When I first saw her at the Eddie Herr about 3 years ago she had a slight accent.
Upon a recent visit to IMG she had no accent at all and I was told that they worked with her
extensively to disguise any notion that she was foreign
. No doubt that she is a good player though.
Very consistent, very steady. But doesn't take any risk.
But is very very precocious.
They better change her last name then .

But seriously, i would like to see her play sometime.

Thanks for the info .
