The Lalla Meryem Cup in Morocco, heralded the start of the LET spring season, and, to be honest, it was great to get out in the sun again although the 38 degree wind blowing off the desert was a little warm. Zuzana Kamasova of Slovakia became the first Slovakian to win an LET event and proved to be a very popular winner.
The back story to the event is pretty good as well. Zuzana failed to get her full card at school in 2010 and had stated that it was a dream of hers to get her full card and maybe win an event. She was playing in Morocco on an invitation from the only female Moroccan professional, Maha Haddioui, who herself has been invited to the Slovakian open that is hosted by Zuzana. Zuzana's win gives her a 3 year exemption as well as a start in the prestigious Evian Masters
