Eggy, I see you don't have Nina Brattchikova included in your signature. You don't think she'll make it? She's been injured this year, not?

A Nina sighting! She seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth. Welcome back Nina!

Udachi Maria K!

Where is Maria Sharapova? Her junior schedule is lacking! If she was playing a challenger, I could understand her missing these 2 junior tournaments in Italy. But she hasn't played in about a month. And she needs proper preperation for the Junior French open. But she's not getting it.

Hello CatHat,

Yes, I noticed that too. I knew that MS won't be in the main draw. When I first read the article about Junior Italian Open at itfjunior.com site, it did not mention her name Maria Sharapova. So I was expecting though. Because she is the most popular junior player and if she was going to play there, it would put her name in the article obviously.

Very disappointed, indeed. At least we have another Maria to root for! Let's go Maria K!!

Since Maria Sharapova joined the ITF Junior circuit, I noticed that she played her preparation event of Grade 1 one week after or before the junior grad slam. For example, she played Grade 1 tournament one week after Jr. US Open and one week before Jr. Aus Open. So, she might enter Grade 1 tournament (38th Astrid Bowl, you can find at www.astrid-bowl.com) next week to prepare for Jr. French Open. The entry list has not posted yet. We have to keep our finger and toes crossed. She really needs to prepare cuz there is an extremely strong field for the Jr. French Open. Oh boy!

Poor Maria S, she is certainly lacking in her junior schedule. She missed 2 out of 3 Grade A events. Strycova and Casanova did not miss 3 Grade A events so far this year. Perhaps she has a lot of school work to do (she mentioned in the latest interview, remember?). Maybe that's the one of the reasons.

The most surprise was that Tatiana Golovin wasn't in the main draw. The article said that many eyes will be on her (meaning she would be there) but she is not there?! Is she injuried?

By the way Eggy, thanks for posting the draw! You are an excellent worker for keeping it up in WTAWorld.

I hope Vera (she is the only one who can beat her in the bottom half) beats Barbora Strycova! Go Vera! I want Maria K to go all the way but I have to be realisitc that hopefully Vera possibly meets Maria K in the QF and Vera will defeat MK.

I find that the top half is lighter for Myriam than for Barbora in the bottom half.

Go Maria K!

all things being equal

Myriam Casanova will make semis
winner of Linetskaya and Cetkovska in the 3rd rd are the likely semifinalists

Barbora Strycova has an easy ride until Semis

where she should face winner of Vera v Maria K QF providing Maria gets past another talent in Jarmila Gajdosova

there's also Lucie Safarova in the 3rd quarter as well
3rd Quarter is the hardest to predict.


it will be interesting to see how the US girls do here.
Jamea got them off to a good start, suprised by the scoreline rather than the win.

Good luck to my favs

Agree with you Eggy but you never know with Clijsters meeting Strycova!

Eggy, there are more latest results just updated.

Maria K wins easily 6-0, 6-2!

Myriam wins double bagels against the Russian! That's our Russian Wrecking Ball (as CatHat states) we know!
