    I imagine she'll get even more after her win today at the Continental Cup, beating Samuels and Perkovic, among others. Great way to finish a great season.

    Of course you know that the people there sometimes insist on calling it The Ohio State University. The definite article seems to matter.

    The win matters to the individual because of the prize money, but for the Americas team, all places matter. (The meet is scored 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1.)
