Francesca Schiavone

Francesca Schiavone was definitely the hit of this year's Hopman Cup. The grunting 21-year-old from Milan warmed the hearts of the Perth public with her gargantuan efforts in hard-fought victories over Top 10 players, No. 5 Kim Clijsters of Belgium (6-4 6-4) and No. 10 Monica Seles of the United States (6-4 2-6 6-4). Schiavone said in an interview earlier this week that her goal was to play from the heart (for Italy), and to be liked by the Australian public. She successfully achieved both.


If you're not sure what Francesca looks like, she's sort of a cross between the Ukrainian sprinter Zhanna Pintusevitch-Block, and the British singer Melanie C (Sporty Spice). She only stands 5'5" but displays a heart twice her size.

" The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle "
" When you're not training, someone else is training... TO KICK YOUR ASS! "
" It's not the size of the dog in a fight, but the size of the fight in a dog. "
