With this win, she makes what many of us probably thought will never happen and cracks the top 100

(So my prediction - like any other I ever made regarding the rankings - came true after all...

I did backtrack a bit just before she took off last summer...

Also only the 3rd Israeli, after Anna and Shahar, to get to R3 of a major.
Now you are making me look bad. I was quoted around the time you backtracked as thinking that she would never make the top 200! I am very glad I was wrong. While her physical skills were never in question, she seems to have to come a long way in the mental department, which for many players is just as important.
