she impressed me a lot against capriati, i saw her play dokic last year at wimby and although i thought she should have been ranked inside the top 100 seeing her play jen i think she has top 50 potential maybe even get higher if she works hard.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

The commentators were saying that she recorded the third fastest serve of the tournament behind Serena and Venus two years ago so I guess it's to be expected.

Still but Capriati deserves a as well because she returned some of those massive serves .

...when I turned it on she was 5-1 down in the first set, and I was a bit disappointed...I thought she was better than that...I'm glad she proved me right...
