I'm not really a Cone fan but I'm always interested in her results because for whatever reason I find her oddly intriguing. Besides, she's always prone to some sort of meltdown on court so that keeps it fun.
Eurosport called her performance today against fellow pastry Stephanie Cohen-Aloro "diabolical." Somehow with the scoreline of 60 63 I think they were being kind.
Kid has a lot of points to defend in the clay season. This is so not a good start. And yes, you're welcome for that insightful tennis analysis.
