Such a very beautiful and touching tribute (great video--please watch) to one of my all-time favorites of pro women's tennis, Jana Novotna. It is so sad to to lose her so young. I grew up watching her and admiring her game. I tried to model my game in many ways after her. She was a phenomenal tennis star and person. She had a beautiful tennis game, filled with skill and finesse! She was a great champion on and off the court! She will forever be in our hearts. We love you Jana.
