But she has beaten Cara Black twice at RG, Sanchez-Vicario once, Mary Pierce once, Amanda Coetzer at least once.
Apart from the last couple of years (which make the assessment hard) Conchita nearly always reached the round of her seeding, but failed to make an impression once there. It's not just about opponent. It's a mental thing. People were touting her as a potential champion there back in 1990, and I think it got into her head. Also, the fact that ASV had so much success there meant Conchita had something to prove on the domestic front.
You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.
