Going through another horror patch......did this a few years back and then a few years before that where she just loses and loses....for not real reason....don;t know of any issues or injuries.....absolute waste....she is a good player, great groundies......it shouldn't even be aboutr holding up a run of losses, it should be about her cracking the Top 35 with her talent.....she just needs to get fit and focused....I am surpised we are in a little rut and an attitude of not xcaring (like 2 years ago where she was pathetic in a loss to Sugiyama at the Oz Open, didn't even care) as when i watched her lose at the Oz Open to Kleybanova this yar, she really really tried.....it is a shame, out of Top 200 the way we are heaindg (what, has she won 2 or 3 matches this year??) No disrepect to Panova by the way, I am sure she played well...just thought Sofia coudl do better

this is just Sofia's way. She had a few huge opportunities to knock off tops players in big tournaments last year when she was heading back to the top 50 (perhaps both times Jankovic) but choked. I tend to think that Sofia just has a pretty good life back in Sweden and simply doesn't have the fire in the belly. clearly when she plays well she's a top 40 player no problem. I suspect she'll hit her stride again eventually but i don't ever really expect her to be a consistent tour player. she's in the Benesova category in my opinion (perhaps with a little less talent and she's not left handed which is a big turn off for me).

Strange how Jelena's and Sofias paths keep crossing. First Jelena defeated Sofia in AO girls' final in 2001, then last year they played two long matches in 3 sets and Jelena won both. And on top of that Sofia complained that JJ stole her massage appointment after their USO match. :spit:

Sofia is very talented, IMO. Hope she can find some good form soon. :hug:
