Ready for the Big Girl tour? Larcher de Brito says "Yes"

It took two hours and twenty minutes, there were eleven breaks of serve, and the third set--from an electronic scoreboard viewer's vantage--appeared to be a thriller. Michelle Larcher de Brito has taken Agnieska Radwanska out of the Sony Ericsson Open, 2-6, 6-3, 7-5.

The 15-year-old from Portugal, who plays World Team Tennis and who unexpectedly won last year's Orange Bowl, entered the tour last year with a rank of 364, raised it to a high of 249, and is currently ranked number 255.

Larcher de Brito will play Shahar Peer in the third round.
