    I've watched you play and I really like those hard-hitting serves. And after I've learned that you ranked number 1 in the singles, I appreciate you more. I like how you play inside the court. You're a strategic player. Hope that you'll have a good tennis year this 2009. You're my number 2 best tennis player.God bless.

    It is a 'corruption' when we are not able to see what lies behind or ahead of us. The temperature rises to means we are not aware.. Let us be thankful for this moment in time, and appreciate before it is too late....Thanking the Gods for our dear life and striving hard to achieve, is what I'm talking about,..july30.09

    Hi Dina. You played nice at the Oz Open 09. Serry is a tough opponent. But you're improving with each tourn. Take it as it comes and, the very best...(july1.09)

    Posted on May 31, 2009 at 20:19 ET


    pls think about changing the tops you wear on court. this showing ur belly a la brittney spears is really out of fashion, and while you're an attractive girl and a talented player, that part of your body is not your strongest suit.
    good luck
