Golden Squid Report
Christina McHale (Golden Squid since 6/29/2012) - McHale's in a bit of a tail spin at the moment. Her first round loss to Yulia Putintseva (Kazakhstan) was her eight consecutive lost match. She didn't fair much better in doubles. She and partner Eleni Daniilidou (Greece) lost in the first round the second-seeded team of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka. Hopefully, she can get back on track with the upcoming North American hard court swing.
