I thought to myself - that it looked as if Meghann had gained some weight. She likes it - so good for her.

She may give Serena a go for her money.

New look

Meghann Shaughnessy is into her first Grand Slam quarter-final, where she will come up against world No 1 Serena Williams.
For Shaughnessy, the up side is she gets to test her new fitness against the best in the business.


The 23-year-old American said she's been working for two years with a fitness trainer in her home state of Arizona.
"He has entirely changed my body," Shaughnessy said after beating Russia's Elena Bovina 5-7 6-2 6-4.

"I've put on 20 pounds (nine kilogrammes), lost body fat, gained explosiveness, power ... its been incredible," she added.

Shaughnessy said she now tipped the scales at 68kg. "Women's tennis has become more powerful. The more power you have the better off you'll be."

Monday's win was her 11th straight to start the year. Before the
Australian, she won a warm-up tournament in Canberra.
