Mexicans and Puerto Ricans don't have any intense dislike for each other but,with guys,sometimes the Latino male ego gets in the way a little bit.....I reckon that the women usually get along okay....Anyway,there's not gonna be any Mexican Hingis anytime soon,so I'll support Puig since she's the closest thing to Mexican that we're gonna get in the WTA Top 100 for a while.We'll see how she does in these later rounds in Portugal
I don't know if you saw it but there was an interview recently with Galvadon at the Wta's website:
There was a time when this whole quadrant belonged to us! What are we now? Twelve worlds and a thousand monuments to past glories. Living off memories and stories, and selling trinkets. My god, man! We've become a tourist attraction. "See the great Centauri Republic - open 9 to 5 - Earth time."
