While other, probably more marketable and/or cuter girls from her age group like Bouchard, Robson and Sloane got most of the attention Halep has just quietly gone about her business adding up those great results. Congrats to her, she's done well. But from now on her quietly going about her business days are over. She from now on will have a reputation and points to defend and every other player knows that she's a potential danger. It remains to be seen how she will handle all that. At this point I don't see a slam champion in her, but I didn't see one in Stosur either - let alone Bartoli. So you never know.

Contrary to most Sharapova fans I like Radwanska a lot. Her biggest problem is that she has a great 1970's game, but has ended up playing in the 2010's. Winning one isn't entirely impossible for her, but she will always be one of the dangerous outsiders rather than one of the favorites. Slams can be won from that position, but when the opportunity presents itself she HAS to take it. I fear that Wimbledon 2013 was that opportunity for her and she didn't take it, so...
