Re: Lauren Davis

Article on the ITF site:

http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/new...rticleid=22076

In the girls’ event, superlative Lauren Davis of the USA continued and incredible three-week winning streak on the ITF Junior Circuit, as she won her 18th match in 21 days. 17-year-old eighth seed Davis, a winner both at the Yucatan Cup and at the Eddie Herr tournaments, had to fight hard to beat fellow country-woman, unseeded Grace Min, before becoming the 30th American player to win the Dunlop Orange Bowl girls’ singles title since 1947.

The talented Davis started strongly, winning the first set 63, but then suffered an apparent drop in energy levels as she appeared to tire up under pressure from Min. However, Davis battled to a tie-break before she suffered an attack of nerves saw Davis dropp two match-points as she looked to clinch the title in straight sets. Min seized her opportunity to draw level in the match. In the decisive set, Davis recovered her composure and self-confidence as she worked her way into a commanding position. Davis sealed the match, and maintained her incredible recent unbeaten run, with a 63 67 61 victory.

“I wanted to take this Orange Bowl title so badly – said Davis - I was very nervous going into the match, but I usually benefit from my nerves. I played Grace last week in Eddie Herr so I knew what to expect. She has both a solid forehand and backhand and is very consistent. I played pretty well the first set, trying to take control of the points and doing a good job for the most part. In the second set, my energy level dropped a ton. I had two match points in the tiebreak and ended up losing them. Grace stepped it up and I was also a little tight. After the second, I was discouraged. I went to the bathroom to wash my face off and to calm my mind down a bit. I was tired, but I wanted to win and I wasn't going to let my fatigue get in the way of me winning this title”.

Lauren has been SO impressive lately! I think she has tons of potential despite her limited stature.
All the best in 2011 Lauren

Re: Lauren Davis

Lauren beat Jamie! 7-5 in the third. She led 5-2 and Jamie got it back to 5-5, but she held it together to win it.

Re: Lauren Davis

I was wrong, it was 7-5 7-5. Thought I heard umpire said Hampton won first set, but was wrong.

Re: Lauren Davis

Lauren had a few hard weeks, so I'm very happy that she won her match in play-offs. I think that she'll be a really good player in future. Every years few young Americans promotes in ranking about 200-400 places, for example Jamie Hampton or Sloane Stephens. Probably Lauren will elevate a lot in WTA ranking in 2011.. Good luck

Re: Lauren Davis

Davis was asked after the match if she was able to take any time off after all the recent tournaments. “I took one day off,” she said. “My legs are feeling a little bit tired. All these matches are starting to take a toll. But I think it’s just short term and then we have Christmas break so it will be fine.”

“It took me awhile to get used to her (Jamie Hampton) pace. She drills every ball. And it’s indoors so the balls are that much tougher to pick up and the courts are pretty fast.

“I’m not putting any pressure on myself. I’m just going for it.”
