She isn't that good as you thought and it is good that you finally realized that.
TBH, my expectations for this season was a top 20 finish. Given the position she was in at the start of the season, i thought that was a good expectation. But she'll be lucky to finish top 50 at this rate.
I over-rated her a lot, i know. I knew then in some cases, but i think most of my comments were because i want to see her do well, and i believed she could do really well. During that slump in the 2nd half of last season, i was waiting on the day where she could return to the form she showed during RG and Wimbledon, but now i'm thinking that just could have been the form of her life and that she's already reached her peak level. I have little to no hope and expectation in her anymore, and you could say that it's brought me back down to earth.
. But i'll continue to support her
You guys were right, and i was wrong. Everyone over-rates their favourite teams/players, but i was way over-board with her. Now i've realised that she just isn't as good as i thought.
