Francesca is a scrappy player and she benefited well with all the injuries of other players. Got to be tough losing to one player so much but she has had a great summer and hopefully she can do some damage at the US Open.

Francesca says she likes playing Kim - you can see why in their closer matches. Kim seems to be playing lots more angles against Francesca so the learning experience may be mutual.


Francesca has had awful draws all year - Kim and Venus and Serena in early rounds. She takes them closer than most of the 7-25 ranked players (jen excepted) but usually they break her back when she gets a lead. If she hadn't met the top players so early her ranking ironically would probably now be near enough to 20 to ensure she didn't have to play them early. If she can get the ranking up and get a more reliable serve there is an opening in the top 20 for a non-Russian who can threaten the top players and Fran may be the girl to fill it.
