My initial post was as much to find out if these girls train in Florida, The UK or some other place and whether the LTA provides their training because plainly they must be doing something right !
Gabi has a blog. She trains in Marbella Spain and plays extensively on the TenissEurope tour, where she has played Maia quite a bit. In fact they are friends and were roommates in Miami.
