Does anyone know if it's true that Louise Latimer is making a comeback at the Pilot Pen? Apparently the tournament is looking for some headline acts ahead of the US Open, and is worried that current sign-ups may no-show at the last minute.

What happened to Latimer all these years? What were her strengths and weaknesses, and how will she perform on the Tour?

I remember as her form as a bit spotty, occasionally good. She'd step gingerly out onto court, warm up well, and then flake out. Her better shots would soon pale into insignificance.

What are your thoughts?

Who is she?

The closest any British girl has gotten to the top 100 this century :p

Ranked #107 WTA in January 2001. Retired in Wimbledon that year.

Her last win at ITF level was a 75 63 win over Stevenson at $25K Surbiton on grass :worship:

She was decent. She could have beaten Anke Huber in Wimbledon but she didn't seem to believe in herself.

What about Shirly-Ann Siddall? She's coming back too? :lol:

No clue. But I always found her name funny, and she took a set off Jennifer once at Wimby, and she was funny on-court. That's why I remember her. :)

yep, i think it was a D-i-s-g-r-a-c-e that venus didnt mention borwell in her winner speech. Im stating to really hate venus for that
