I'm always a little bit confused with Irena because I do believe that she has the qualities to reach the Top 100 or at least stay strongly in the Top 150...
Is it a question of physical issues ou mental's...I don't know....
At least, she doesn't give up...At the winter time, she decided to stay for 4 months in Australia to experience a new kind of training organisation...
In an interview after her match victory vs Sirotkina, she said that she was in the right direction.
Her lost to Pervak, even if it's a loss, is still encouraging...being able to tie the level with her is positive all the more clay doesn't suit to her game. She's much more into fast surface with her flat groundstrokes and big serve.
I wish that she could find the level she had in 2012 (reaching n°138 at the WTA ranking) at least where she had pretty good result in Slams:
-1rst Rd Main draw after qualifying in Australia
-2nd Rd Main draw at Roland Garros
-Last Rd of qualies at Wimbledon and the US.
