Oh yes they have, but the main source of the hype was actually her own team, who went on promoting her on a large scale before anyone even knew who she was. And of course, her own words often repeated in interviews for the local press, in which she would frequently state that she aims for #1, surely didn't help - cause when you talk big, people expect even bigger. But yes, a bit of common sense on the part of the fans wouldn't hurt
Anyway, Miami qualies coming up. Any win(s) would be more than welcome. Go for it Donna!
