Alejandra Nancarrez: her extraordinary journey into the glam world of European $10Ks

From the 'burbs of Canberra, she took her one-handed backhand off to Spain years ago and now we are watching history unfold. This is the story of Alexandra Nancarrow. Never before have we seen a young Aussie scour the entire Mediterranean region so thoroughly in search of the sparse WTA points and prizemoney handed out at the glamorous circuit of $10K ITF events.

She burst on the scene in 2009 to qualify for an Aussie $25K but since then has spent almost all of her time in Southern Europe playing $10Ks. She's played 67 in total. Yes, 67 $10Ks. She's played them in Spain, Italy, Greece, Morocco, Portugal, Austria, Romania, Belgium, Tunisia, Turkey, France and in South Korea where it all started back in 2009.

So why start a thread for her now? Well she's in Tunisia and Ms. Nancarroui has qualified for a $25K! It's her third $25K main draw ever.

Good luck Alex! We love* you!

Re: Alejandra Nancarrez: her extraordinary journey into the glam world of European $1

Just googled her and looks like she went to the French-English bilingual school they have in Canberra.

Now I love her even more and it also makes more sense as to why she's been so comfortable playing for so long in a non-English speaking country. (Yes, I know she's in Spain not France, but going to a bilingual school knocks the monolingual mindset that most Aussies have right out of your head so you'd be more likely to be comfortable in any foreign language situation).

you'd hope so by now! (Or maybe Catalan too/instead).

^I was hoping she'd be seeded in the doubles but no such luck and has drawn the top seeds She wouldn't have been far off being seeded either.

A R1 singles win would be amazing though

Are you guys using sofascore app as well?
Cause you can vote on who you think will win and Nancarroui already has 4 votes to Boev's 0

^ I'll subscribe. I wonder if Alex knows that there is a weird bunch of people following her every move.

Never fear. If you google Alejandra Nancarrez it takes you to this very thread. Just in case Alex decides to google herself one day soon.

There's more to life than just being happy.
