Very disappointing loss in Stanford at the Bank of The West Classic but it’s all part of a process. I know it’s going to take time and I shouldn’t have expected so much from myself before the match. But I’m now in San Diego and looking forward to working more with my new team before the Mercury Insurance Open tournament starts on Monday.

Ana showed up to Kepler's books in Menlo Park to hear a book reading from inch and miles and do a short Q&A session afterwards about her definition of success, her family, and the pressures of being a tennis player. The event was packed out with both adults and kids to the point that Kepler's actually ran out of books. Heartening.
Here's video of her Q&A. Sorry it got shaky. I got a little cocky and tried to take video AND a pic on my BB. Multitasking multimedia, baby. I ain't good at it.
"Giving your best every day is all you can ask of yourself, and eventually it will bring out the best in you and your potential." Good stuff for kids to hear. Coach Wooden would be proud.
