Doubles specialist Liezel Huber became an American yesterday. “It’s amazing,” Huber said about her new citizenship. “I’ll be playing in the US Open as an American. So, that’s a dream come true.” World No.4 in doubles has lived in Houston for some time, and together with her husband was actively engaged in helping the victims of Katrina and Rita in Louisiana.
Note: Liezel Huber and her doubles partner Cara Black of Zimbabwe are currently ranked No.1 in the Race to the Sony Ericsson Championships. (sources: Women Who Serve, ABC)
