Last time I saw Lesley play was in 2005, at age 13. She was a smart player then. But what I understand from the match reports in Australia she has developed her game and is now quite a big hitter. Smart and big hitter sounds promising. She's one of the few Dutch junior players who gives 100% for tennis.
She is a big hitter She hits the ball very nicely. I think the day I saw her, the forehand was more solid but she still hit the backhand very well. Can tell she was raw talent.

Just checked her site and it celebrates Arantxa's win

Re: Lesley Kerkhove

That's not too bad. She held up her seeding in any case.

Re: Lesley Kerkhove

Yes Lost to the 5th seed in the semis. I think the 5th seed had already beaten the 1st seed Romana Tabakova so not a bad loss.

Re: Lesley Kerkhove

Lesley verliest in de 2e ronde (na in de 1e ronde een bey te hebben gehad) van het G1 Toernooi "Beaulieu Sur Mer" met 3-6, 6-2, 3-6 van Mariya Malkhasyan (UKR). De Oekraïnse is de nummer 90 bij de junioren...

Re: Lesley Kerkhove

Lost in the first round of Roland Garros Juniors.

But made the doubles final with Arantxa. Lost in a tough three setter though.

Yeah, she should have won that semi at Roehampton against Oudin too (I was there). Possible 3rd r match up against Oudin at Wimby.
