I featured the 6' 8" De Schepper on Day 2 of last year's Wimbledon. He has since improved his ranking 74 places. He also bettered last year's Wimbledon performance by one round.
Catching Up with Old Friends
Nina Bratchikova (Curtain Call, Australian Open Day 5) - The 26-year-old Russian continues her late career surge. This was the first Wimbledon main draw of her career. She didn't stay long this time, losing in the first round in both singles and doubles. In singles, she lost to Alize Cornet (France) in straight sets. In doubles, she and partner Anna Tatishvili (Georgia) lost to the 10th-seeded American team of Racquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears, also in straight sets.
