a few days ago i thought Storm had done really well to beat Savic in the first round she must have improved heaps to take the title!!

I've read once that she has a really powerful ground game, is that true?

I just realised that Storm has done what is probably an incredibly rare achievement:

Beating the top seeds in both qualifying and the main draw en route to winning a tournament!

Yeah interested to know as well, expecially sudden turnaround. Did anyone see the matches this week for a bit of a run down?

Have heard generally plays hard & flat, not much of the curve "outspin" (compared to right) for a left-hander. Works hard at training. Likes to hit hard, but recently making more balls vs errors, and much more consistent? Promising results in 2011, though injury prone in 2012 (arm/ elbow?), and continued to play on in events when shouldn't have. As an TA/AIS sponsored athlete given chances in AO lead-ins but not great results. Confidence boosting results in doubs vs top seeds and amazing break through in singles (from quals onwards) this week. Shows what's possible for the rest and to break open the prospects for other next gen players to come through.

Louloubelle provides some insights also on thread "Aussie ITF circuit 2012/2013". Aussie ITF circuit 2012/2013

A very exciting time for Storm, going to be the buzz for now in the tennis circles...
