Re: Womens Tennis in General
When Caro's season finishes, usually my interest in tennis goes dormant until the start of the next year approaches. But this year, I think I'll keep my eye on one more event after Sofia: next week's 125 Challenger in Pune, India.
Donna Vekic will be playing there. She's ranked #114 atm, so with a good result she'll be in the MD for AO age 16½. That would be a little faster than Caro whose first GS MD was FO 2007 but not quite as fast as Paszek.
Speaking of teenagers, the currently youngest player in top 100 is 18 yo Annika Beck from Germany. She may be the next big thing in the German resurgence but I think I echo the thoughts of many when I ask "Who on earth is she?". She has won all of 2 WTA MD matches in 2012 and the WTA site doesn't even have a profile picture of her yet! She has reached her rankings through great ITF results and winning a number of WTA Q-matches.
Madison Brengle: "I'd rather chew on a pinecone than play this match (against Wozniacki)."
Nicole Melichar: "Do you want me to go find you one?"
