I was at this match--she and I are friends and since she didn't have her coach with her for this tournament, and didn't know anybody else, actually had me registered as the on-court coach (but didn't use it) :lol:

With the right draw, she's definitely capable of winning a round (or two) at the US Open. She just has to believe in herself a bit more than she does at the moment. It also needs to be said that the calls in this match were AWFUL for both players. There were at least 10 instances of missed calls, one of them a shot by Riske that was 4 inches out and called in. The crowd cheered loudly the next point when that same linesperson gave a correct call, and Johansson refused to shake the referee's hands after the match.
