Wins over Sanchez, Kleybanova, Falconi, Fichman and Simmonds--all in a span of about 10 days or so. That's a thunderous comeback

She has 4 more tournaments to use SR.
She entered Stanford and San Diego qualies and Portland and Lexington challengers.
I hope she takes a break after this week and plays only Stanford qualies next week.

Not sure if she can use it again, since she used it last year for US Open.

Seriously doubt it, but I browsed last year's schedules and it turns out that her SR would've been good enough to get her into 4 WTA's between now and mid September - Washington, Cinci, New Haven and Quebec. My guess is that she'll remain in the States until the end of the year so it'd be great to enter whatever she can, as there aren't too many challengers left in the region, even if we count a few in South America (and there are none in the last two months of the year). Of course, she wouldn't have to use her SR for 25k's or maybe even some 50's now that she is around 470. But now she'll have an excellent chance (or so it seems) to go even further, as I just saw she'll play Sanders next, who took out 5th seed Rogers in three. So it's two unseeded battling for one, and two seeds (Glushko and Gibbs) for the other place in the final.

Ajmo Ivana

I started watching at 62 21. It always happens that our players start to lose as soon as I start watching

Does that happen to others of you?
