What if Razzano finally became more consistent? How high could she get?

We know what the problem has been for Virginie for years... consistency. We also know that when on, she can beat almost anyone (and when off, she can lose to almost anyone as well...)
She has been able to get a few good wins a row lately, so I was wondering... if she improved in the consistency department, how good could Virginie really be? Top 20? Better?

I think even beter. Her countrywoman Dechy could get to No. 11 I think...frankly, I see no reason why she couldn't reach Top 10 IF she improeved her consistency.

I don't see Virginie being consistent with her form. I'd like to be proven wrong though.

Re: What if Razzano finally became more consistent? How high could she get?

Like Bam Bam I feel Razzano has a nice all around game but I don't feel she can just finish points on a wimp like most of the top 20.

If this was two years ago I might say she has a chance to get in the top 12 but the top 20 is packed right now.
She would be lucky to make the top 20.

Re: What if Razzano finally became more consistent? How high could she get?

Razzano's got a great game. People may disregard her win over Hingis at the USO last year but she played SUCH magnificent tennis, and I've seen strains of that the past two weeks as well.

But I'm with stupid ^, if she could crack the top 20 I'd be surprised. I don't think she has it in her, but feel free to prove me wrong.

Re: What if Razzano finally became more consistent? How high could she get?

Top 20 if she bacame consistent with her game, but its hard to see it happening, she's so up and down and hot and cold. She can be great, having some fine wins in these past 2 weeks, but not too long ago she lost to Meusburger in straights on grass .

She destroyed Hingis last year, totally outhitting her. She was going to toe to toe with Kuznetsova at Wimbledon 04 and ended up beating her playing some outrageously good tennis, and had Henin on the ropes in Miami this year. She has the game and the talent, thats for sure. The consistency and mental stamina are a different matter.

Re: What if Razzano finally became more consistent? How high could she get?

I remember watching the Hingis/Razzano match at the US Open last year and thinking ''this girl can REALLY hit the ball well''.....Hingis wasn't at her best....but Razzano really impressed me....if she played like that all the time she'd be top 10 I have no doubt.

Re: What if Razzano finally became more consistent? How high could she get?

I personally was impressed watching Virginie live in Los Angeles. I have no idea if she'll keep it together, but there's no doubt that she has a great game. She is quite a big girl and can hit with power. What impressed me though, is how well she changes direction of the ball, especially her backhand. She also has a professional look and attitude on court.

Re: What if Razzano finally became more consistent? How high could she get?

Virginie at her best is a joy to watch and for sure she has top 20 potential.

But as we all know she isnt consistent enough to get there also she wasnt lucky with injuries either.

I would love to see her in top 20 and great she is having great results lately hopefully she can keep it up this kind of form and consistency for long period of time.

Sheesh, don't know why everyone's always hating on Dechy. She's rock solid in her game and demeanor and makes so few unforced errors playing an old school all court game.

I wonder why she's n ot appreciated like Amy Frazier was.

Virginie hits too flat to be consistent.
