Good for her! I know she bombed out early of some tournaments using her SR early this year. Does she have any left?

Also does anyone know if she lost weight/got any fitter? That seemed to be one of her biggest obstacles.

I think she has 1 or 2 SR's left, but not sure.

Yeah, and she looks way fitter. Also improved her serve according to a poster who saw her matches in Miami.

I'm very happy that she's only 18. Plenty of time to have a solid career

Tamira is almost 20, but she's young anyway! Good job winning the title!
