sartrista7, you are very observant. Maria's agent said that she has beaten 4 players in the top 300 in the last 2 weeks. As far as I know, Maria has only won one ITF Challenger match. Maybe her agent is talking about practice matches at Bollettieri's.
I just hope Maria isn't overwhelmed by the occassion. And over the next couple of years, I hope she adds about 15 or 20 pounds to her frame. She's going to need to get alot stronger if she expects to thrive on the WTA tour, where the Amazons dominate the lightweights. And Maria at 5'9" tall and 109 pounds, is definately a lightweight.
