Great effort.

Good luck for later this week (when Wimby WCs are announced), hope your name appears.

Amanda had a MP at 6-5* in the tiebreak as well. So sad...

Well done Aravane, scaring scenario in the third set but still alive with her fighting spirit!
I hope that Elliot & Broady get WC at Wimbledon, Fitzpatrick has done nothing since her SF last year in the juniors draw. Sometimes rankings shouldn't be taken into account, those 2 youngsters are more deserving!

Amanda so close buthuge fight, let's hope this will inspire wimbly's WC commitee

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
