    She's the french #3 behind Bartoli and Rezai. She's got game but can't seem to pull it together with consistency. Some say they odd way she users her flexibility to return balls is a liability. I say it's pretty wild.

    It's too bad she doesn't have more fan fare. She's got spunk and character. If she could break the top 20 again I think it would do the WTA some good. Not enough fighters and too many head cases.

    I saw her play the US Open Qualies a few years ago. She has amazing movement, she practically floats on the court. I thought she would be top 5. Next time I saw her she was on TV getting out-muscled by Serena. I think Cornet may not be physically strong enough to bash it out against the top ladies. She's got a very nice game though and has some fight in her. Fun to watch. If she could borrow Stosur's arms she could win a slam. :)

    She is sooo boring to watch. No power and no mentality.

    I'm actually kinda happy to find this thread, she's a player not talked about very much. Unless I'm totally confusing her with some other french player, I remember a pretty suspenseful three-set match with her and Ivanovic back when Ana was actually relevant. Cornet had a match point, and Ana hit a shot that just barely trickled over the net to save it. Cornet ended up losing....hasn't done too much since then unfortunately....

    Isn't it a very good reason?
