I'm trying to be an optimist towards her. She really made some major strides recovering from her injury. Besides, who expected her to win a bronze (took Sharapova's Olympic slot due to injury), make the YEC finals (took out Ivanovic, Kuznetsova, JJ, and Dementieva), and AO semi-finals (lost in 1st rd in 2008 )? I want to believe she's more relaxed and composed. She's got the weapons to win a major. Whether she wins one or not remains to be seen. Since she didn't go far at any majors in 2008, she has the potential to gain a ton of points.
I'll add her to the list, per your request. Though I don't necessarily agree she belongs there, not yet.
