Her story would make a good movie and I am sure there are many others.

It makes me admire how committed she was to her game and to persevere, after 10 years playing ITF circuit and winning 11 titles.
Many people would have given up, but based on her situation, there weren't that many options.
Living in a van, homeless, being a testimony of limited options.
Like I said, it would make for a good movie, especially if she climbs higher to top 10.
