Her run in the tournament, which was a Tier I event, included wins over seeded players Nathalie Tauziat and Lori McNeil. She made the third round of both the French Open and US Open in 1995. Notably her performance at the French Open included becoming the first player to beat Amélie Mauresmo in a Grand Slam match and ended at the hands of eventual champion Steffi Graf. In 1996 she appeared in three Fed Cup ties for Italy, against Sweden, Norway and Belarus.
