The ankle seems to have been re-injured as she was having problems with it during the last game. Brave of her to continue on, but quite the sad turn of events late in the 2nd set. After all the hard work she has put in over the past 9/10 months only to fall and re-injure the same ankle in her 4th tourney back on tour. ?
This 14 year old tennis prodigy has a good future ahead of her.
Last year she won the USTA Girls 16 Clay Court Championships' singles crown at Virginia Beach Tennis and Country Club, her 4th USTA gold ball that she has won.
Also made it to the 3rd round of the Junior US Open.
Last week, won...

I think it's about time that Mel got her own thread. She's playing her way through the Australian Open Qualifying rounds right now. She is into the final rounds with a 7-5 7-5 win yesterday over Catalina Castano.
I figured I'd make a cheering thread for Jill! She's one cool lady...
I hope she can defend most of her quarterfinalist points this year at the Nasdaq-100!
She just defeated Razzano 46 63 62. Well done Jill!
