Well she did loose to a claycourter. But last year at this time, she won the Jackson, MS 25k on green clay and the next week reached the Dothan, AL 75k final, on green clay. She played very well those two weeks and seemed like she knew how to use the clay court to her advantage. I guess it was a telling sign though that she lost 2 and 1 to Shuai Peng (who isn't a clay fan) in the final of the 75k. Oh well, she has plenty of time to find her game Go Evgenia!

Big shock here at the first round at the B&L Championships at Amelia Island.
Evgenia lost 4-6 6-2 6-4 to Anabel Medina Garrigues
I thought the Russian teenager would go far at this tournament
You knew Medina was going to be a tough opponent in the first clay tournie of the year. It was just a bad draw for both players and unfortunately one of them had to lose first round. I'd say Zhenya's stock is still riding pretty high despite this loss.
