Thanks :wavey:

she needs to do well here as she reached Brussels 10K final exactly 12 months ago

Jul 17th, 2002, 03:29 PM
Impressive first two rounds :eek:

Thanks for the info BTW! I checked the figures, and her junior record has been pretty good with lots of QF and SF finishes...anyway, is she concentrating on juniors for this year?

Jul 17th, 2002, 05:34 PM
pretty much so
this event is only her 2nd ITF event of the year

Wish she played a little more than just 2-3 events

Jul 17th, 2002, 06:37 PM
Zhenya won 6-0 6-0 :D :)

now she plays 3rd seed Alberta Brianti

good luck tomorrow Zhenya ;)

Nov 5th, 2002, 03:16 AM
Eugenia! A thread dedicated to her!:drool:

Eggy, is there a difference in Eugenia and Evgenia besides the pronunciation? I've seen where her names have been spelled both ways. I personally like Eugenia more, so......:p

Nov 5th, 2002, 08:06 AM
You can also write Yevgenia (it's the same name as Kafelnikov, only the female ending), it doesn't matter in English. There is a strict spelling in Russian though

it sounds like Evgenia though

Nov 5th, 2002, 08:07 AM
If I see Zhenya this week, I'll congratulate her ;)

Nov 5th, 2002, 09:03 AM
good Nina :)
congratulate her from me too :)

Martian KC
Nov 5th, 2002, 09:36 PM
Thanks Nina!:D Congratulate her for me too!:P

Nov 5th, 2002, 09:40 PM
I can see Nina saying

"Well done Zhenya" and btw Egg and Pea say well done too
Zhenya thanx :confused:

Martian KC
Nov 6th, 2002, 03:16 AM
LMAO! She will be like that's what I had last night.:o

Nov 6th, 2002, 08:21 AM
I'll explain ;) and maybe invite her to visit WTAWorld :)

Nov 7th, 2002, 02:53 AM
linetskaya, douchevina, brattchikova, sharapova, bastrikova and golovin will have huge impacts on the tour next year.

Nov 7th, 2002, 08:30 AM
not so sure about Brattchinkova

Nov 7th, 2002, 10:02 AM
Nina is too raw, saw her last week she won but could have won easier but made lots of silly errors
she's got some good volleys

Nov 15th, 2002, 03:48 PM
saw Zhenya on the street yesterday, just said Hi, we were heading in different directions, didn't have time to congratulate her, I might tomorrow

King Aaron
Nov 16th, 2002, 01:50 PM
That's cool!! :cool: Seeing her in the streets I mean!

Nov 20th, 2002, 05:47 PM
Zhenya's site- http://linetskaya.newmail.ru/

created by her dad

Nov 20th, 2002, 05:49 PM
thanx Nina :)

Nov 20th, 2002, 05:53 PM
saw her practice today :) congratulated her too :)

She hits the ball extremely hard, well from both sides, I'd say the backhand is a bit better, she's very quick, has a good head, she didn't volley perfectly today, pretty defensivly but did hit a few great winners :)

Nov 20th, 2002, 05:54 PM
Nina i tried it and its not working :mad: :(

Nov 20th, 2002, 05:57 PM
:confused: it's working for me :confused:

Nov 20th, 2002, 06:17 PM
what does it say? try again :)

Nov 20th, 2002, 06:20 PM
Now its working :)
i used Netscape before as IE on WYA World keeps freezing on me again :mad:

but now its ok , works fine :)

Martian KC
Nov 21st, 2002, 03:54 AM
Thanks Nina! It works for me, but it's a tad bit too slow.:-*

Nov 29th, 2002, 08:56 PM
Happy 16th b-day Zhenya :D :bounce:

make it a good 2 weeks in Miami :)

Dec 14th, 2002, 01:45 AM
My first post in Eugenia's cheering thread brought her bad luck. :(

Dec 14th, 2002, 04:10 AM
Zhenya :sad: :(
another loss to Anna-Lena :sad: :(

rest up well Zhenya before 2003 season :)

auntie janie
Dec 14th, 2002, 01:26 PM
Can anyone tell me how tall Evgenia is?

