Re: ~!~Monika Wejnert~!~
Nah, Monika was getting ripped off big time by that girl at Gympie in quallies.
Her parents are from Eastern Europe (maybe Hungary)...and I know that her father can be pushy.
But to be honest, that is why a lot of the Eastern European nations have produced so many good players in recent times. Plenty of Aussie girls are too weak mentally and don't practise hard enough. Monika is 100% focussed every time she is on the court and she has had to work very hard to get to where she is at the moment because she has had little, if any, help from TQ.
I remember some people saying when Monika was 10 that she would get overtaken by all the other girls of her age because they supposedly had superior technical ability. But none of the girls have Monika's fighting qualities and she is a much better mover. This, coupled with her better serving, has seen her extend the gap between all of the 15 year olds in Australia, expect for Isabella.
I think that she is one of our better hopes for the future...
