also, Simona has a big advantage called intelligence, also she is very strong mentally, that can push her up in the rankings if she stays constant.
