Katie isn't good enough for the main tour. Her career record shows that she belongs in challengers.

Re: RG R1: J. Craybas def. K. O'Brien 60 46 62!

If you qualify for the main tour events, you're good enough for them. I actually give a lot of credit to O'Brien, who appears to have worked really hard to maximize her game. She stayed in the top 100 for the better part of six months, earned her way into several grand slams by qualifying and direct entry. In my book, that says a lot about her work ethic and character. Last year may have been a career year for her, but hopefully, she can get her results headed back in the right direction. For so many players, they work so hard to achieve a goal and then rarely get to enjoy it that much, as they discover it takes even more effort to stay there than to get there. That seems to have happened somewhat to Melanie South in the past year. It's a tough game, and I give credit to anyone who works hard to achieve what O'Brien has achieved.

I can't do this anymore

Katie said she could of won the match 'playing mediocre' but made way to many errors and was too inconsistent. Well why didn't she stop going for as much?!

Jill ran and ran, getting balls back and waited for Katie to implode, and she did. Her forehand completely broke down and it was game over.

Katie almost retired in 2008, god only knows what's going through her head now. Chin up, and win a match at Wimbledon please.
