i guess it's not fair to call that "phenomenon" most ridiculous. i can tell you a huge number of players whose careers are/were the same cycle. clay is not her favourite surface - a qf here is a good result imo.What's not fair?! Her entire career is a cycle of making the later rounds of WTA tournaments and then losing to players ranked in the 500's.
That's very true.unbelievable that she fought and came back from such a bad injury last year, played herself into great shape and form and now reaches her first Tour-semifinal at the age of 28
that's just great
