Shelby Rogers is home! Fourteen years after her FCC debut (as a ball girl), Shelby earned her first direct entry to the FCC main draw this year. And this past Monday she moved into the second round by defeating 64th ranked Silvia Soler-Espinosa from Spain. Next up for Shelby: the winner of Russia’s Anatasia Pavlyuchenkova (#34 in the world) vs. Spain’s Sara Sorribes Tormo (an 18 year old qualifier who is #195 in the world).
