Giant Qeen (born October 8, 2002) had a very promising 2015, and yesterday she won one of the biggest U14 tournaments - TIM Essonne -, so here we go
Qeenwen was the 2nd seed at TIM Essonne, she had a bye in R1, and she double-bagelled (LL)Melody Hefti in R2, beat Namie François 3-6 6-0 6-3 in R3, (Q)Lou Anne Guerbert 2 & 1 in QF, (3)Darja Semenistaja 7-6(2) 6-2 in SF, and Diane Parry (who upset top seed and Les Petits As finalist Denisa Hindova in R2) 0 & 2 in the final
This was her 2nd final this year, as she made the final of her first tournament of the year, G14 Nike Junior International Bolton, where she was seeded 3, beat top seed Himari Sato 6-4 7-6(5) in SF, before losing a dramatic final against fellow US girl Alexa Noel, seeded 5 - 0-6 2-6 5-7
Between these 2 tournaments she played the unofficial U14 Slam, Les Petits As, where she was the 8th seed, beat Federica Sacco 2 & 2 in R1 and (Q)Oksana Selekhmeteva 2 & 1 in R2, but was upset by (12)Vanessa Ong, 6-4 4-6 4-6 in R3.
Last year, she won 4 titles: G14 Vilamoura International U14 (beating Anna Arkaduianou 1 & 3 in the final), G14 Portimao International Tournamente U14 (6-1 4-2 ret. against Polina Shitikova in the final) and G14 Kystmesterskaberne (beating Clara Tauson 3 & 2 in the final) successively - she went 18-0 at some point last year
-, and G14 Audi GW: plus Zentrum Munchen Junior Open (beating Andjela Skrobonja 6-4 4-6 7-5 in the final).
At U14 Eddie Herr, she was the 4th seed, beat Petra Miszczak 1 & 1 in R1, but lost 4 & 4 to Margaryta Bilokin (who was a set away from snatching the title) in R2; and at the U14 Orange Bowl, she beat (LL)Sara De Oliveira 1 & 2 in R1, Viktoriya Tabunshcyk 7-6(9) 6-4 in R2, and (9)Adrienn Nagy 6-4 2-6 6-0 in R3, before losing badly to 5th seed Marta Kostyuk (who went on to make the Eddie Herr-Orange Bowl-L'es Petits As triple) in R4, 1 & 1.
Hopefully she can make more damage in these big US tournies this year!
Keep going Qeenwen
Edit: Wasn't she playing for the USA last year or am I crazy?
I initially created this thread in the US sub, before realising she was playing for China