King Aaron
Dec 14th, 2002, 04:51 PM

Dec 14th, 2002, 05:21 PM
she's listed as 1m68 (5'6) but i'm not sure how upto date that is

I'm sure Nina could tell us when she sees her again :)

Dec 14th, 2002, 07:12 PM
1 68 is probably her height now as well ;) maybe a centimeter or two taller, it's hard to tell ;)

auntie janie
Dec 14th, 2002, 10:49 PM
Thanks, Eggy and Nina. I hope Eugenia will grow more! It is tough for players of that size any more. :(

King Aaron
Dec 15th, 2002, 05:58 PM
Thanks Eggy and Nina. Janie, you're right. It's tough for this girls to play with the elites with this size. Eugenia will grow though.

Martian KC
Dec 15th, 2002, 11:11 PM
She has mental blocks against top players.:( Good luck in 2003, Eugenia!!!

Feb 21st, 2003, 06:22 AM
bad loss after she qualified. she won her qualifying matches in fine style defeating kambic the 8th seed 6-0 6-1 then went on to beat kilsdonk the 10th seed 6-4 6-2. eugenia herself wasn't seeded for the qualies but managed to beat 2 seeds comfortably.

her match-up in the main draw was against unseeded voina and eugenia lost 6-2 7-6. this event was the buchen 10k and i thought that eugenia would win this event.

hope she does better in her next event.

Mar 10th, 2003, 06:17 AM
$25k Kaunas qualifying

round 1 linetskaya def. chemarda 6-3 6-1.
she faces bastrikova next in the 2nd round. it should be a tough match. both players are very good and have some talent.

Mar 10th, 2003, 10:53 AM
good win Zhenya :) :)

Mar 11th, 2003, 02:32 AM
Eugenia defeated anna bastrikova. don't know th scoreline though.

good luck in the rest of the tournament.

Mar 11th, 2003, 05:16 PM
who does she play next? Fokina?

Mar 11th, 2003, 05:48 PM
she qualified by beating Ekaterina Dzehalevich 6-4 6-4
well done Zhenya :D :)

waiting for maindraw placement

Mar 13th, 2003, 03:20 PM
yep she did bt Fokina yesterday 6-2 6-0 :D
wow Zhenya :D :)

Mar 14th, 2003, 09:21 AM
Zhenya lost 6-4 6-7 3-6 :sad: to Magdalena Zdenovcova :(

Mar 14th, 2003, 08:16 PM
that's dissapointing after such a brilliant win over Fokina but still a great tournament for Zhenya :)

Mar 25th, 2003, 03:14 PM

Zhenya into semis :D :bounce:

Zhenya d. Anais Laurendon 3-6 6-2 6-1 :bounce: :D

semis today vs Olga Kalyuzhnaya

Mar 29th, 2003, 04:05 AM
good win. laurendon has been on the rise this year. i'm hoping eugenia will win this event and go on to bigger tournaments like $50k's. if she wants to catch up to her fellow countrywomen then she needs to start playing better players to get herself up to their level.

King Aaron
Mar 29th, 2003, 03:16 PM
Zhenya :)
Good luck against Olga!

King Aaron
Mar 30th, 2003, 04:26 PM
Zhenya defeated Olga 6-3, 6-3 to move into the final. :)

Mar 31st, 2003, 02:58 AM
Zhenya won the title :bounce:

5-7 6-4 6-4 win over Tatsiana Uvarova
congrats Zhenya on your 1st $25k title :)

now she's got a play-in for the $170K Bol qualies :)

King Aaron
Mar 31st, 2003, 02:15 PM
Wow! Well done Zhenya! :)
Good luck in Bol if you take the feed-up.

Apr 2nd, 2003, 04:02 AM
where is eugenia ranked now?

Apr 2nd, 2003, 04:07 AM
only #555. but she did move up from #711. she really needs to get that ranking up if she wants to get some wildcards and join her fellow young russians in the taking over of the wta tour.

Apr 2nd, 2003, 09:38 AM
her $25K pts from St Petersburg will be added next week, that will take her to 350ish

Apr 2nd, 2003, 12:32 PM
wow :) Well done kiddo!

