Good for her. What's her style of play?

She's like a little Lleyton Hewitt, a grinder. Even though she's only 5'1 she hits the crap out of the ball, very flat and hard. SHe has a very good serve for her height, very fluid, natural motion. She's extremely quick and a good all court player, remember she got to the YEC in doubles with Ai a few years back so she's very capable at the net. She's extremely fit, and very strong. A very exciting player to watch.
Though she is very intense on court and competes well, she has or had before this rapid rise up the ranks of choking....sometimes she gets nervous and it shows....but recently she's been very tough.
