Rita Grande playing the US Open

I thought she had retired but now I see her name on tomorrow's schedule. Has she even played any tournaments this year?

She had a pretty serious elbow injury that required her to be away from the tour for a full year. She just played at Toronto qualifying a couple weeks ago and that was her first match since the US Open last year.

She plays Michaela Pastikova tomorrow and it's a winnable match IMO. Hopefully she can get back into the top 50 and beyond where she belongs!

currently Rita is ranked like 1150, so it would be a real boost if she could win this match. i assume she's in on special ranking
