Joannette Kruger (RSA)

does anyone know what happened to this gorgeous south african with the flowing locks and cheeky smile? she all but disappeared after her 2004 loss french open 1r to capriati. i loved watching her play, amazing mover and scrapper, and one of the best (if most unorthodox) drop shots going. she had some great wins, got up to about high 20s in the rankings, and then disappeared. watching her play a close 3 setter against graf in the 94 french was amazing, such a fun and exciting match. i remember her having some weird injuries towards the end of the career but then no news. she had a few ribs removed for some reason, she also had a weird illness where she collapsed a few times in a match in florida as she was going to serve and this kept her away for awhile. anyone have any news on where joanette went to, or just want remember her fondly?

Though I didnot have the chance to watch a full match of her
To me she was/is one of the most beautiful tennis players

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
