I hope she actually develops becaus eit seems like we always here of these talented young players and then their development seems to stall...like Damayanti for example...

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

The only problem with Ayu is that she doesn't have the money to travel. Plus, she's injury prone.

Grace is only 13. Pretty impressive result so far for her. We'd see how it goes for her. Definately a bright future.
