Laura becomes the real deal!

What shocking umpiring from Louise Engzell! Laura was robbed there twice! But she has shown she COULD be top ten in a year or two!

BUT she is prone to injuries

Re: Laura becomes the real deal!

You guys need to relax. Don't raise your expectations sky high based on a few good tournaments. We've all seen this happen before and not go anywhere. She still has serious limitations in her game.

Re: Laura becomes the real deal!

First of all it's very nice that she has this run. But then there were many players in the past that were considered to be great promises and then failed badly AHHRMMM SHAHAR.
I'm just really thrilled to see her playing at the moment.

It's actually one good tournament

I have to be honest, I'm impressed with the way Laura played against Clijsters and Li. A lot of more experienced and mentally tougher players would crumble under the pressure, but she didn't. She just kept bashing that ball and in the end she won both matches.

But yeah, it way to early to say that she is the real deal. Just remember how much real deal Rezai was...a lot of people have praised Larcher de Britto (or whatever is her last name) and where is she now? There a lot of real deals that ended up nowhere. Just take a minute, breathe, let her play few more tournaments. Who knows, maybe she isn't done with winning in New York, maybe she will have the same path like Kerber this year...or maybe she will pull out a Rezai

Nevertheless, when it comes to USO She's done great job.

Re: Laura becomes the real deal!

She has been building on this for ages, won matches at Nottingham, Eastbourne, Olympics and Palermo. I think also the fact that she had starting beating the beater players has helped. Vinci, Safarova and then Kim and Li. She has pushed so many of them this year Jankovic in Copenhagen, Maria Olympics, Schiavone Wimbledon.

Not even close to being a valid comparison.

So in that case Wozniacki was never a real deal?

Re: Laura becomes the real deal!

Wozniacki has had a great career, world number one. But Laura is not a pusher like Oudin and Wozniacki respectively. Laura is a shot maker.
