Thanks for the update MasterLu....I hope that Iva can get her groove on and get through to the later rounds in at least one of these tournis!!!! It is a good sign to see that she's committed everywhere!!! All of these tournis have hard draws, so it won't be easy anywhere, but Iva always surprises!!!! Just by playing so many of tournis, she improves her chances of doing well. Even if she can't make the Championships, I'd love to see her finish the year inside the Top 20 or Top 25 at least.
I was a little surprised by the loss to Grande, but she seems to know how to play Iva well.
We've got to hope for decent draws where Iva avoids an early round meeting with a Williams sister. Against anyone else, I'd say Iva can pull a surprise upset.
