Former top 300 who was about to break through and then tore her ligament, being 6-1, 5-1 up in a match and never recovered from that injury.

I remember Lara quite well, she was indeed doing well until that injury struck her.

Lara Michel siegt in Portugal







Lara Michel.




Die 25-jährige Schweizerin gewinnt ihr erstes ITF 15 000 $ Turnier.



Lara Michel, die in der jüngeren Vergangenheit mit verschiedenen Verletzungen zu kämpfen hatte, hat beim Hartplatz Turnier von Guimaraes beeindruckendes Tennis gezeigt. Nachdem sie sich erfolgreich durch das Qualifikations-Tableau gespielt hatte, gewann Michel ihre Spiele auf dem Weg ins Final jeweils in zwei Sätzen. Im Endspiel bezwang sie die Spanierin Marta Gonzalez Encinas mit 6:3 6:1.
Die eindrückliche Leistung der Schweizerin wird auch von diversen Statistiken untermauert. Michel liess ihren Gegnerinnen nie mehr als fünf Games zu und in drei ihrer fünf Main-Draw-Matches wurde sie kein einziges Mal gebreakt.

I sent them an e-mail this morning that they should write something about it and they did it really quickly, using pretty much exactly the info I gave them. Anyway, I am glad she gets some reward for it

Re: Lara Michel is back, wins 15K Guimaraes from qualies without dropping a set

Saw this girl two years ago in Bol and was convinced she will be top 100 very soon! She easily smashed all her opponents in those 2 weeks she played there back then! Very down to earth and hard worker! Few days ago she got up on my mind in way: Wait, where she is - must be top 100 or injured? I really hoped she (was) is not injured because I remember when she was playing in Bol she also was coming back from injury and had so fast improvement! So, finding this thread now is like sort of telepathy! Sad to hear she was injured but happy she find strength to come back again! True fighter!
Very talented, smart and all round player - if she stays 100% healthy, she will easily get to top 100 by the end of 2018! All the best Lara!

A coach I had a couple of lessons with was married at one point to Sandra Martinovic, who was the victor of that match Lara got injured in. I am glad she is doing well!
