    Yes, she made the singles Semis at Wimbledon in 2013.
    I recall that my opinion of her as a junior was that she looked like the prototypical tennis player - very athletic - she just looked like an all-around athlete. She was also quite good at tennis, being ranked #1 in Juniors, winning the Junior US Open and Junior Wimbledon.
    One of her main rivals at the time was Michaella Krajicek (half sister to Richard), who was a year or two younger, and who hasn't made as much of an impact in the pros.

    No... nothing official. I know people who work in tennis in various capacities - players, coaches, linespeople/umpires, etc., like going to tournaments when I can, getting to know players, coaches on a level deeper than as just a spectator. I've coached a bit, but it's never been something I've wanted to commit to. I prefer the freedom of simply offering insights/suggestions here and there, when inspired to do so, and talking tennis on an interesting level with those I get to know.
