Hate to say it, but I'm more surprised than anything that Jill decided to play this year. Her results this fall were bordering on embarrassing.

True. She's the female Hewitt - it's time to hang them up.

Whoa. That's a bit harsh.

At least Lleyton has some results to cling onto and remember the good old days with.

I guess Nana Craybas has her 2005 Wimbledon 'I basically just gave her the match' triumph over Serena.

You have to admire her tenacity though. To fly half way around the world to compete at a tournament just to be sent packing a few days later albeit picking up 4 figure checks on the way.

It kind of makes me wonder if she has a husband and kids or not.

Yeah, I was expecting that aswell,

However, she's out there playing again, I wonder if it's for the enjoyment of the game more so then the competition.

She must have money coming in somewhere, because she get's around the place, did hear the craybas family got a few bob behind them.

TTR for Craybas. But any Pliskova win is good for the game.

Re: Auckland QR1: Karolína Plíšková def Jill Craybas 7-6 6-0

How old is Crabas? It seems to me she's been around forever. Did she once retire and come back like Kimiko Date? I've seen her play only once, so I don't know what she plays like, but from the photos of hers I looked at, she's at least in her mid thirties.

To be fair to Craybas, she was a late starter on the Tour given that she went the college route. I think she only started playing full time when she was about 23/24.
