Welcome Shannon! (I remember I welcomed you too in one of the professional player forum, if I remember correctly).
Be prepared for the:
- what tension should my racket be?
- what racket should I use?
kind of questions! Ha-ha.

Shannon, welcome again!
as mentioned, you are trying to get qualified for the WC this year. how are you going about to achieving that? what kind of training routines are you going through? who's your coach? what do you think your chances are?

I am trying to qualify for worlds by training as much as I can, looking for as much sponsorship help as i can, and by competing in tournaments around the world. My chances are looking good so far!
My training schedule is always changing as there no longer is a official US national training center. When I am home in IL I am working out at my sponsor, the Wellness Center. Here I can do lots of machines, cardio, weights, etc. I also can take advantage of their hot and cold pools for aching muscles. I have no coach because at this time I can not afford one! Hopefully with some help from sponsors I will be able to move to a location in Europe where I can train full time in one location. I have spent the past month training and competing abroad learning from many different coaches. Last week I was training at the IBA, this week I am training with the Finnish National Team, and in a week I will train with the Dutch National team. I'm having a great time and hopefully I will be able to qualify for the WC in singles.

Out of curiosity, which University and county did you represent during your time in England?
What subjects did you major in?
(And good luck with getting more sponsors )
