Isabelle Wallace

Just wanted to point out that 17 y.o. Isabelle defeated much highly ranked Varvara Flink of Russia 7-5 6-2 in the Roland Garros Junios. Varvara Flink is ranked around 313th in the world at the moment, and has some stellar results. It appears that this win is more of a one off from what I can find at first glance because it doesn't seem like Wallace has anything else to back up this win. I was curious if anyone else knew about Wallace.

Re: Isabelle Wallace

I was going to call this thread "necessary on a bicycle" if I'd made it (so it's as well I didn't).

She's from Inverness, I think, but she represented Australia until the start of last year.

I've never seen her in the flesh, but photos suggest she's exceptionally good-looking.

EDIT: Here's a story from just before her return with biographical details: http://www.inverness-courier.co.uk/S...Down-Under.htm

Re: Isabelle Wallace

She was interviewed on the ITV 4 coverage today, as was Katie Boulter. She's a Scot with the accent but spent a few years in Oz. Currently training in Spain.

And yes, she is a looker.

Re: Isabelle Wallace

Stunning comeback today.

After going down 6-0, 2-0, she came back to win 0-6,6-3, 6-4.

Next round against Francoise Abanda, who is ranked around 188 in seniors looks very tough.

This win may be enough to boost her ranking to guarantee her a US Open Juniors MD ticket; after which she's 18.

Re: Isabelle Wallace

Loses 5-7 6-7(8) to Abanda. Way closer than I would have expected.

Re: Isabelle Wallace

I hadn't realised she had switched nationalities.

She got a MDWC into 50K Nottingham this week, but fell badly in R1 to Nicole Gibbs, 2 & 2.

Re: Isabelle Wallace

She's playing G1 Roehampton now. Beat Natalia Vikhlyantseva 4 & 3 in R1. Good win!

Re: Isabelle Wallace

She lost in R2 to (15)Fanny Stollar 5-7 6-7(3). So close!

Re: Isabelle Wallace

Wimbledon

(14)Sandra Samir (EGY) v Q
Isabelle Wallace (GBR) v Julia Grabher (AUT)
Jana Fett (CRO) v Q
(2)Catherine Cartan Bellis (USA) v (wc)Maia Lumsden (GBR)

Tough match in R1. If she wins it, I can totally see her getting past (14)Samir. GL!

Re: Isabelle Wallace

Destroyed Grabher 1 & 2! Good win.

R2 vs. (Q)Michaela Gordon, who defeated (14)Sandra Samir in 3 sets in R1.

Re: Isabelle Wallace

Lost 2-6 7-5 6-8. Must be an heartbreaking loss for her.

Oh, yeah, and I knew this, I'm sure, but hadn't fixed it in my memory: she's cack-handed.

Re: Isabelle Wallace

Isabelle beats Amy Bowtell to reach the QF of the Winnipeg 25K ("it's in the same week as the US Open qualies, you know"), which should also be played today (local time).
