I really think she should turn pro soon. Most likely after her junior year at Stanford. She really has nothing to prove at the collegiate level, so its time for her to face the big girls.
At least, she can still beat Mal...
I doubt she will lose any points as she started to gain points in July. I think her size may be a factor, but she is not going to be intimidated
Way to go Gibbsy! So glad she got the opportunity to play and win a match here! The win will put her just inside the top 200 and hopefully allow her to compete in the French Open and Wimbledon quallies!

Interesting article providing the insight of the financial risks of being an amateur, funding a 3 week trip to Australia using personal funds, and the challenge to maintain a course load.
I would have thought that her scholarship at Stanford would have allowances to cover her expenses for tennis tournaments.
