Re: Seone Mendez (1999)

I was involved in coaching her for a while when she was very young.
She was tiny and was beating boys much bigger and older.
She is a lovely girl with a lovely family.

Re: Seone Mendez (1999)

She was up 5-3 against Hutchinson and the rain came down. Hopefully she can finish it tonight!

Re: Seone Mendez (1999)

I was a bit thrown by the birthdate in brackets..usually that's a sign someone is dead Anyway, moving on...

I like how Seone's gone about her tennis. She's not afraid to travel and go through the weekly grind, rather than stay here and play against no hopers. I'll be keeping an eye on this one

Re: Seone Mendez

Thanks for the pics Kev.

Looks to have some nice strokes and just by the stills, seems to be able to improvise and defend well.

Athletic too :-)

There's more to life than just being happy.

Re: Seone Mendez

I know she's a year older than Destanee, but they've had a few good battles if I recall?

Re: Seone Mendez

Serbia - G2

R1: (1)Mendez def. Jahren 6-2 6-0
R2: (1)Mendez def. (WC)Spasojevic 6-0 6-4
QF: (1)Mendez def. (WC)Christofi 6-2 6-2
SF: (1)Mendez def. (6)Gavrila

Not the way she would want to win the title. Very weak for a G2 but a great first tournament for her return the international competition. Also took out the doubles.

Kim Birrell, Sabine Lisicki, Abbie Myers, Priscilla Hon

Kristina Mladenovic, Heather Watson, Ana Konjuh, Zoe Hives
