"Young player to watch
Portugal's hard-hitting Michelle Larcher de Brito will turn 16 in January and thus is still limited in how many WTAlevel
events she can play. This phenom and Florida resident had some quality wins in 2008, notably in Montreal,
where she qualified into the main draw, beat Vania King and then-No. 18 Flavia Pennetta, and pushed then-No. 4
Svetlana Kuznetsova to three sets in the round of 16. Larcher de Brito finished the season at No. 126."
