I think Petia's deserving her own thread now.
She's through to the QFs at European Junior Championships
in U16 category this week, with some really great wins!
She double-bagelled Judit Catarna Alana in R1 (
), beat (3)Anna Kalinskaya (world #20) 3-6 6-3 6-3 in R2
, double-bagelled Sofia Sualehe in R3 (
), and defeated Georgina Axon 6-1 4-6 6-0 in R4.
So far, we can tell she's pretty much on a roll!
She will face Swiss Ylena Il-Albon in QF - let's see if she can keep up this excellent form! Hayde!
A little background
She was born on April 26, 1998 in Plovdiv (same city as Tsveti Pironkova
) and still lives Plovdiv. Currently, she's ranked #335, but she reached a CHR of 274 earlier this year.
Highlight of her season so far was a SF in G3 Kenana Cup in Bulgaria (lost to eventual winner (2)Maryna Veksler in SF, 6-7(5) 1-6).
In June, she also qualified for 10K Nis in Serbia (lost to Dejana Radanovic 2-6 5-7 in R1); and reached R2 of 10K Prokuplje (in Serbia too) as a qualifier - beat Bojana Marinkovic 4 & 4 in R1, and fell 2 & 1 to top seed Lina Gjorcheska in R2.
GL in QF of EJC, Petia. Hayde!
