What in heaven's name is she thinking? Flying all the way to Sutton to play a $10K, pushing age 33, hardly any match practice, in such deplorable shape (for an athlete -- she's not so bad for an "everyday" person). It probably cost her almost $10K just to get there (Dear Mother in tow) and find lodgings, eat, string racquets.
And then a 1st Round loss. She earned 0 points and probably didn't make $50.
It makes no sense, but people are allowed to throw their lives away, if they want.
I truly wish she'd detach from that woman and, with her friendly, bubbly personality, I bet she could find an ally to help her get a job on Tennis Channel ... or something.
She's apparently going to try to qualify for a couple more $15K MDs in Britain. It's becoming surreal.
