the tower of power from california is often described as too nice and too indifferent of her tennis play. however, her results have spoken quite the opposite. with a clever and big serve, resounding groundstrokes from both sides. efficient volleying skills and an almost unbeatable return game, she has shown her mark in the FWTA tour.
despite her biggest weakness, her speed and fitness, she makes up for it well with a good reach and heightened anticipation due to mental toughness and experience.
in 2002, she hopes to gain more wins under her belt in the FWTA tour and to climb the rankings from her current position of ten and with her reknewed and focused mindset, she could certainly achieve them.
