By making the fourth round, Jovanovski has achieved the best Slam finish of her career.  On the downside, she's gotten some fairly brutal press for her grunting.  A sample (best grunting is at the end, beginning at about 9:00):

Golden Squid Report

Richard Gasquet (Golden Squid since 6/27/2011) - Gasquet matched last year's performance by reaching the fourth round, losing to countryman Jo-Wilfred Tsonga (7th, France) in four sets.  He started off 2013 very strong, winning the Qatar Open in Doha.  He made the fourth round at all four Majors last year - a tough feat to match.
