Hopefully she may enter those 6 or so Aus 25K events around Oct/Nov and get some confidence and some ranking positions back. Her 2000 run was brilliant in those events, the 2 events 1st losses last year were well worth forgetting.
I remember back in early 2000 she played a 25K at bendigo and I sat near her support group whilst she was getting beaten fairly badly by Rachel McQuillan. After she lost some old guy went upto them and said that she played well and was pretty talented. One of the guys turned around, laughed and said basically she hadn't a hope. Great support.
I have my heart in my mouth with her flicky backhand, soft 2nd serve and suspect mental game. With those deficencies she was able to get near the top 60 last year. It shows that with some improvement in those areas the rest of her game stands up.
There's more to life than just being happy.
