Last time I saw Lesley play was in 2005, at age 13. She was a smart player then. But what I understand from the match reports in Australia she has developed her game and is now quite a big hitter. Smart and big hitter sounds promising. She's one of the few Dutch junior players who gives 100% for tennis.
She is a big hitter
She hits the ball very nicely. I think the day I saw her, the forehand was more solid but she still hit the backhand very well. Can tell she was raw talent.
Just checked her site and it celebrates Arantxa's win
