No idea. Maybe she ran out of money: She only earned about US-$ 10.000 in her entire career :(

She just made the top 300 and stopped playing at the age of 20 years.

I was thinking the same before I realized this thread was started in 2004 and got no reply until Navratil dug it up. The most interesting point is how did he find it? :tape:

I'm sure it is a record :D

But to be honest I googled for Basternakova and found this thread. At least SEO is working for TF :)
