  • Finally Aryna Sabalenka is back and won a title :super: She's fearless and I see a good potential in her but it seems she can't get it together. On the other hand it's painful to watch Garbine Muguruza lately, she doesn't have the mentality to have a top player :gone:

    When Sabalenka is good, she's scary good but she plays with so little margin for error that I don't know if she'll ever be a consistent top player. She definitely has the game to blast her way to a couple of grand slam titles though. :super:

    I really agree , Ostapenko has a similar style ( with a much worse serve) and she peaked at that Roland Garros but then... :gone::D If Sabalenka can peak during a Grand Slam, then she can make some damages for sure :box:

  • Justine Henin is my favourite player of all times, so naturally I LOATHED Clijsters during her her first career :rolll: However, when she came back, my enormous disdain turned into slight annoyance and finally relative indifference, so I don't think I'll feel strongly about her this time around either. Still, I'll have to wait until I see her on court again before I can decide how I feel about her :rolll:

    I know this is late but I just read it and found it quite funny considering she always crushed the Serbian girls. I always remember her beat down of Ivanovic in the French Open final, Henin was just untouchable on clay.

  • Bianca Andreescu withdrew from the Australian Open due to her knee injury. ||


    I hope she can get over her injury-proneness soon because she's the most exciting player to appear on the WTA for a while imo and it would be really sad to see a potentially great career ruined by injury.

  • Just to let anyone know who may have lost track of her comeback, Kim Clijsters will play her first tournament back next week in Dubai. This is a strong tournament and she’s been drawn against world number 8 Kiki Bertens in round one. As she’s 36 and playing her first match for 8 years, I can’t imagine she’ll win but if she can make the match even slightly close then I think this should be considered a success. I have never been a massive fan (she always beat my faves) but her talent is undeniable and she seems like a really nice person so it would be amazing to see her do well in this comeback. Good luck, Kim!
