despite people pigeon-holing her into that position since she splashed onto the scene.
It is strange too since you would think U.S fans and officials would really be excited about the idea or hope of her succeeding. In the past they even overhoped for some people. You would think they would be excited to pray for a return to atleast the Cohen days they were regularly contending for medals. Yet you are right on Tennel they tend to underplay and hope for the minimum. Maybe it is they are secretly hoping for someone else to supplant her as the U.S senior #1 to hype (Liu probably), I don't know.
