Poor Maria! She was playing so well. Only to get crushed by Myriam Casanova, the Russian wrecking ball!
Eggy, not only does Maria give up about 2 years in age and experience, but according the ITF junior bios, Maria, who is listed as an inch taller than Myriam, amazingly gives up nearly 50 pounds in weight. unfortunately, a lack of size will probably be Maria's biggest problem on the WTA tour. But I'm hoping her talent can overcome her lack of weight.
Congrats to Myriam. She dominated eveyone. And she was playing doubles, too. Eggy, Myriam really dominates the junior Russian girls. But she won't have so easy when she joins the WTA tour. I can't see her beating Dementieva, Kournikova, Petrova and Krasnoroutskaya. Can you?
