Re: Verónica Cepede Royg - Paraguayan Prospect
$10K La Serena
Quarterfinals: Veronica Cepede Royg(3) def. Mariana Demichelli Vergara(5) 6-2 6-1
Ruthless. She's also in the doubles final with Fernanda Brito.
Her win/loss record this year is 22-5. And two of those losses she nearly won, one was against Dubois in Fed Cup. It's really been a great transitional year for Veronica, she has improved out of sight even just since August.
It will be interesting to see how she goes next year making a larger dent on the tour, whether she can find the same success on hardcourts and at a higher level. Of course, she is taking one thing at a time and couldn't really be doing much better than she is right now.
Her ranking is now #659 and could be as high as #622 if she wins the title this week.
She'll play #2 seed Gabriella Barbosa-Costa Silva in the Semifinals. I would say it should be another straight sets victory for Veronica but you never know. Keep it up!!!!
