she got a lot of fans this year when she tore up the challenger circuit but i think a lot of people just got on the bandwagon because it was fun. but now she has beaten a top 10 player (dokic is top 10 this week). obviously karolina will get a lot of bonus points but also a lot of confidence. but the best thing about this win is that it was in the early rounds of a tournament and it was in a small tournament. i hate to see careers like stevenson's (although it is looking ok now) happen and they are caused from surprise results in big tournaments so the fact that it was a small tournament should mean that karolina won't get a big head about it. and it happening in the early rounds of a tournament will teach her to stay focused after a big win hopefully. but with such a good win at such an early stage of her wta career how far can she go? when she was winning on the challenger circuit i don't think people expected this to come quite so quickly, in fact i'm pretty sure some people even thought she didn't have the talent or potential to trouble the top players (and who can blame them? afterall it was the challenger circuit it wasn't the highest quality tennis). i didn't see the match but her talent could still be in question because dokic has been playing so badly this year but the way i look at it is even if she they weren't playing the highest quality tennis at least it shows that karolina has the mental ability to compete with the top girls.
