If she plays like did vs. Davenport I think it's possible. Amanada has a nifty volley, with Lori as coach she will be urged to use it!

Please, please though Amanda-cut back on playing so much. She suffers lots of early upsets, especially at slams. At her age she needs to pick her spots. Forget the Budapest and Mexican Opens and concentrate on higher tier events!

I don't think she'll ever make it back into the top 10...I'm under the impression she will announce her retirement soon...Don't get me wrong, I think she's a great player but her game just lacks the power that is so important nowadays...How old is she ? Has she mentionned retiting in any recent interviews ???

she is 30, the oldest player on the singles tour now after nat. retires, but she said she is going to play a year or more, she said it depends how she plays, i think she can, no one has the motivation she has, did you see the coetzer davenport match coetzer is not as weak as she appears, she hit a pretty heavy ball against davenport so...

I agree Amanda does hit the ball exceptionally well , and she can hit the ball "HARD" enough to do the damage...sure she hasn't the Capriati ripper of a forehand or Venus' big backhander , but what she does have is enough to beat most girls on tour...

When AMnada mixes up the play and net rushes...she can cause alof of headaches and match the bigger hitters , ie Aus Open shouldve ebat Venus IMO.....plus this was a while back but against Dokic when she beat her 6-0 6-1 in hopman cup , and also steffi at berlin 6-1 6-0? <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

as long as she schedules well and ensures she has time between events to recharge her batteries......im sure we can see her back near the top ten , possibly inside it and perhaps the quarterfinals of a slam or two...

good luck in 2k2 mandy machine! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

the spots in the top ten are too heavily fought for to amanda to get back in it, but she can still surprise us a few times <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
