If she could match her age of 34 then that would be great! I am very happy for her aswell. Its refreshing to see players like CRAYBAS and PRATT peak late in there careers

Yeah Craybas is great too, got to admire the players that have been on the circuit for so many years battling it out.

Pratts ranking will go up more than 10 places or so after this, somewhere between 58-61!

I'd like to see one, just one, of those people making fun of her for claiming to be "playing like a top 50 player" admit they were wrong. But this is WTAWorld, so that won't happen.
