I hope she'll do well in the US Open National Playoffs later this month, and gets the wild card. BTW, the woman she beat in that match I described, Yana Ruegsegger, also advanced to US Open National Playoffs, in mixed doubles with Miikka Keronen. Good luck to all of them!
...Colorado players. Mikka and Yana are quite the athletes, and have been dedicated players for a bunch of years, as they are both thirty somethings...the lesson being, Aim High, as they say in the Air Force, and don't let age be a barrier to your aspirations on court...
Watch the ball, hit it hard, and don't think...
