"Carla Effect" Push New Spaniards to Win !!!

It seems, Carla Suarez's QF in Roland Garros had an effect in the young spanish girls.
Today in Barcelona Tier IV, Maite Gabarrús (1989, 432) and Leticia Costas (
1990, 541) advanced through the Qualys with victories over Top-200 players. They are promising players, in fact Maite was European Finalist Under 16 (l. to Cornet) but without great victories in the tour, now with Carla example they saw that IS POSSIBLE!!!

BCN Qualys
1R Leticia Costas (WC) def Hlavackova (5) 5/7 6/0 6/2
2R Costas def Bou 6/4 6/3
3R Costas def Jidkova (2) 6/1 0/6 7/5 (from 3/5 in the last set!!!)

1R Maite Gabarrús def Sheila Solsona 7/6 6/4
2R Gabarrús def Chvojkova (7) 7/6 7/6
3R Gabarrús def Silva (3) 6/1 4/6 6/3



P.D.: In fact, some years ago, Maite used to beat Carla in Spanish National championships!!!
P.D.: R1 M. J. Martínez-Sanchez def Wozniak 6/4 6/1

If not injuries, Maite would probably have been inside Top 100 now...

You're right, but now she's healthy and doing very well lately.

Re: "Carla Effect" Push New Spaniards to Win !!!

I think Carla is a really nice girl, but her game is another Spanish stereotypical one. I think It's great for Spain to have so many representatives, but there should be more variety in their group.
