That's the best part: she can
be brilliant. It's not like she's limited by her talent and can only aspire to be a good consistent player, as Wozniacki... She has more potential than that, imo. Whether she fulfills it or not it's another story, but no doubt she's already a joy to watch

Yeah it's positive she goes through big matches against great players, so that she realizes where her own level stands and what sets her apart from a multiple GS champion like Serena.
Hopefully she will learn from this and gain confidence on her game, as she was able to keep up with Serena on the rallies and hit some beautiful winners.
She knows she has a lot of work to do, though. Hopefully the sky sports information is true and gets a little fitter
But I think serve is the main thing holding her back at the moment :/
