This kid came out like a fighter yesterday.......combative and precociously talented. She took on Serena playing her best post pregnancy tennis and shut her down. It wasn't an accident that Williams appeared increasingly hesitant.
And when Williams rallied in the second set.....it was the kid against Williams and 20000 rabid New Yorkers, who cheered her mistakes. But she showed incredible guts and produced a clinching surge of her own.
Not a media creation like the other Canadian... Bouchard.....Blanca looks like a new top 5 player on the scene.
