Ok, maybe the title is over dramatic but isnt it interesting how there are a few promising players who broke through with wonderful Wimbledon runs and at a young age and each of them have had their careers majorly crash with burn outs/set backs (however u wanna think of these sories)..all very similar career paths hey..

The main players Im thinking of are of course:
- Jelena Dokic
- Anna Kournikova
- Mirjana Lucic
- Alexandra Stevenson

with one difference, anna K. choose her path away from tennis the rest of the girls where either forced out by people related to them or got injured.

Anna K has a chronic back injury and her downfall all started due to injuries...

Either way I still reckon its interesting!!

Meredith McGrath - true that, although she wasnt really a young promising player like the rest of them just a grass court specialist.

Kim only had a half breakthrough at Wimbledon, ironic her career will only last half of a normal career :tape: :(
