Congrats AGAIN, Barbora on winning the AVT $25K Women's Challenger, at Fort Walton Beach Tennis Center, Florida. My husband, Ken and I, were there during your Quarterfinals. We were sitting behind you, courtside. Supporting you, even though you were down 5-0, in the second set. I said, "Come on, FIGHT BACK", and you DID! You CAME BACK from 5-0, in a second set, and went on to win the match, in 3 sets! That is the making of a TRUE CHAMPION! We came back again, for your semi-final and the final, to SUPPORT YOU! I didn't know who you were until i saw you play for the first time. I thought to myself, this girl is REALLY GOOD! You are a FANTASTIC PLAYER! People came up to me, wondering if i was your mother or sponsor, haha, and i said "no". They asked me if i was rooting for you and i said, "yes". They asked me why, and i told them, that i thought you were a ALL-AROUND GREAT PLAYER, and just sometimes slam your racket, haha. GOOD LUCK in all your future tournaments and hope you will be playing in the Family Circle Tennis Cup, at Daniel Island, South Carolina, in April. We will be looking for you! SMILE Thanks for all the entertainment you gave my husband and I. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Take care! P.S.-Tell your husband to be there UNTIL THE END of your matches.....he missed a good one! Haha! Barbara :-)
