It was B.T. (Before Twitter). So most missed the drama.
Might mite Milagros (Milly) Sequera reached her first – and only – WTA final in Quebec City in 2003, facing 16-year-old Maria Sharapova. But she rolled her ankle.
Tears streaming down her face, she was wheeled out of the arena to huge applause.
Sequera reached No. 48 in singles and No. 29 in doubles – one of the best female players to represent Venezuela.
Now 38, she married Stephen Huss, earned a B.A. from Virginia Tech and a Masters from San Diego State this year.
She’s currently the manager of adult tournaments for the USTA.
