Cool Katerina Dimitrova

12 yo Kati (born Jan 9, 2004) from Plovdiv has had an extremely impressive year, she is one of the top U12 European girls at the moment (and it's rare to have a Bulgarian girl amongst the usual top Russian girls)!

Her W-L record so far this year is 33-2, out of the 7 U12 tournaments she's played this year, she won 5.

But I think her most impressive moment this year was 2 months ago, when she carried Team Bulgaria to winning the Tennis Europe Nations Challenge: she didn't lose a singles match, beat other strong girls like Aliona Falei (twice), Linda Fruhvirtova, Lucija Ciric Bagaric, Vanessa Popa Teiusanu with ease!
In the final, Team Bulgaria (Kati, Stella Peeva & Denislava Glushkova) beat Belarus 2-1, Kati & Stella winning their singles matches against respectively Aliona Falei and Evialina Laskevich in routine fashion.

Next year, Kati will jump up an age category, and it should be an interesting and challenging test (moving up to U14 tournaments from U12 ones can be pretty tricky!), I'm looking forward to seeing how she manages it!

Re: Katerina Dimitrova

Kati is through to another final this week, at G12 Open Benjamins Gradignan-Gironde in France!

She hasn't dropped a set so far, hasn't dropped more than 7 games in a match (most matches she lost between 1 & 3 games)...

And she'll face fellow Bulgarian Denislava Glushkova, whose path to the final was way more complicated than Kati's (4 out of her 5 matches were 3-setters), in the final. Denislava will probably be a little tired, hayde Kati!

Re: Katerina Dimitrova

Zykova got thrashed by 15th seed Jade Haller in R3 (she won only 1 game)... This is really weird :-/

Stella & Denislava both are through to the QFs though, which is great to see (Stella almost lost in R3 though )

Re: Katerina Dimitrova

Kati keeps flopping: she was the top seed at U12 Orange Bowl but lost 2-6 6-7(2) to Denislava Glushkova in R1, and this week at Cat. 1 G14 O1 Christmas Cup in Khimki, she was the 12th seed, had a bye in R1 and lost 1-6 6-4 3-6 to WC Ekaterina Kuznetsova in R2

Neither Glushkova nor Kuznetsova are bad at all actually, but it's still pretty embarrassing and disappointing...

Re: Katerina Dimitrova




Kati was the 12th seed at Cat. 1 G14 O1 Properties Christmas Cup in Russia last week, she had a bye in R1 and lost to dangerous leftie WC Ekaterina Kuznetsova (same exact age) in R2, 1-6 6-4 3-6 :-/

Her sudden flopping is a bit wtf, hopefully she starts winning matches again asap!
