ITF Juniors Logo: UPDATE -- the "mystery" finally solved :)



It´s supposed to be a Czech player and the picture is more than 5 years old.

I think it is safe to say that it´s nobody that subsequently made it to - say - the top 200 (with the possible exception for Hlavackova - well, she is blonde, but she looks differently, IMHO).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: ITF Juniors Logo: which player is on that picture?

We had a thread about this a couple of years ago and as far as I can remember, no one could figure it out.

Re: ITF Juniors Logo: which player is on that picture -- UPDATE

OK, the picture is actually 8 years old. It turns out that the girl in that picture is the Czech junior player Soňa Nováková (18/02/1989); Career High Combined: 74 (06 Feb 2006)





You may found more pictures of her (and even a few vids) here:

It is actually a quiz question on a Czech tennis website and it has been just privately confirmed to me that Sona Novakova is the right answer.

Plus I found the following article: http://www.peachbeltconference.org/s...0090513itawten

Well, to be honest, I would have never solved it, but for the fact that Sona Novakova herself contributed in the "quiz thread" under the nickname "Sonik"; so my guess was that her actual first name was "Soňa" (= Sonya) and then it became pretty easy to find out her real identity.

Sona Novakova!

Looks like a mix of Kirilenko and Kutuzova

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck
Serena Williams Maria Sharapova Jelena Jankovic
A. Radwanska V. Zvonareva C. Wozniacki N. Petrova M. Hingis
T. Paszek A. Chakvetadze K. Sprem J. Dokic I. Tulyaganova A. Myskina
