Winning news

erakovic_yell_d Fantastic news overnight as NZ tennis star Marina Erakovic progresses to the next round at Wimbledon by beating her doubles partner Michaella Krajicek.

She's gone up the rankings like a rocket, a tribute to her coach Michiel Schapers, the early coaching of Chris Lewis (her coach from eight years of age to seventeen), and of course her own talent.  (No thanks to NZ Tennis, I'm afraid.)

In her second set against world number three Jelena Jankovic at the French Open last month, she shows she has what it takes to foot it on the world's biggest stage -- and now she confirms it.  Her career is going to be exciting to watch, as is the next fortnight.
