I think just because she is a young player who had just won two 10K tournaments at the time. I don't think she has any connections to Belgium but I could be wrong.

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

10K Netherlands:
R1 l. to (3) Anastasiya Vasylyeva UKR (#431) 3-6 1-6
Well Vasylyeva ended up reaching the SF here and then went on to win a 25K a few weeks later so it really isn't a bad loss. This was a strong 10K

G2 Netherlands:
She easily won three straight set matches to qualify, but she lost in R1 to eventual champion (5) Ivana Jorovic SRB 3-6 0-6. Jorovic is a rising star so it's not a bad loss. Unfortunately, Valentini lost R1 doubles in a STB. She just has such bad luck in juniors

25K Germany:
R1 l. to (WC) Natalie Proese GER (NR) 7-5 1-6 6-7(5)
Missed chance for 8 easy points, but I'll give her the benefit of the doubt since Proese ended up reaching the QF. Valentini lost badly in doubles though, so this tournament was kind of a waste

10K Germany:
R1 d. Rosalie Willig GER (#1191) 6-3 6-4
R2 l. to (3) Petra Krejsova CZE (#523) 2-6 4-6
And a walkover in doubles

10K Serbia:
R1 d. (WC) Dajana Dukic SRB (#1183) 6-4 6-2
R2 d. (WC) Milica Sljukic MNE (NR) 6-1 6-2
QF d. (6) Milana Spremo SRB (#671) 7-5 1-6 6-1
SF d. Vladica Babic MNE (#1040) 6-3 6-1
F d. (7) Eva Waccano NED (#793) 6-1 6-4
3rd ITF singles title of the year, and she's just 16
Lost doubles QF 10-8 in STB, but who cares?

10K Serbia:
R1 d. (WC) Nikolina Jovic SRB (NR) 7-6 6-7 6-3
R2 l. to Dunja Stamenkovic SRB (#774) 2-6 3-6 Bad loss
Lost doubles QF in STB again

10K Serbia:
R1 d. Cristina Adamescu ROU (#902) 6-3 7-6
R2 d. (Q) Marija Mastilovic SRB (NR) 6-3 6-4
QF l. to (1) Xenia Knoll SUI (#400) 1-6 1-6
Knoll was the top seed and eventual champion so I can't complain about the loss, but it probably could've been a little closer
Also lost doubles R1

25K Bulgaria:
QR1 d. Victoria Ocheva BUL (NR) 6-0 6-2
FQR l. to (15) Gabriela Talaba ROU (#866) 5-7 4-6
Talaba ended up playing a close match against Dentoni, but I think Valentini should've won it. But I'm happy in a way that she lost so she gets no ranking points and it won't affect her age eligibility restrictions since it doesn't count as a tournament. Otherwise, she would've qualified and probably lost in the first round and only gained one point. And she's already played so many tournaments this year and she's running out until her birthday in February.

10K Greece, HERAKLION:
R1 d. (Q) Dominique Covington GBR (NR) 6-2 6-1
R2 d. Sabina Shaydullina RUS (NR) 6-3 6-1
QF l. to (5) Laura Schaeder GER (#581) 2-6 4-6
Schafer ended up making the final, but still
And lost doubles QF 10-8 in STB

10K Greece, HERAKLION:
R1 l. to (WC) Lauren McMinn GBR (#1202) 3-6 4-6
The only explanation I could find for this loss was that she was tanking so she could have room in her age-restricted schedule to play her home 10K Zakynthos but then that event got canceled anyways
Valentini was the wooden spoon of this tournament even though the was the second seed in the draw

Also, she got to a new career-high of #520, so she can play in the qualifying draws of junior grand slams if she gets to the top 500 before the entry cut-offs
Her ranking did slip a bit since then to #552 but it's still great for her age. She was for most of thr year #3/4 for her birth year but now a few more girls have passed her. I think last time I checked she was #6 which is still amazing!

Maybe she should play some weak junior events and build a good ranking so she can play junior slams?

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

G1 Eddie Herr, USA:
QR1 d. (WC) Laura Kelly AUS 6-1 6-1
QR2 d. (9) Ingrid Gamarra Martins BRA 6-1 6-1
QR3 l. to (8) Katherine Sebov CAN 7-6 2-6 3-6
Sebov is a very promising young player, but still Valentini should've won IMO

GA Orange Bowl, USA:
QR1 d. (WC) Rachel Smilansky USA 6-3 6-1
QR2 d. (8) Yolimar Ogando PUR 6-4 6-2
QR3 d. Ayan Broomfield CAN 6-2 4-6 6-4
R1 l. to Emily Arbuthnott GBR 6-3 5-7 3-6
I've never even heard of her, and I wonder if Valentini had MPs in that second set

Valentini also played doubles (with Sebov) and reached the second round

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

25K Vero Beach, FL, USA:
Her section of Q draw:

(1)Allie Will (USA) v Natalie Pluskota (USA)
Ellie Halbauer (USA) v (wc)Paulina Bigos (POL)
Valentini Grammatikopoulou (GRE) v Kristina Mathis (USA)
Jan Abaza (USA) v (wc)Sara Swift (USA)

Tbh I don't see her making it to the main draw but I hope she proves me wrong. I never heard of Mathis and looked her up and saw that she never had a WTA ranking but she has had a few decent wins and since Valentini lost to girls like McMinn, Proese, and Talaba recently, you never know
Abaza and Will will be tough for sure (no pun intended)

3-6 6-2 3-6
That's probably the worst of her recent string of losses
And she is still entered for two more 25K qualies tournaments in Florida. What's the point if she isn't going to win? Even if she was in better form, these tournaments have strong lists. She should just take some time off to train and get herself together again and then come back for Fed Cup next month
