I want to echo House, this is a major achievement by Makiri! It is another indication of her progress and growth as a tennis player. Congratualtions to her, and wishes for many great Grand Slam results over the upcoming years. After all the years of training and hard work she has earned this honor. Wishing Makiri all the best for a favorable draw and strong play, it would be sweet to go beyond the 3rd round at a Grand Slam (which she achieved at the USO in 2003). Today belongs to Makiri for her success in gaining her first Grand Slam seed!
