nobody that i've talked to knows much about Kleybanova. What i hear is, she's a 16-yr old junior with wealthy Russian parents who lives full time in the US and has a deal with IMG to get wildcards into IW/Miami and hardly plays the rest of the year.

She is actually quite accomplished in juniors. She won the Banana Bowl (big junior's tournament held every March in Brazil on clay) in 2003 and 2004. She got as high as #3 in the junior rankings.

As for her game: her weapon is her two handed backhand, but her forehand can get a bit loopy. Also she's a pretty big girl and struggles with her mvement.

She used to be considered as tennis phenom, but kinda stopped developing tennis wise

Three 25K titles in three months? Kleybanova ought to be playing full time, because that's close to Top 100 level results. You have to strike while the iron is hot.
