    Yay, congratulations to Tammy my countrywoman! Hope she does well at Wimbledon. Unfortunately her compatriot who is a junior Grand Slam champion lost in the qualifying round despite receiving a wild card into the qualifies. Why can’t see receive a wild card into the main draw like Laura Robson? Guess because she’s not British. 😛

    Congratulations Tammy for your 3rd WTA title at 32!!! Wow! You showed us that age doesn’t matter. Superb indeed 🙂

    Last year Safina said: “(Tanasugarn) plays very different, she has some unbelievable angles and just made me go crazy in the mind.”

    With this year’s victory, it seems Tammy has reached tennis jedi-hood!
