I was chastised for that opinion by a fan of hers suggesting that every serious fan of women’s tennis would know of her especially since she had been a QF at Roland Garros two years previously; a factoid I had obviously overlooked. Well OK she became visible in my radar and I then paid more particular attention. There is no denying she had a good run at RG and she was impressive at Wimbledon as well i.e. the golden set against the FO finalist and a tough competitive match against eventual champion Serena. However since then her results have not had that same magic; witness this result.
Err...thank you....yes....I think we are all aware of that as a matter of fact actually. If you think this vindicates anything then you really are rather sad.
