The "What's Wrong With Her?" Thread
Here we can discuss WTA players that for whatever reason just can't seem to get it together. This could be due to a minor or major slump, inconsistent results, mental fragility, not living up to the hype, a combination of things, etc.

Awesome! A player bashing thread! WTA to boot. Subscribed for the lulz.
Sharapova (screams too much, neighbors might care.)
Kournikova (doesn't know how to play tennis, other than that perfect.)
Kuzzy-Never seems to have a game plan. She seems to think she can outhit and retrieve most balls, but sometimes you have to play to players weaknesses. She doesn't do that.
Ivanovic-I thought was overhyped from the start. Never did see what they saw in her.
Chakvetadze-I don't know what's wrong with her. Maybe the expectations are too much for her.
Hantuchova-struggles with nerves too much. May need to see a sports psychologist.
Kirilenko-maybe she doesn't have enough power. Don't get to see her much since she goes out so early.
Vaidisova-a dang shame.
Safarova-totally disappointed in her. Maybe Berdychitis is rubbing off on her. Afraid of one's own potential.
Mirza-haven't seen her since I saw her live.
Sharapova (mixed feelings)
Kuznetsova is a headcase, plain and simple, her one slam was a giant fluke and whenever she is in a final 90% of the time her game goes south for the winter.
Ivanovic hasn't been able to recover from whatever happened to her thumb. Chakvetadze and Hantuchova are seemingly scared of the top, the play well until they get to the top ten then fold horribly.
Kirilenko doesn't really have anything special about her game.
Vaidisova has her mind on radek or something.
Safarova and Mirza...no clue at all.
Dementieva needs a complete overhaul of her serve.
Petrova needs to do something to, she hasn't ever been a complete package, she needs to learn to manage her emotions on court because once she gets angry its over.
Szavay seems to be spiraling to...don't know why though
Jankovic (probably serve, volley, slice, drop shot.......everything especially her face)
Ivanovic (her fist pump really irritating everyone)
all it will take is for one WTA player to come in and be dedicated to playing, and be mentally strong, and she will dominate for a few years and make everyone else get it together. it's inevitable. it is a really weak time for the WTA, but i'm not a WTA basher at all. I'm looking forward to someone stirring the pot so the field strengthens up.
OP had me chuckling!
But what do you mean about Mirza acting like a diva ?? (puzzled)
I think the organizations supporting the WTA are enabling all this flakey behavior by convincing the ladies that they're weaker in general. They get equal prize money at the majors, yet only play two out of three set matches. Yes, I'm only half joking, but I couldn't resist!
Oh, and by the way, Nadia Petrova and Anna Chakvetadze? Those two are just straight up bananas...
i dont see what is wrong with ivanovic boyfriend choices aside! everything looks perfect to me...:)
^^^ I debated about Bartoli. I kind of gave her a pass for making the AO QF, but in reality she deserves to be on the list. No titles in over two years, terrible 2008, still on the hefty side, and still has her crazy dad as coach. I'll update the list later.
Dementieva has a weird grunt when she hits the ball.
