Larcher de Brito in Memphis

Michelle Larcher de Brito, the 15-year-old who unexpectedly won the Orange Bowl in December, and who plays World Team Tennis for the Sacramento Capitals, is into the second round of the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships in Memphis. Her opponent, Stephanie Cohen-Aloro, retired shortly after the beginning of the second set, sending Larcher de Brito into a contest with either Milagros Sequera (nice to see her back!) or Caroline Wozniacki.

Should Larcher de Brito manage to defeat either of those players, she would have to face Lindsay Davenport in the quarterfinals...that is, assuming Davenport gets past Sabine Lisicki in the first round.