Been ages since I posted in this thread, good to see her making some progress! Keep it up :)

Apr 12th, 2003, 10:03 AM
Zhenya is in Antalya $10k :)

she won her 1st two matches :D

1st rd vs 16 yr old Elena Vesnina 6-0 6-0 :) :o
then 6-3 6-0 vs Daniela Klemenschits

go Zhenya :)

King Aaron
Apr 12th, 2003, 04:39 PM
Well done Zhenya. :)

Apr 12th, 2003, 06:34 PM
pffffffff she goes and loses to Annette Kolb :rolleyes: :mad:

Apr 13th, 2003, 02:26 AM
eugenia? she's done this sort of thing a couple of times, winning her matches easily then suddenly losing to a player that she can easily beat. i think she is ready for the wta tour, not full time but to get some matches under her belt and to see the level of play in those events. she really needs to catch up to safina, douchevina and sharapova.

King Aaron
Apr 13th, 2003, 03:40 PM
:( :( Zhenya

Apr 26th, 2003, 03:55 PM
Zhenya is in Bol qualies

and she won her 1st rd match vs Nastya Rodionova (who retired :sad: ) 6-1 3-0 rtd :D :D

go Zhenya now go and qualify :)

Apr 27th, 2003, 05:37 PM
Zhenya lost to Petra Dizdar :rolleyes: :(
6-1 3-6 3-6 :mad: :fiery:

Zhenya ???? i know she don't like clay but this is a bad result

Apr 27th, 2003, 07:26 PM
it's not just because it's clay

I was told she's playing really badly now (this started after St Petersburf) and that's cos at the moment she has some mental problems (no idea where they came from)...

Jul 18th, 2003, 01:24 PM
Linetskaya hasn't played for a while. As long as she's fit. She has a few tourneys left, hopefully she will be playing the indoors tournaments. Think she'll have a WC-Qual for the Kremlin Cup like last year. Go Zhenya

Jul 20th, 2003, 07:41 AM
this is another crazy-parent case...the father...

Jul 20th, 2003, 10:02 AM
arghhhhh what's Simon done ???
:mad: :sad:

Jul 20th, 2003, 01:00 PM
this is another crazy-parent case...the father...
Nina :wavey: That's very good to have you esp. because you're from Moscow, and knowing what's going on in Moscow. Yeah, Moscow has become a tennis town. I bet percentually in women's tennis, most are players from Moscow. You're better than the Internet search, because I couldn't find out anything new about what's going on nowadays at the big Spartak Tennis Club. Only the names of Kournikova, Safin, Dementieva and hardly Myskina were given.

Jul 20th, 2003, 08:28 PM
oh YAY! I had problems with my e-mail and was afraid you didn't get my letter :) But I guess you did. Good :)

Jul 23rd, 2003, 08:52 AM
arghhhhh what's Simon done ???
:mad: :sad:

well, first he had an argument with her sponsors, and then with her coach. He wanted to travel with Zhenya, which meant they had to pay everything for him as well, as he doesn't have a job, the sponsors dissagreed as they thought it had a bad effect on her game and on her state of mind, he got mad,locked Zhenya in her room for several days, took her mobile phone, so she couldn't contact anyone, took her from our club.I don't really know what was the purpose of that.She's now moving from club to club without a decent coach, don't know what the situation with the sponsors is...

that's very private info :secret:

Jul 23rd, 2003, 10:39 AM
thats just not on :sad:

poor Zhenya :sad: :sad:

Sep 17th, 2003, 05:14 PM
seems like Zhenya's back on tour again :)

played two weeks ago in Fano where she lost in qualies to top seed Prusova in 3 sets

this week
she's into QF of $25k Tbilisi :D
1st rd def Verena Beller 7-5 3-6 6-1
2nd rd def Galina Voskoboeva 6-4 6-0

QF vs Elena Vesnina

go Zhenya go ;)

Sep 17th, 2003, 05:19 PM
She's back only in the quarters against the in form Vesnina would have prefered this as a final. Good luck Linetskaya

Sep 19th, 2003, 11:37 AM
Zhenya lost her quarters match in 3 sets against the in form Vesnina. Keep progressing Zhenya

Sep 22nd, 2003, 07:18 PM
Zhenya qualified for 75k Batumi :)

maindraw she plays Maria Goloviznina
good luck Zhenya :)

1st rd d. Julia Vorobieva 6-1 6-1
r2 d. Ekaterina Dzehalevich 6-3 6-0
r3 d. Nina Bratchikova 6-4 6-1

Sep 22nd, 2003, 08:52 PM
Good luck Zhenya, she more than probably made the top 300 :bounce:

Sep 25th, 2003, 09:16 PM
Zhenya into QF in Batumi :D :banana:

wins over Maria Goloviznina 6-3 6-3
then Alyona Bondarenko 4-6 6-3 6-2

good luck now vs Jelena Jankovic
go Zhenya :)

Sep 25th, 2003, 09:23 PM
Excellent Zhenya. Wonder about tomorrows match against Jankovic, if she wins, that probably means no KC-Qual. She won 25 K St-Petersburgh in Russia. Or other possibility WC-Main Draw. Can't see Zhenya not going for the Kremlin Cup

Sep 25th, 2003, 09:27 PM
A main draw WC? She's ranked #317.

