Kata is through to the 2nd round by beating Eleni Daniilidou 7-5 4-6 6-3.
She starts the defense of her doubles title with Shinobu today against her former doubles partner and coach Tina Krizan, who is playing with Jennifer Russell of the USA.
New fan--well, not really, but I am just now acknowledging it. Cute kid and great spirit/fight in her.
She made it to the second round--too bad she ran into such a buzzsaw when she got there.
Let's hope she gets higher than #28 this year--
Go, Katie, go!
