I dont think Sloane's level of play has decreased. In fact she has improved a lot since last years RG R4, what im starting to see is that these girls are playing her way tougher than they did before. They either dont like her in the locker room or respect her game. She made a name for herself in January,so people are figuring out how to play her. She is still in the gray area trying to figure out how to win these matches against tough opponents who are taking it to her. i.e. Pironkova.

Sloane isnt the fastest starter in her matches, She cant afford to come out slow tomorrow working her way into the match, or it will be over fast. She has to hang in there from the start, than she has a chance of winning tomorrow.

Her match against Pironkova is soooo bad

I hope she wakes up tomorrow and realizes she can dispatch of this player so easily

btw, I don't think Megan ever cracked the top 10 did she? I remember her being very close, but I thought her career high was in the low teens. I could be wrong though and am too lazy to look it up.
she made it to #11 twice - and twice got injured at that point. (she had further injuries throughout all of her career. think Kanepi style. shoulder, back etc. that bad types of injuries).

your point is simply not a very good one, in that case - since Meg was very darn good against the top10. she has tons of matches that she pushed GOATs to three set tie-breaks and close matches, in addition to a whole lote of wins over them in comparsion to other #11 ranked players from recent times - namely Peer, Cornet and Vinci.

She may not have been a GS contender, and really, the reason we forget about her is that she was sub-par in the GS category, reaching a single QF in comparsion to our times where a whole lot of scrubs are reaching second week, then doing nothing the rest of thier careers.

she, on the other hand, was surely, at best, good enough to be #6-10 had she kept playing and not having to re-build her career every time.

Sloane, without her AO points is just a big mess ATM. she may improve, but she lacks in all departments in a potential match-up with Meghann.

If you meant to say - Sloane will probably win 6 titles of various levels and reach another 4 finals - maybe so - but that's Sloanes' abbilities when *fit* and *healthy*, whereas Meg did that despite her distrupted career.

if you would like an example of how she played against some PEAK-PIERCE!

her movement around the backhand balls, her abbility to come up to the net for more than just drive volleys and her point construction are those of a tennis player, not just a superb athlete as we see in sloane.

they are incomparable in my books, and sloane will be lucky to be a top player in an era that produced three bad years on tour (1990-1993, maybe even more - depends who you're asking).

i see not enough power on her serve, not enough patience in rallies, not enough domination against lower players and not enough fight on court.
she ain't no Davenport that she can just wait for ball to reach her comfort zone and whack winner - she lacks both technique and arms length for that.
