Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

3/6 6/3 6/7(4)
She was 4/9 on BPs and won 9 more points than her opponent and still lost the match
She did make up for it by reaching the doubles final, although she lost 11-9 in the super tiebreak

R1 d. Alexandra Nancarrow AUS (#631) 2-6 7-5 6-0

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

10K Heraklion:
R1 d. (WC) Angeliki Kairi GRE (#1109) 6-1 6-0
Impressive scoreline, it's been a while since the last time she played in Greece

Seeded third in doubles with Sakkari. I believe the last time they played together was over two years ago in that infamous Fed Cup doubles match

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

6-1 6-7(1) 6-0
Not sure what happened in the second set, but hey at least she won
QF vs. (8) Valentini Grammatikopoulou GRE (#549)

They played each other here last year and Valentini won 7-5 in the third in a 4 hour match. Would be interesting to see what happens between the two of them this time.

Despina and Maria also won their doubles today 6-3 6-3, so they play (2) Benoit BEL/Zimmermann BEL in the SF

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

5-7 2-6 against Valentini

6-0 6-1 in doubles semis
F l. to Dzalamidze RUS/Grammatikopoulou GRE 7-6(6) 3-6 5-10

So this year she has been in one singles final and five doubles finals, and she lost each and every one of them

This week's 10K in Heraklion:
R1 d. Agni Stefanou GRE (#727) 6-3 6-4
R2 vs. (Q) Alice Bacquie FRA (#1173)

Doubles with Leykina (RUS)
R1 BYE
QF vs. Ponomar GER/Wachaczyk GER

Despina is the top seed in singles and doubles
Also her ranking fell down to 391 this week, so she needs to really pick up her form

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari

6-3 6-3
F l. to (7) Maria Sakkari GRE (#570) 1-6 6-1 3-6

Strangely they had never played each other before in singles
Still a good week for Despina. Maria has been on fire this week barely dropping games

And Despina won 6-2 6-2 in doubles so she finally got a title in doubles after losing all 5 of her finals this year!

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

100K France:
QR1 d. (8) Amandine Hesse FRA (#223) 5-7 6-2 6-4
QR2 l. to Maria-Elena Camerin ITA (#236) 6-2 3-6 4-6
She won 7 more points than Camerin and still lost
Still amazing to beat a player who had a MDWC for the French Open and then she almost beat a former world number 41

50K+H France:
QR1 d. Karolina Wlodarczak AUS (#846) 7-5 4-6 6-2
QR2 l. to Leolia Jeanjean FRA (#662) 3-6 2-6

25K Russia:
R1 l. to (5) Valentyna Ivakhnenko UKR (#267) 3-6 0-6
Lost R1 doubles as well, but it must've been cool for her to play against experienced players in doubles (Bychkova and Rodina)

15K Bosnia:
R1 d. Martina Kubicikova CZE (#419) 7-6(2) 6-3
R2 d. Olga Doroshina RUS (#390) 6-4 6-4
QF l. to (2) Barbora Krejcikova CZE (#308) 2-6 4-6
Also lost doubles SF

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

10K Egypt:
R1 d. (Q) Dina Hegab EGY (NR) 6-0 6-1
R2 d. Caroline Rohde-Moe NOR (NR) 6-0 6-1
QF d. (Q) Raluca Georgiana Serban ROU (#1107) 6-1 6-0
SF d. (3) Elena-Teodora Cadar ROU (#391) 6-3 6-4
F d. (1) Anna Morgina RUS (#354) 6-1 6-3
First singles title in over three years, finally!

And she also won the doubles title here, so that's two titles in one week without dropping a set in either event, BRAVO DESPINA!
