Re: Orange Bowl International Tennis Championship, USA, GA

Peña was one of the best players of 1997, she had wins against Konjuh and Ostapenko, and she used to defeat Sorribes, but in the Nike spanish master that year, she was injured in the back. She won that match against Sorribes, and even was runner up of the international masters that year, but she had to stop playing for six months.
She came back to play the european nation challenge u12, and even she won all her matches but one (against Ploskina) wich was quite impressive for a girl coming back from a long injury.
Then she only played spanish master nike, she lost with Payola, and that was her last match. Her injury came back, and she retired. I think it were too many injuries at such young age, and too much pressure too. She had a very unusual game for a spanish player, with flat groundstrokes. It was a pity, because she had a lot of potential
