Lauren Davis

Time for Lauren to get her own cheering thread

So, this year has been a great year for Lauren. While I would say 2009 was her "breakout" year, this year she has really established herself as a force to be reckoned with in the juniors, and a player with some definite pro potential.

She just turned 17 not too long ago and is ranked just outside the top 400 in the pros (she hasn't played very many pro tournaments this year though. It's my understanding that those will be the focus next year).

Her highlights this year include:

GB1 Easter Bowl RU, GA Trofeo Bonfiglio RU, 10k Williamsburg W, 25k Bayamon W, G1 Yucatan Cup W, G1 Eddie Herr W.

She reached a career high junior ranking of 10 this week, and with her performance at the Orange Bowl (she will play the final tomorrow) she will move up even farther. Good luck in the final tomorrow Lauren!

Also she has been invited to play in the Australian Open WC playoff. There are some tough players there, so it will be really interesting to see how she does. Good luck!!

This is a tad off topic, but I have no idea why the USTA doesn't have The Tennis Channel broadcast at least the finals to tournaments as big as the orange bowl. It's better than a lot of the other crap they play

I totally agree . It would also get fans aware of and interested in players from the begining of their careers. I think it's a good idea for the USTA (and tennis in general) to start building a players fanbase as early as possible.

Btw, if i see another repeat of some random ATP red clay court tourney from earlier in the season i'm going to explode .

Re: Lauren Davis

Lauren wins the Orange Bowl

She def Grace Min in the final 6-3 6-7 6-1 Grace saved a couple of MP in the 2nd set TB. Nice to see her winning that 3rd set easily after missing those MP.

That makes it 24 straight wins (18 in juniors and 6 in seniors)

GL in the Australian WC playoff

Re: Lauren Davis

Lauren AMAZING end to the season!

The field for the Australian Open Wild Card Playoff is TOUGH but I think Lauren will be going in with a lot of confidence and the feeling like she has nothing to lose. I kind of want her to win it...

I saw this too! I congratulated her as well... you probably saw my post

The guy didn't type in very "natural-sounding" English. And I've never heard of the management company he posted. Could just be a spammer.

:lol Weird! I probably did see your post! And yea, it did seem odd, the only reason I thought it was interesting was because of the Fredricco part.
