Petra needed this win to (almost) secure the USO qualies

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

If anyone can report on Mayo Hibi's match or gamestlye it would be great. I am very curious to see her development on the ITF circuit, she is still young yet seems to have a very unique game for a Japanese player and she is getting good wins in these tough 50k's.
Hope she can continue getting these wins under her belt, haven't seen an Asian player with a good slice since Yayuk Basuki.

She's a solid all-court player. One-handed topspin backhand and a very flat forehand. Not much power, but places the ball well. Doesn't come into net all that much, but picks the right moments to do so. She's definitely playing at a lower top 100 level now, so I'd expect her to be there by this time next year. She's only defending 35 points between now and MAY 2014!

It's very likely that she'll be in US Open qualies as well. She's in the US Open National championship playoffs in New Haven and is a clear favorite to take that title. She'll be the #1 seed, Kukharchuk is the #2 seed and Melichar is the #3 seed.

Thanks CoryAnnAvants#1.

I don't want to hijack this thread as a Mayo Hibi thread, but just another question.

1. Mayo Hibi uses the slice much more often than coming over the ball for the one hander, is this true?

:-)
