Brava Frankie;

It wounds me for you to lose. Although I don't prefer your vocalizations on court, I understand it's your way of firming-up your core. You miss the boat by not knowing to completely fill your lungs before squeezing and emitting a sound. Anything less than completely full lungs will result in a weak expression of power. Contact me by email and I will send you a copy of my short book "The Mechanism" (John Edwin Snyder III).
It will greatly improve your life.

Dear Fransesca,
thank you for the wounderfull tennis, yesterday. The game you played against our Justine is one of the most exiting games I've ever seen.During the game you made me think to a very special moment from my musiccarreer. In 1997 a had the opportunity to preform a concert in the arena in Amsterdam with Luciano Pavarotti. It was a concert for the Queen. One of the aria's wich he dedicated to her was 'donna non vidi mai' witch he translated as: "I've never seen such a beautifull woman like that" That's what you made me think of. Thanks again for the great tennis you're playing. That the best may win! Kind regards
Edwin Derde, Antwerp
