Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

Despina d. Meka 61 62
MD:
R64- (Q)Papamichail GRE d. Tan SIN 6-4 7-5
R32- (Q)Papamichail GRE vs. Issara THA
*Issara is ITF Junior #37
However, Despina is ranked and Issara isn't

Also, the new ITF Junior rankings came out this week, and Despina rose from out of the top 500 all the way to #398

It looks like Despina might have a shot at the MD of juniors at the US Open

Oh, and Despina is playing doubles with Zheng from China. In the first round they will face Agra and Patrimonio, both from the Phillippiens

PAME!!!!

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: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

Despina beat Thailand's Issara, junior world #37, 64 46 63
Then, in R16 Despina beat (15)Selis Mezer of Turkey, 64 06 64
In QF, Despina will play (7)Polina Leykina of Russia, ITF junior world number 91

This is such a great tournament for Despina. Just a week ago she was outside the top 500 in juniors, and now she's in the top 400 and will go much higher after this week's performance
I am not too familiar with the junior rankings, so I can't really say how high she will be

In doubles, Despina and Zheng won R1 6/0 6/1
In R2, they lost to Babos and Curovic, 7/6 6/4
Anyhow, Babos is a top 10 junior player (singles and doubles points are combined into one ranking), and Curovic is in the top 100. I am so eager to see where Despina's ranking will be

I am very impressed by Despina. A five match winning streak in a G1 is

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

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

Well, Despina lost to Lykina
The score was 6-1 2-6 6-2

Still, that was another very impressive run from her. I hope we will see many more like this in the future

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

Wow!
After Eleni's junior success, only 3 Greek players have had higher ranks than 219(Despina's current rank)
Asimina Kaplani(1984 born)-99
Nikoleta Kipritidou(1985 born)-123
Anna Gerasimou(1987 born)-141

With Despina's recent success, she passed many Greeks
Despina was scheduled to play a Turkish ITF Women's tournament, but she isn't there

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

Viva Δέσποινα !!!



Συνεχίζει η Δέσποινα Παπαμιχαήλ (No 231 ITF Juniors Combined Ranking) τις καλές της εμφανίσεις στην Ισπανία. Μετά τη νίκη της 6-1, 6-3 στον 1ο γύρο απέναντι στην Βουλγάρα Viktoryia Mun, νίκησε 7-5, 6-0 στον 2ο γύρο την Ιαπωνέζα Daniel Kana (No 1476 ITF Juniors Combined Ranking). Επόμενος αντίπαλος της Δέσποινας είναι η Πορτογαλέζα Patricia Martins, αν καταφέρει και την νικήσει θα βρεθεί στα ημιτελικά του τουρνουά.

Η αθλήτρια του Ο.Α.Ο Φίλαθλος αγωνίζεται και στα διπλά του ίδιου τουρνουά όπου με συμπαίκτρια την Ιταλίδα Alessia Camplone έχουν φτάσει στα ημιτελικά. Στον 1ο γύρο νίκησαν 6-1 4-6 [10-8] στον 1ο γύρο τις Ισπανίδες Sandra Gonzalez-Salas και Maria-Teresa Toro-flor και στο 2ο γύρο 6-2 3-6 [10-3] τις Carla FORTE (BRA) και την Aida MARTINEZ SANJUAN (ESP).

Το VIII Campeonatos Internacionales Junior de Tenis de la Comunidad Valenciana 2009 διεξάγεται στα γήπεδα της ακαδημίας του Juan Carlos Ferrero (γνωστός στα γήπεδα του τένις και ως κουνούπι), στην πόλη Alicante της Ισπανίας, Grade 2, σε clay επιφάνειες και ανήκει στο επίσημο ημερολόγιο της ITF Juniors.

I put "voulgara" in bold, because Mun is not Bulgarian. She is Belorussian

Basically, it says that Despina beat Mun 6-1 6-3 And then she beat Kana 7-5 6-0
And she won R1 and QF doubles

She will play Portugal's Patricia Martins in the singles quarterfinals

Despina

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