I have mixed feelings. I agree that it's felt like she has underperformed (other than Sydney). But again we should remember that she had been a journeywoman for years before her sudden rise last year. Even before Indian Wells last year, people were buzzing about her potential but the top ten seemed a long way off. So even with the low bar (which admittedly is quite low ), I think it's pretty impressive that she's actually been one of the most consistent players on tour. But yes I sure hope she can raise her level more too.To me, she's underperformed all year. No truly terrible loss all season, yes, though that Ruse blip was weird. But no real highlight either, eh? Being in the YEC race is totally meaningless, considering the low bar the women have set for themselves. But considering Coco was my pick to win this title, Paula beating to reach only her fourth SF of the year was impressive.
