Louisa Chirico

Does anyone know more about this 16 y/o American? She caught my attention from beating Vickery this week! Does she have the potential to make it far?

Re: Louisa Chirico

I am bery impressed as well but do not know much about her game either!

She plays Gajdosova tomorrow which will be a real test, so hopefully that can give us some indication of where her game is at

Re: Louisa Chirico

I think she was undefeated in the Junior Fed Cup last year. She trains in New York and her favorite surface is clay.




Quote:
The hidden jewel of this team was Louisa Chirico — let’s just say she won’t be the lesser-known anymore. This was her first inclusion on a USTA team. She trains at the USTA training center at the National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows.

Chirico, a New York native out of Eastchester, not only won all five singles matches she played this week, but she won them all in straight sets. She has a beautiful game to watch and no matter who they put in front of her she just got down to business. Chirico said she was nervous today, but you could’ve fooled me. She was gliding around the court as if she’s always played on red clay.

If I had to guess I’d expect to hear good things from these three teens as they move ahead in pursuing their tennis. When you come into an event like this and win all five of your matches as Townsend and Chirico did, it’s an indication that dreaming of a pro career is no pipe dream. Andrew’s didn’t have an opportunity to show off her singles skills here, but she told me at the U.S. Open that singles is a priority. We’ll watch as she plays singles elsewhere, but we certainly know that she’s an asset in doubles.

From this picture, she is taller than Taylor and shorter than Gabby:



Taylor is 5'-6 1/2" (link) and I'm not sure how tall Gabby is. From twitter, it was said that Louisa has a nice serve and solid groundies.
