Want a flashback? Here’s a good one.
Going through the nearly-full external hard drive trying to purge, we came across this early attempt (underline: attempt) at shooting match video at the 2010 US Open.
It was the third round of the juniors girls, and two unseeded 1994s were going at it.
You might recognize them: Genie Bouchard and Ons Jabeur.
(There’s a Gaby Dabrowski cameo in there; Dabrowski and Bouchard played doubles together that year).
Daria Gavrilova (now Saville) defeated Yulia Putintseva in the final, after getting past Stephens in a third-set tiebreak in the semis.
Jabeur, who is in the Charleston semifinals this weekend, was beaten by Putintseva in the semis in 2010.
Oh – and another undiscovered gem: Canadian Katarena Paliivets, who was one of the players in the early days of the national centre in Montreal, came up against No. 4 seed Elina Svitolina in the first round.
And gave her a fairly tough time.
Here’s that one.
