Hopefully she plays that other girl called Storm one day.

That would be epic no doubt

No, unlike Cara these sisters are actually black.

I don't know how parents can give their children such ridiculous names.

Re: Tornado in qualifying

Tornado is a nickname. Her given name is Alicia.

Hurricane is a given name though.

Are you sure? I've seen others say that it's a nickname but her official tournament listings use that name. Either way it's kinda cool.

I think that about some names. But then again they only sound ridiculous because they're not common. What I do cringe at is when people come up with some weird spelling for a common name. That and prefixing "Le" and "De" as a way to form a name.

Re: Tornado in qualifying

Tornado is a nickname, but she is using it from the start.
It's a slightly exotic variation on some names of players, Conchita Martínez is really Concepción Martínez, but she used Conchita from the begining of her career, and there's a lot of examples.

Tornado is doing well in the qualification draw, Frenkel who was born in 98 too, scored a great win today. USA has a good generation of girls born in 1998
