Re: 10,000$ Santos, Brazil, Jun03, Draws
Venditti did the same last year. Went to Thailand to play 3 $10K, lost all 3 in the 1st round and the last week in Thailand flew back to Brazil to play qualies in a $25K that very same weekend.
But the most random fact about 24yo Venditti is that she has been in the ITF Tour regularly for the last 9 years and her best result has been $10K quarterfinals. She has reached that round 11 times, always losing (in straight sets)
