I feel very sad about the loss, because there was such a big chance to Venus vs. Brenda in R2 and I'm sure Brenda really wanted a match against Venus (or also Davenport) again, because they both already been on the top when her "first career" finished & because it is maybe Brenda's last seaso now, she wants such a match once again.
Since her comeback she just played Schnyder as Top-20. I think Brenda is also back to get matches against these opponents like Venus, Linday etc. again, because it is something different for a former Top-10-Player in the 90's than to play some players - also unranked - in ITF-(Qualies) etc.
I wish she will get such a match soon again, hopefully. Would be also great to see her in TV again. I hope she continues with WTA-Qualies in next weeks, because with reaching MD she has seen, that it is still possible to do pretty well, despite it is pretty hard when her service is not working so well.
