Seeing that Kerber is a natural righty, I don't think there is that much room for improvement. Nadal's serve isn't the strongest because of this, too.

My former insistence that Kerber would be a flash-in-the-pan was just because I found it so hard to believe that someone who'd been such a "local" for so long could play so well God only KNOWS what she was doing in all those years before the US Open 2011. It's not even like she occasionally produced big upsets once in a while out of nowhere like Li and Stosur did before their late-career breakthroughs.

Imo I do think she has some upside left. I don't realistically see her as a Slam champion like some of her more overzealous German stans would have us believe coughpatrickcough , but I do think she potentially has a Slam final or two and even greater consistency potentially ahead of her if she improves some things over the offseason.

Nadal improved his service a lot.

Joke thread? Kerber easily.

I also very much doubt we've seen peak Kerber yet.

Hantuchova was one of those odd ranking outcomes... at her best she really should have been relegated to the bottom rung of the top 10.

Chaky overachieved... point blank. Like Hantuchova she honestly shouldnt have gotten higher than maybe 7 or 8 in the world.


Melbourne: l. R32 #3 V.Williams 6-3 0-6 4-6
Paris: l. R16 #6 Seles 4-6 5-7
Wimbledon: QF #2 S.Williams 3-6 2-6
New York: QF #1 S.Williams 2-6 2-6

Hantuchova also won Indian Wells. SF in Montreal, New Haven, and Linz.

She had a 6-10 record vs. the top ten.

Hantuchova is always so overrated in polls here.
