Sad to say, her prediction seems to be true. I thought Daja Bedanova was going to become a big star and it never happened.(but it's not too late I think for her)
There is a lot of talent right now, but the Czech's don't seem to have the big results yet than say the Russian brigade do right now.
I hope the current crop of Czech players can prove Jana wrong.
I've watched Daja lately and unless she gets a LOT better, she isn't going to get back to her former level, much less higher. It's a shame; she seems to be a nice girl!
Nicole, I was hugely impressed by her. She's on the way to big things.

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!
No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!
