Several things about Iris Ichim.

1. She does NOT think she is a model nor does she act like one. She is who she is and the photos are just a reflection of that. Anna is Anna and she does not see herself as any copy or reflection of the AK world. She doesn't think of herself in this way ever.

The comparison comes only from the public.

2. Her talent is unquestioned, she is a late bloomer but when she does, it will be interesting for all who have both watched and played against her.

3. The website is a design from her coach, but she and her family and agents approve everything on it and add material.

4. It is simple to dismiss players who haven't reached the finals of a Slam by age 16 as nobody's. It is easily as simple to regard todays young stars as the only ones ever to rise. The women's game is vulnerable, as seen inthe Pacific Life Open qualies and main.

Beware the overlooked.. they have nothing to lose and everything to gain.. Especially the talented ones, and there are some out there besides her.
