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!!
