Awesome... and got to R3 with to pretty straight forward straight set wins. Pity she runs into Sam now.
As for high ranking, she'll almost certainly achieve it this year as she has zero to defend between Wimbledon and the US Open. That that last year we were all wondering where she was and if retirement was impending Next thing we knew, she's a mum and started to rocket up the rankings!

She's risen so quickly this year it's hard to believe she started the year ranked 142. I think her most impressive stat is the fact she's yet to have an opening round loss this year - of the top 50 only Sharapova, Ivanovic and Suarez Navarro share the same feat!
