I was at that match and that's where I became a fan. I was wandering the outer courts around 8 at night and I stumbled upon the match. Here was this gorgeous blonde girl I had never heard of going toe to toe with a seeded player. I stayed to watch her and I never stopped.

Side note, and I hate to report this, but I've been told by reliable sources that she now plays for the other team.
