It seems, Carla Suarez's QF in Roland Garros had an effect in the young spanish girls.
Today in Barcelona Tier IV, Maite Gabarrús (1989, 432) and Leticia Costas (
1990, 541) advanced through the Qualys with victories over Top-200 players. They are promising players, in fact Maite was European Finalist Under 16 (l. to Cornet) but without great victories in the tour, now with Carla example they saw that IS POSSIBLE!!!
1R Leticia Costas (WC) def Hlavackova (5) 5/7 6/0 6/2

3R Costas def Jidkova (2) 6/1 0/6 7/5 (from 3/5 in the last set!!!)
