Wink Banka Koper Slovenia open quali wildcard goes to 13-year old Nastja Kolar...

(I know it's not big news or a "bombshell")

Weird

Is that like one of the youngest player to ever enter a WTA tournament?

She won U18 Spring Bowl in St. Polten, and is 4th player on the world u14 with only 13 years of age. She has distinctive red hair

Ok, I don't know, is it a good decision?



Offcourse fedcup selector Mima Jausovec started sucking up to her already like she did first to Pisnik and then against Srebotnik when Pisnik wasn't good anymore.

Why not? I think it can only benefit her in the long run having some WTA experience.

Way too early in my opinion, she's going to get a huge beatdown and it won't really do anything for her game/confidence. I mean, it's not like it's even going to be a learning experience.

I dont think a player under 14 can even play a WTA match. I remember that issue happened with Sharon Fichman here in Canada.

Sorry, she'll be 14 four days before the qualies begin

Aren't U14 rankings done by Tennis Europe? That would be impressive for boys because, unlike ITFs they aren't nearly as strong as 16, 17, and 18 year olds. Instead, a 13 yr old girl should routinely be competing in junior ITFs because there is little growth in terms of muscle development.

She'll be raped and eaten alive, but she'll get a pay cheque.

I guess it cant do her any harm, as its totally her choice, but I dont think she is old enough IMO.

People she played already
Beating Kambic and losing to Ozegovic,both scorelines are decent!

Rest in Peace Bally!

Wasn't Michelle 14 when she beat Shaughnessy, 2 months after her 14th birthday? there's a list with the girls who won their first matches with 14 i think...
