    In a GS final at 16, albeit doubles, it's still a special achievement!

    wikipedia has her down as 5ft 5ins tall :shock:

    anyone know if that is correct ?? :confused: i first looked her up last april when she had her burfdayy, 16, and she was listed as 5ft 5ins then..i thought hmmm just turned 16, must be growing still..but it still says the same.

    is she tiny..?, still growing.?, is wikipedia wrong.?, (no, never :twisted:).

    She went on to also reach the Wimbledon and US Open finals that year and lost them all.

    Now 19, she has been absent for a while, 'taking a break'.

    Is she set for cricket? Certainly not going to make the same money...

    Even if you lose the passion to play tennis, is it really not worth your while to just consider it "work" to be paid $500,000 a year... as a teenager?!

    I noticed she played and came runner up in a platinum Australian Money Tournament (our highest "paid amateur" level of tournament) in Brisbane last month. Maybe just testing the waters again???

    Although she's the sort of person who looks like they will excel at whatever she does. Always comes across as very level headed and sensible.

    Great tennis player, 16/17 and reached 3 grand slam doubles finals in one year. Amazing! Then she just dropped it all in September. Wish she would come back

    3 GS doubles finals, that's a really good achievement especially at the age of 16! Sad she just dropped out, but I guess that's better than becoming Bouchard 2.0