Sep 25th, 2003, 09:33 PM
A main draw WC? She's ranked #317.
Remember Elke Clijsters got a WC-Main Draw too, and this was not in Belgium. And Elke is lower ranked than Zhenya.

Sep 25th, 2003, 09:39 PM
But there's also Dinara, Masha K., and Vera D.
Fokina is in the top 200.

Sep 25th, 2003, 09:50 PM
We'll see what happens tomorrow. Jankovic is fav. to beat Zhenya. If things go as expected. Zhenya will be back in Moscow by tomorrow night. Obviously then playing the Qual.on Saturday Can't see she's left out as WC-Qual.

Sep 26th, 2003, 08:09 PM
Zhenya won 7-6(5) 6-1 :woohoo: :bounce: :D :banana: :)

now she plays Obziler in SF
beat her and trophy is her's
i expect her to do pretty well and take her out. (its gonna be tough but Zhenya is more than capable)

make up for Moscow by winning Batumi

37 pts so far and she can double it by winning tourn.

Sep 26th, 2003, 09:30 PM

Sep 27th, 2003, 08:31 PM
Fantastic result, Eugenia!!!:D

Sep 28th, 2003, 02:59 PM
Zhenya booked her place in the 75 K Batumi final. And she's on her way to the Australian Open Qual. Think just one win away.

Sep 28th, 2003, 03:04 PM
come on Zhenya win this final :)
good luck girl

Martian KC
Sep 28th, 2003, 06:03 PM
Goo Eugenia!!! Win it!:bounce:

Sep 28th, 2003, 06:07 PM
she'll be ranked around 230 by making final which will get her into AUS qualies
the title will move her about to #200

Martian KC
Sep 28th, 2003, 07:31 PM
WOW, she shot up the rankings just with this toureny!:bounce:

Sep 29th, 2003, 04:39 AM
Zhenya lost in final :sad: :(
no result yet but from ranks she lost :(

still she's upto #216 in ranks (forgot her pts from Tbilisi)

Martian KC
Sep 29th, 2003, 04:22 PM
She's almost in the top 200!:bounce: Goo Eugenia!!!

Oct 11th, 2003, 03:25 PM
Good luck Eugenia!:)

Oct 13th, 2003, 06:03 PM
Got e-mail from the Dubai tourney. Zhenya qualified for the Main Draw. She defeated A. Roesch 6-3 6-0

Oct 13th, 2003, 06:27 PM
thats cool :)
well done Zhenya :) pretty great win :)

Oct 13th, 2003, 06:46 PM
Got e-mail from the Dubai tourney. Zhenya qualified for the Main Draw. She defeated A. Roesch 6-3 6-0

I know a Top 10 player who would love to have a similar scoreline against same opponent.. ;)

Oct 13th, 2003, 09:43 PM
I know a Top 10 player who would love to have a similar scoreline against same opponent.. ;)
Bet that's a player from the same hometown as Zhenya. She'll play A. Parra in the first round. Not the best draw

Oct 13th, 2003, 09:52 PM
I think he means Dementieva. But Lena beat Roesch 2 & 1 at Wimbledon.

Martian KC
Oct 13th, 2003, 10:17 PM
That's fantastic news. Good luck Eugenia!!!

Oct 18th, 2003, 12:29 PM
Zhenya lost in maindraw to Parra :sad: :sad:


Zhenya in Dubai

Martian KC
Oct 18th, 2003, 05:33 PM
She keeps improving!! Hoping she gets into the top 200 by the end of the year!:bounce:

Oct 19th, 2003, 07:45 AM
where does she play next? i've been waiting for her to make her big jump in rankings and was very surprised when i saw her around 220 in the world.

does she play much more this season? hopefully we'll see her in the top 200 by years end.

