Devastating loss, but she told me that she is playing Charleston next week as well so I will get the chance to see her live and cheer her on. I imagine she didn't have too much support in Ponte Vedra Beach, who could possibly have heard of her there besides tennis diehards?
I'm hoping she will look at this positively. It's hard, but I mean, it's a huge step from ITF's to holding a mp against Daniela Hantuchova. Plus she had a really good tournament with 3 wins.
I hope she can build on this
This is a positive. She's young, she's expected to miss a few of these opportunities through chokes/nerves. I know she's probably a little disappointed but hopefully she can look at it as a good thing.
