Re: Goddess in the making: Despina Papamichail

Wow! I just realized it, and Despina should stop playing U16 Europe tournaments. She is only 15 and is ranked #3 there. She should play more ITF juniors. She won her last 2 singles tournaments and her last 2 doubles tournaments on the ITF junior circuit. She hasn't lost a set on that circuit in her 4 titles. She is ranked 584 there and only has 3 tourneys in her ranking. The other tourney was in Greece and she lost in R1 of singles and doubles, probably because of nerves. She needs to a big step to the next level. I think if she dedicates herself to the ITF juniors, she could play a slam next year.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
