What surface was this on ? I am guessing hard courts, but it seems like a clay court match .

You mean they were promising. After a match that the poor little things are probably so knackered that they refused to ever play another tennis match. Seriously the thought of a 15 year old girl playing an almost five hour match in hot conditions is rather disturbing.

I know it's weird, but have a look at Gabriela's record, she's been quite impressive in 10K's last year.

But the match have had to be played on a very defensive way
