I think you are right so I'm not expecting anything from her this year including Istanbul Champ. She hasn't even annouce her new coach!! another long way back to her usual top shape again.
Take too long & Eugenie Bouchard may be ready to cope with her. Yesterday, the mouthpieces (correctly I think) observed that Genie seems intimidated by no one else in the WTA--not even Serena. The ONLY player she's faced looking like a deer in the headlights was Maria Sharapova--Genie's idol.
But she'll get over that. Watch out for Genie. (Good luck vs Venus Thursday)
Pretty sure I saw her on a player list a few days ago--trouble is no official lists. Wish they would get this shit out earlier. Qualies should start tomorrow ("tonight" from the West) & they don't have that OOP posted either.
UPDATE: BOUCHARD is on the Qualie OOP for tomorrow, Friday in Beijing. http://www.wtatennis.com...posting/2013/1056/OP.pdf
What is wrong with Radwanszka lately ?? This way she will never become a GS winner or # 1 player.
Ps; It finally is Serena's 32nd birthday today. Almost in retirement. Can't wait for that day to come. Champagne is waiting.
Yes,bring on that magic day when she retires. We are getting closer and closer to REAL women's tennis again. Sadly Maria won't be around much after Serena,if at all. But there will be others,Genie for one...
FABULOUS TROPHY !!!
Congratulations dear Petraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Congratulations Petra, well done
3th player i don't know ??? :)
You can see that tennis is low key for me at this moment ! Just noticed that Serena flew all the way to Asia to play the China Open. Good for her , may she win an other title .
