IIRC, the best start a player made to her
year of late was Bram's idol Kim in 2005, as she won both IW and Miami (without an IPR no less, after playing her manager Bob Verbeeck's new Belgian event the past September, thus not being out 6 months). And I say that not even liking the Clijsters Clan, who used to (have or let) the very same Verbeeck glom Tier II maindraw WC's for her sister Elke; who was 0-8 for her career in tour singles matches, all of them in those Tier II's.
BTW, I complied with the intent of this Aga-bashing thread, and voted for Lena.
My current avatar is the new (elected March 30th) Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo
(the first woman to hold the job, FWIW). She was one of the few French Socialists who actually won, on a day the country swung hard to the right.
