Well, I think Lexy firmly believes she can win Wimbledon or else she wouldn't be playing.
Aside from critics off the court, I am sure she's has plenty on the court, so she could be responding to all of that.
I doubt she'll go on the record, while she's still playing, but I have to wonder with her mother being a journalist, whether a book will be released telling the inside story once she's ready to retire.
I doubt that will be any time soon after all she still has to win Wimbledon.
Hibi played in the final of a $50,000 tournament or higher for the first time. Let's face it, though. A favorable draw helped her win the title. Hibi beat:
--Another 17-year-old, Victoria Duval, seeded eighth, in the first round.
--Diminutive qualifier Jessica Lawrence, 19, in the second round.
Alexandra Stevenson, 32, in the quarterfinals.
--Unseeded Allie Will, who had won all three of her previous matches in three sets in extreme heat, in the semifinals.
--And the ill Brengle in the final.
