Groth should have a good career ahead of her.
She has a lot of game. Still learning how to use it.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: 2 Australians into SFs of Kuala Lumpur...

Okay, here's a tougher question - when was the last time 2 Aussies were in the SF of a WTA tournament and neither of them was the Aussie No.1?

As an Australian I find this offensive. This is a wonderful country whose diversity and embracing of other cultures makes us unique in the world. We are a nation founded and built upon immigration. Even today almost 30% of our population are people born overseas. Anyone who has the privilege to become a citizen of this country deserves the recognition, respect and dignity offered to every Australian. Being Australian is about embracing a set of values that transcend geography. These players are as 'actually Australian' as any other citizen of this country.
