One of the personal disappointments of the week was Yanina Wickmayer’s relatively brief stay in the Family Circle Cup in Charleston. Way back when, a prediction was made on this blog that she was our dark horse for the tournament. After an impressive win over Vania King on Tuesday, Wickmayer bowed out to Yaroslav Shvedova yesterday. So it is Shvedova who will face Sabine Lisicki today instead. Maybe next year, Yanina. Expect to see her in the top 10 in the next couple of years.
Here’s practice video from Tuesday.
