Next great US hope Beatrice Capra loses to Petra Rampre in Florida 25K

3-6, 6-2, 5-7 in the first round.

Rampre being of course, a well known powerhouse of the ITF tour who has spent the last nine years or so ranked between 400 and 600. Go Amerika.

1. Trice was never heralded as our next big hope. Certainly a good prospect, but never as hyped as Oudin, McHale, Vandeweghe, or Stephens.
2. Her poor form lately is due in part to her trying to improve her game. She generally was a mostly defensive player and counterpunched (if you look at her USO draw, she played Sprem, then Rezai... two of the biggest UE machines on tour). She has said in a couple interviews said she is trying to add more offense to her game before heading to college. She wants to eventually be on tour and knows she has to add some more aggression if she's going to be successful. A transition like that will take time.
3. She's already committed to Duke and will attend there for at least two years.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Happy for Petra but Capra´s result wasn´t very good nowadays as simonsaystennis said

Definitely Riske´s loss to some 24 years old girl never ranked higher than 796 is more alarming.

Why is any new American, the next great US hope? We've had like 10 over the past couple years.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

Beatrice was NEVER the next great US hope. She got very lucky with her draw at the US Open by going up against 2 of the biggest brainless ball bashers on tour. Her pusheresque game suits well against players who after 5 shots hit it into the wall or into the net.

I reckon she would rather go to college..seriously...being a journeywoman at such a young age is no fun

Re: Next great US hope Beatrice Capra loses to Petra Rampre in Florida 25K

She never was America's next hope, she just had a good run to the 3rd round of the US Open until Sharapova double bageled her

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
