She ain’t toast

I take it all back. 

Those low-seeds at major tennis tournaments I was talking about?  They're not toast like the guys in red uniforms in Star Trek who always seem to die.

In Julie Coin's case, the low seed is actually the toast of the town.

Coin, the 188th ranked player in the world, upset top-ranked Ana Ivanovic today at the U.S. Open.

According to the Associated Press, the 25-year-old was considering retiring from tennis earlier this year after struggling to make any progress toward playing her way into the top 100 in the rankings.

"I guess maybe now I'm going to think about, like, keep playing," Coin said.

Yeah, that'd probably a decent idea Julie.

Coin will face Amelie Mauresmo in the next round of the U.S. Open.
