12 year old Michelle Larcher de Brito is in the FINAL of 16's Eddie Herr!!!

She is sooooo talented. Just beat the top seed and the 16's European Champion in the 4th round. Trains at the Bollettieri Academy. Looks like Portugal could have a big star in the making!!! GO Michelle!!!! Now beating the number 2 in the ETA 16's in the quarters. This is Vaidisova, Sharapova like. She beat her doubles partner in the semis and plays a qualifier in the finals. Lets go Michelle, take the title!!!!!!!!!!!!!

if she's still in the game, that is... I certainly hope she's, but a lot of Bollitieri students get burned out very early.

Vassilissa is my girl............

That is really great! She's obviously talented.

Makes me wonder, who is the best WTA player from Portugal in history?

Astonishing.

I had heard those two clowns at Eurosport mention her a while back, and did a quick Google, but I had no idea she had this potential.

In history, no idea. Maybe Sofia Prazeres (career high #152)?

Currently, Frederica Piedade.

Kvitova * Vaidisova * Garcia * Robson


Eu Jogo Ténis


Prokofiev + Son Goku = pwnage

I already thought it wouldn't be a real 'accomplished' player. Not to disrespect, but I never heard of a really great female tennis player from Portugal!

Great to see this very young girl doing so well though!

Any pictures?
