    I don't think anyone argues for this here at all. We are thinking about long term possibilities.

    It was certainly hotter on the weekend than the rest of the tournament. But not only was Kerber not showing signs of the heat being intense, no other player in the singles or doubles finals even used one ice bag that I saw (and yes, I watched all 4 finals) suggesting that the heat was not that bad. It was her conditioning and she needs to work on it since she showed signs of struggling in both the semis and the finals.

    It's just an observation that makes me question many deep runs in more difficult conditions at this point in her career in particular on hard courts during the heat and humidity of the US summer. It's not a judgment of her long-term prospects, because as has been pointed out, this is something that can improve once it's worked on.

    Oh< i thought this was being discussed in the connotation of Sabalenka's expert-pick status at the Australian. Like, will Bianca be a favorite to win the French? Because a lot of peolel get carried away in tennis. I used to, but when once you've seen a generation or two cycle through, your perspective changes. She definitely has champion potential. I would be surprised if she doesn't win a Slam in the next 5 years, barring major injury or odd circumstances.
