Bryanne Applegate seems in shocking after leaving the hospital and still unavailable for comment but she was around in San Diego while Tobias Applegate was in car accident. Local policemen came and see Bryanne for the news. She was devastated and decided to call Ruflina in Palermo.

Ruflina plays on

Two hours before her doubles final in Palermo, Taliamanosoko heard of the devestating news, but was determined to not let Jane Wong down in the final.

In a press release, Ruflina had to say this:

I am still in shock and do not know what to do. This is a rare tournament that I travel alone (except with Jane) as we were going to Indonesia for Fed Cup then back home in a few days, so Tobias was on his own while our nanny was watching the children. My life is confusing right now as a man that I deeply love is gone, but if it were not for Jane Wong, it would be in a downward tailspin. She is my rock and I appreciate her friendship. She did not want to play doubles final but I insisted for her and for Tobias, and we won at it was most happy but most sad title of my live.

My other friends on the tour as well hae been very supportive to, like Monica, Tami, Tiff, Selima, and Marteena.

But most of all, it is Bryanne Applegate that has been most supportive. She is such a kind person after what happened and is very upset too as she loves Tobias as well. She has become a true friend. Thank you Bryanne.

"So many tragic losses. Sympathies to Ruflina and her kids and Bryanne "

-- Lindsay

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.