Oct 19th, 2003, 09:47 PM
Obviously Zhenya can't play as much as she wants. Had a check on her average points a tourney. On average points Zhenya is around 120th.
Well done! Hopefully she still plays this year. GO Zhenya

Nov 13th, 2003, 01:25 AM
Zhenya due to play in Florida as well
$50k Palm Beach Gardens (qualies at present but she might sneak in)

good luck Zhenya :)
this will be her 1st event after turning 17 (30th Nov)

Nov 13th, 2003, 10:18 PM
Keep up the good and step up gear.

Martian KC
Nov 21st, 2003, 02:08 AM
Good luck Eugenia!:)

Nov 27th, 2003, 03:31 PM
she's withdrawn from the $50k event
looks like she will play Eddie Herr jrs next week

Nov 28th, 2003, 01:35 AM
Zhenya turns 17 this Sunday. She's ranked about #215.

Nov 28th, 2003, 04:40 PM
Pity she withdrew. On the other she probably has made to the Aus-Open Qualifications. Well done this season

Martian KC
Nov 29th, 2003, 01:37 AM
She's pretty close to making the qualies. I don't understand why she'd rather play Eddie Herr.

Nov 29th, 2003, 12:26 PM
Pea, she WILL make the qualies for Aus Open

she's wasting her time in Eddie Herr, she hasnt played Jrs in 2003 now she does ???
dont make sense.
and its an extra $10 to enter U18 :eek: :o with no prize money

Martian KC
Nov 29th, 2003, 05:52 PM
*sigh* It'll be more embarrassing to lose to someone in juniors now. Eugenia.:rolleyes:

Nov 29th, 2003, 07:10 PM
anyway she's 17 in a few hours
Happy Birthday Zhenya :kiss: ;)

Nov 29th, 2003, 07:35 PM
She's one of the most improved Russian players. Can't see any reason, why she can't reach the 3rd of the Australian-Open Qual. It gives her a good chance to reach the top 200 for the first time.

Nov 29th, 2003, 07:47 PM
Happy Birthday Zhenya!! Good luck and best wishes at 17!

Martian KC
Nov 29th, 2003, 09:37 PM
Happy birthday, Eugenia!! May it bring in an Eddie Herr trophy;)!!

Nov 30th, 2003, 01:50 PM
Happy birthday, Zhenya! Continue your progress :)

Jan 8th, 2004, 09:47 PM
Here's Zhenya's section of the Hobart qualies-

SALERNI, Ma Emilia vs SKAVRONSKAIA, Liudmila
NAGY, Kyra vs PRUSOVA, Libuse

Jan 9th, 2004, 12:47 PM
Unfortunately, Zhenya lost in 3 sets. I think Zhenya will continue last years progress.

Jan 9th, 2004, 03:15 PM
I thought this was a pretty good draw. I was hoping Zhenya would win two matches.
But 2004 is just starting. Stay positive. There are plenty more opportunities ahead.

Jan 9th, 2004, 03:18 PM
pretty bad loss :( Zhenya should have taken her to the cleaners.

with little more matches under her belt, she'll learn to put away journey-woman players.

Martian KC
Jan 9th, 2004, 05:00 PM
Too bad for Eugenia!:( It's still early in the season, keep on trucking Eugenia!:D

Jan 14th, 2004, 12:02 PM
Zhenya's section for OZ qualies

Meilen Tu USA (12) vs. Monique Adamczak AUS
Camille Pin FRA vs. Eugenia Linetskaya RUS
Christina Horiatopoulos AUS vs. Virginie Pichet FRA
Zsofia Gubacsi HUN vs. Severine Beltrame FRA (20)

best of luck Zhenya :D :)
just get thru rd1 1st :) then worry about others.
just take care of your own matches :)

Jan 14th, 2004, 12:09 PM
Good luck, step up a gear. Though she lost to Mashona, Mashona seems to be in a better form. Zhenya can do it.

Martian KC
Jan 14th, 2004, 03:39 PM
That's not the best draw, but still winnable Eugenia!!:bounce: Good luck babe!

