Best friends, Tamaryn Hendler and Tara Moore, who both attend the IMG Bollettieri Academy are on course to repeat their 12s final last year, playing in the 14s. Both had huge wins today over the number one and two seeds respectively. "We are partners in dominating," said Tamaryn, who rarely looks at the draw before going out to play her match. "I just tried to play really aggressive and not stay on the defense. The girl hit the ball really hard and I didn't give her any chances whatsoever. Anyway, I hope it continues; cross fingers."
Tara, who will face 2004 girl's 12 Junior Orange Bowl Champion, Valeria Solovieva from Russia, said: "I have already achieved what I wanted to achieve by winning Eddie Herr last year, so to get to the final will be amazing. It will be another line in my Junior Tennis profile."
"My advice to anyone planning to watch my matches on live scoring is this: don't do it - it's not good for your health!"
