Maria José Martínez Sánchez is her full name
Yeah, she almost hit Venus's head
Also, she had been playing shitty 2002 and 2003 seasons, and starting 2004, she decided to stop for a while. She's always been a little mental-case, but also she's got the quality to get to the top 100 or even higher, only if her forehand worked...
(which seems to start running now)
Last year she decided to come back, she played two tournament without much success, but then she won the third she played at Vigo 10K (played on hardcourts) and has started to play competitively again. In not much more than three months, she went from being unranked to be in the top 380, which is quite a success. With just one more tournament in doubles, she almost finished top 100 in doubles.
Hope that her tennis career can last a bit more in the elite
