Congratulations to Bellis and her family. And, of course, to her coach and others too. I'm a long time fan of tennis ( began with Agassi's early days} and it always delights me to see and/or hear of such talented new comers. I missed this match but hope to see the next one. Your attitude is right on.

Unfortunately Ms. Bellis lost her second round match to a much weaker opponent than she beat in the first round. She did make a real match out of it. Congrats to her and her family -- maybe next year or the year after for further progress.
