    Iíll always have a soft spot for Woz ... when she was up an coming she was a good early round SP pick and never did me wrong.

    I grew to like Caro as she got older and less weird, but have always gotten the sense that being a professional tennis star was more her father's dream than her own...

    Also, looking back, I'm really happy, for Caroline, that she wised up and got over that desire to marry Rory McIlroy before it was too late. I'm pretty sure that would have ended in disaster. He is nowhere near the quality of person she clearly is.

    In this regard don't you think her personal life mirrors that of Kim Clijsters? First a long term relationship with another superstar athlete, then a break up and marrying a lower profile athlete. In both cases likely a better pick.

    While researching another post (see rankings thread) I got to know some players I've not been aware of and here is one.

    Jasmine Paolini



    Italian of partial Ghanaian and Polish descent, 23 years old. Reached the top 100 for the first time few weeks ago.

    If Taylor really gets into shape, watch out. The skills' set is already impressive. Getting to a few more balls and Martina Navs II?

    I guess we'd then find out if that kind of game style still works in the current WTA.

    I became aware of Jasmine late last year and tried to catch her matches.

    No, it won't. She will produce some nice wins but the FULL ATTACK style went out two decades ago, to say the least.
    But I grew up a serve and volleyer, and I truly began to admire Navs too late in her career. So if I only get to see a few more S&V points here and there, I will be happy.

    Looks like she's currently ranked 82, with a career peak of 61. With some extra speed and confidence, there's no reason she can't get into the 30-50 range.

    Why canít it work? Because returns come back too fast and too hard?

    Yes, that's the current consensus opinion. However it's not been tested by someone really good at it for a very long time.

    Would a kick serve be effective? And if a regular (flat?) serve is good enough, it should still have a good chance of being effective.
