Re: Where Michelle Larcher de Brito will finish this year?

I think she'll be able to reach the top 100, more than that would be too much of a task imo. I think she can play 3 more tournaments until the end of the year(i said i think, if im wrong im sorry) if that's so, it's highly unlikely that she will rise more than that.
Anyway at the age of 15 reaching the top 100 would be quite something

Re: Where Michelle Larcher de Brito will finish this year?

by the end of this year, Top 100 would be an amazing achievement!

by the end of next year, Top 20 is certainly possible!

Re: Where Michelle Larcher de Brito will finish this year?

As of this week, Michelle had 127 points. She earned 50 from Stanford (35 for reaching R2, plus 15 points for getting through qualifying). So she'll have 177 points next week, which indeed puts her in the Top 170.
I'd like to think she could hit the Top 100, but this week's No. 100 player has 346 points, which means Michelle would have to almost double her points in three events - a very tall task. A Top 120 finish is more reasonable, as the No. 120 player has 296 points. It'd still be a lot of points to gain, but I think she can do it.

Re: Where Michelle Larcher de Brito will finish this year?

Top 200 just to be safe. I wanna see how she does in her next event and maybe I'll say 120 but 200 for now.

Re: Where Michelle Larcher de Brito will finish this year?

With a good draw at USO, she can qualify and win a match or 2 in MD so Top100 seems possible.

Re: Where Michelle Larcher de Brito will finish this year?

i picked top 100, but that was before i read that she can only play 4 more tournaments + USO. so im guessing just outside the top 100.
i can see her having a good USO run if she has a good draw (im sure she wont have a problem qualifying)

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Where Michelle Larcher de Brito will finish this year?

She will probably squeek into the top 100 but not by much. As she has age restrictions as to how much she can play, she won't be playing many events. A couple of bad draws and even her chance at finishing top 100 this year is gone. Not that she should worry. She has a good career ahead of her. How good right now is anybody's guess.

Re: Where Michelle Larcher de Brito will finish this year?

It is hard to say - the girl has obviously talent, but she seems to be a headcase too. So as her rank grows, she will be more often exposed in the role of favorite, which may be a tough test for her mental side.
