Re: Ellie Halbauer
Well, in last week's tournament she made it the SF, where she lost to Danielle Collins in 3 sets (exactly like the week before, although in that case it was a second round match). On her way to the SF, she beat Taylor Townsend, among others.
For someone who's comfortably in the Top 300 (despite some injury problems apparently), and seems to be making progess, she certainly isn't hyped - or even talked about - much around here. ;-)
