One-time wonders: Achieving the unachievable

I believe that in no other sport the fans and the media are so hard on players.

Caroline Garcia: It Is Never Too Late

There are certain players that you know will have a breakthrough at some point. You can almost visualize them winning big tournaments and getting to the top of the rankings.
