Sesil Karatantcheva

I saw her match against Petrova last night, and, despite her loss, I think there is something special about that kid.
IMO, she will be great player very soon.

Here are some facts about her:
- she just turned 16 (few days ago)
- she played only 12 WTA tournaments in her career, and she is ranked 42nd, last week she was 38th (she appeared on WTA Tour Rankings at world No. 620 on Oct. 20 2003, at the end of 2004. she was 127th)
- she reached the quarter finals at Roland Garros and San Diego this year

Last year she won Roland Garros in juniors.

Looking at her yesterday, it seamed to me that she is quite tough mentally (she even reminded me on Serena at some moments), her movement is good, she has big shoots….

Anyway, those are the main reasons to think that Sesil will come in Top 20 very soon, and it looks like it will be some appearance…


What do you people think?

Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

I liked Sesil after her match with Venus. It sucked my Venus had to lose but I liked what I saw in Sesil. Not so much for her play in that match, but I liked her attitude. I saw more of her as she progressed and I think she can do very well. I hope she does.

If she reach the 3rd round she will be in Top30 and with play like vs Petrova she will reach it for sure

Finally a positive thread, THANKS

More serious, yesterday one thing came out even more clear she needs to get stronger. She doesn't have the body frame of the "big girls" and she will have to work a lot more to be able to compete with them. It will come with time but not this year. She changed already but now she has to build up more.

Some people wonder why she never reached a SF of a tournament and THAT is the reason, she is still weak in her body.

Otherwise she has a great attitude on and off court, she works hard and progresses, and that's why I like her.

What do you people think?

Finally we agree on something!
Tnx to you!

IMO, Sesil will be a great clay courter!
I think her future is on clay but she can be a force on other surfaces to provided she exert more effort and work hard enough ala Justine....

And i hope she, and her camp would be smart enough on planning a schedule for her to prevent injuries even if she was still so young!

Yes, she reached the quaters at Roland Garros this year and showed that she has a lot of talent. I think that she is able to enter the top 10 in a few years. she's an very interesting lady on the WTA - Tour.
