Meghann continues to impress in her come back , she's now close to the world Top 50. She played 3 tournements. 1rst at Prague where she reached the 2nd rd falling to 6th seed/n°57 Camerin. The week after, she captured her 4th title (and 1rst in over 3 years!) at Rabat with victories over 9th seed/n°79 and 8th seed/n°76 respectively in SF and in final. At least, she played Istanbul upsetting 3rd seed/n°29 Chakvetadze before losing to n°65 Yakimova.
Amy keeps slumping in the WR and NR...ot seems that she's closer and closer to the end of her career.
Bethanie is still on the way to break the Top 100! and she's overtaking Serena in the NR.
Sunitha is back to the National top 20! She reached the QF at Charlottesville $50K beating 4th seed/n°138 Pooutchkova before falling to surprising runner up n°396 Cibulkova.
