No, we were doubles partners back in the day...the summer I first came back to tennis. We had a good run together, but since she was 2.5 (she is now 3.0) and I was 3.0 (now 3.5), when it came time for indoor we had to play on different teams. I do still see her from time to time and email as well...ironically she actually had a horrible bought with TE last season, and missed a big chunk of it. I think if she hadn't missed so much that she would have gotten bumped to 3.5 as well.

I know and also work with her pro, and he is 100% percent sure that her problems (which are now reoccuring) are from bad technique on her forehand. I played her in singles recently, and she talked about it, and she knows that is the problem as well, and instead of taking time off is just trying to correct the technique. Knowing her, she won't be taking time off anytime soon! She's a good player, and works very hard on her game.