King Aaron
Jan 14th, 2004, 06:02 PM

Mar 21st, 2004, 07:39 PM
Great that means more or less she's covered the St. Petersburg points from last year + the tournaments she played bef. St. Petersburg. Think it was 0.75 + 8.00 points I think plus St. Peterburg
Thought Zhenya lost 4-6 4-6 to Conchi.
Great performance

I saw Martinez-Granados play in Memphis, and this is a good win. Good luck against Yulia Beygelzimer, who is ranked about #120, and has had some tough draws this year.
Yulia is a good player. This will be a good win if you can do it.

Mar 22nd, 2004, 11:25 AM

Apr 26th, 2004, 08:11 PM
Still a great week for Zhenya. Onward and upward -

Linetskaya, a 17-year-old from Moscow, will be playing in her third final in the last four weeks. She won last week's $25,000 clay court event at Jackson, Miss., and reached the final at a $50,000 event on hardcourts at Orange, Calif. In between, she made the semifinals of a $25,000 event in Redding, Calif.

Linetskaya was pushed to the brink by Cargill, and admitted her game wasn't as sharp as it could have been.

"I could have played at a much higher level," Linetskaya said. "I didn't play terrible, but I was just hitting too much on everything."

The two players traded howitzer shots from the baseline, and the match was as even as one could get through two sets.

Linetskaya rode three breaks of Cargill's serve in the opening set to race out to a 5-3 lead. The two players held from there as Linetskaya served out the set at love.

Cargill, who was moved around considerably by Linetskaya in the opening set, decided to become the aggressor in the second set.

Breaks in the fourth and sixth games allowed Cargill to race out to a 5-1 lead, but Linetskaya refused to go quietly.

Linetskaya broke Cargill twice over the next three games to rally and tie the set at 5-5. Cargill recovered, however, to win the set 7-5.

In the final set, Linetskaya had a 4-2 lead, setting up the crucial seventh game of the set.

Cargill built a 40-love lead on her serve, but couldn't hold. Cargill got loose with two forehands and a backhand, and on her fifth break point opportunity, Linetskaya chased Cargill out wide and Cargill floated a chip backhand wide as Linetskaya went up 5-2.

Linetskaya closed out the match from there as she hit a well-executed drop shot, and clinched the match with a backhand winner.

Martian KC
Apr 26th, 2004, 11:58 PM
It really was. She had amazing wins over quality players!:eek: Much tougher road than Shuai had, but keep going Eugenia!!

She's her chances to finish in the top 150 at the end of the year. Just avoid the first round exists in the GS-Qual.

May 3rd, 2004, 11:39 PM
she is doing really well, how many more tournaments can she play? she's already ranked around the top 150 so depending on how many tournaments she has left she could get even closer to the top 100 this year.

May 14th, 2004, 03:17 PM
she is doing really well, how many more tournaments can she play? she's already ranked around the top 150 so depending on how many tournaments she has left she could get even closer to the top 100 this year.Think she has 8 left till her 18th birthday + the GS's. She's around 75 points to defend this year. Very good chance to remain in the top 150 this year.

Zhenya will play at Wimbledon qualies :D :)

she was at Birmingham yesterday doing her Player Development.

Jun 12th, 2004, 10:22 AM
not found out why she couldnt play though.
thats the downside of having a "Media" pass at a small tourn (not many guys have these so :o) you're not allowed to engage with any players at all other than at press conferences and 1-2-1's.

Jun 16th, 2004, 01:24 PM
Well done Zhenya. Now it's on the cards she'll finish at least in the top 150 at the end of the year. She'll probably be seeded at the US-Open Qual, and she's good on the HC's. Generally good results from the Russian players on grass :bounce:

Jun 16th, 2004, 02:45 PM
well done Zhenya :D :)

now good luck vs Widjaja

eugenia lost to widjaja. i thought this would be a hard one to win but i have to say i'm shocked with the result following live scores. eugenia lost 6-4 6-7 1-6. she was up a break twice in the 2nd set and had a match point in the tie break. she broke widjaja to love at 0-5 in the 3rd set but went on to lose her service game to 15.

Jun 17th, 2004, 05:38 PM
Zhenya blew it :sad: :mad: :fiery:

she served for match *6-5 in 2nd
and had a match pt in Tiebreaker at 8-7

final set letdown 1-6 :sad: :bigcry: :(

its a disappointing that she didnt qualify but she didnt and now she has to focus on getting into wta events, she ready for the wta level and needs to work her way iinto wta tennis. hopefully in the next few months we can see her win a round or 2 at a wta event.

Jul 10th, 2004, 05:00 PM
