Will the 14 years-old Canadian junior Katarina Zoricic be the next Carling Bassett? <br />
She currently trains at Evert Tennis Academy. She is SO TALL! Let's see how she fares professionally:
Currently WTA ranked 1115 and played 4 pro events so far:
1) ITF 10K Montreal, CAN Lost 1R in main draw
2) ITF 10K Lachine, CAN Lost 1R in main draw
3) Bank of the West Classic; Sanford, California, Tier II<br />Qual R1 M Pelletier def. K Zoricic-WC 7-6 6-2
4) ITF 25K Vancouver, CAN Lost 2R in qualifying draw
In a junior event, she has teamed up with Tatiana Golovin last week in the Chanda Rubin event in Texas. They lost in the final. Very proud of her!
She must be something! I have always want to cheer for a new Canadian (where I come from!) player since Carling Bassett left the tour.
I haven't found one until this Katarina Zoricic hit me! She's only 14, a few months older than Maria Sharapova! I love her smile, very friendly (see above). I should have seen her in Vancouver when she was competing this past summer! Damn! I will follow and watch her a few times in Vancouver and Montreal next summer for sure! I want to see her!
GO KATARINA! JUST DO IT FOR CANADA!
