How cool is someone is so talented to become a professional tennis player and also an artist?

And she's only 23. Tommorrow she will play her 20th ITF singles final already, having won two $25K tournaments and eleven $10K tournaments (many more in doubles). She played her first $10K final when she was 15 years and 2 months old.
Sadly our disgraceful CBT, our association, put 10x more money on men than our girls. Roxane only played now, after months, because it was in Sao Paulo. She does not have any help from CBT or the private sector. Since the 80's the girls shine on juniors but never goes beyond for the lack of tournaments.
