I've been quite impressed, particularly with the strategies she tries to employ in her matches. They don't always work, but she's obviously working hard on strategy as well as her shots and I think that's going to be really important. I mean, there are loads of youngsters with good groundstrokes and serves, but what distinguishes Tatiana from the pack is that she's working out when to use what shot.
I think she ought to be able to make it up to top 15 next year and hopefully a big win or two. Eventually, I think she'll make it to the top 10, but I'm not quite sure about whether she'll win slams or make top 5.
I don't expect much from Tati, jus that she'll play her best game and be successfull and happy, she has all the talent in the world and is still improving it's jus a matter of time before she wins the big ones
Next year for the news season, I *hope* she'll win a few titles and break into the top20
"whoever said that money can't buy happiness, clearly didn't kno where to shop"
Tati will be BIG. She'll definately win at least 3 grand slams including the french open. She'll do great next year maybe a slam quarter or semi. In 2006 she'll win her first major. Overall pretty low expectations she'll win at her own pace.
♥ Number ONE in my heart ♥
i really think she has a good chance to make top 10, top 15 at least. as of when it will happen, i'm not sure. hopfully next year, but sometimes i worry about the "sophomore slump" that so many players go through. i really just Tati keeps having fun playing tennis, because thats what its all about.
My Impresion of Tati is that she will be a very strong top ten player for about 5 to 8 years similar to Mary Pierce but i think she will have some very good years where she can finish top 5. i think she will win at least 1 Grand Slam but is capable of winning maybe 2 or three. I can see her being the great rival of Sharapova and Kuznetsova.
I think she has the potential to be one of the absolute top players over the next 10+ years, winning several Slams.
If she steers clear of serious injuries or other problems I'm pretty convinced that she will be established in the top 10 within a year or two.
