Catherine "Cici" Bellis

This 14 year old tennis prodigy has a good future ahead of her.



Last year she won the USTA Girls 16 Clay Court Championships' singles crown at Virginia Beach Tennis and Country Club, her 4th USTA gold ball that she has won.

Also made it to the 3rd round of the Junior US Open.

Last week, won 3 qualifying matches at 25k Rancho Santa Fe CA, losing to Julia Boserup in the 1st round, pushing her to 3 sets.

This week, she's playing at 25k Suprise AZ, where she just won her 3rd straight qualifying match and straight set victory to make the MD.

Re: Catherine "Cici" Bellis

Thanks for starting a thread for her tie_breaker. I'll take her out of the 1998-2001 thread.

CiCi is our best prospect in quite some time IMO. She has dominated her age group and shown solid results in junior and now professional ITFs. Unfortunately drew #2 seed Sofia Arvidsson in Surprise but should be a great experience for her.

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong

She's definitely following in the footsteps of Townsend and Chirico...still early but she's pounding on all the right doors

Re: Catherine "Cici" Bellis

She seems really promising, I expect big things from her

And of course I have to mention it, she has a Greek name

Good luck against Arvidsson! Nothing to lose

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Catherine "Cici" Bellis

After she lost that first set to Arvidsson 6-1, I thought this match was over, but she found some way to comeback and with the second set 6-4, before losing the final set 6-4.

Not a total disappointment...hopefully, she'll get a better draw in her next tournament.

She'll need to improve on her serves...7 double faults.

If a video of this match is available online, please post the link. thanx!

Re: Catherine "Cici" Bellis

No doubt, I was expecting the score to be more like 6-1, 6-2 so still a morale victory on her part!
