Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

10K Heraklion:
R1 l. to (5/Q) Amanda Carreras GBR (#395) 6-7(5) 6-7(4)
Main difference was that she was 6/18 on break points and her experienced opponent was 6/6 . No secret that she has to start playing better on the big points
Still, encouraging scoreline I guess. Too bad that she has 31 points to defend over this month so her ranking will probably drop a lot
Luckily she should be able to bring it back up though

She also played doubles and reached the final with Leykina (RUS) but lost 10-6 in a super tiebreak against the top seeds


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

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

10K Heraklion:
R1 d. Maria Sakkari GRE (#566) 4-6 6-4 6-1
R2 d. (3) Polina Leykina RUS (#408) 6-2 6-3
Good win over the previous week's title winner
QF d. (5) Borislava Botusharova BUL (#481) 6-4 6-3
SF l. to (1) Tereza Martincova CZE (#278) 6-4 0-6 1-6
Really a good performance here. She's saving some of her points from last year. Martincova ended up winning the title and she only lost one set all tournament, against Valentini. She (Martincova) really has no business playing in a 10K, but once again Valentini showed how she can compete at a high level
Her ranking will probably take a big dip but I'm confident if she keeps up this level she will be back to where she is now and even higher by the end of the year

She also reached another doubles final, losing 6-1 5-7 8-10

10K Heraklion:
R1 vs. (Q) Helene Scholsen BEL (#1048)

Doubles with Dzalamidze again this week, and they already beat Kairi GRE/Leykina RUS in straight sets and are into the QF

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

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

4-6 7-5 6-2
I expected her to win these first two rounds easier, but it's okay
QF vs. (2) Despina Papamichail GRE (#380)

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.

6-2 6-4 in doubles
SF vs. (1) Schuurs NED/Versteeg NED

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

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

7-5 6-2 in QF over Despina, 6-7(5) 0-6 in SF against Maria Sakkari GRE (#568)

However, she won her doubles semi 6-4 7-6(4) and then the final over (3) Papamichail GRE/Sakkari GRE 6-7(6) 6-3 10-5 for her first career doubles title, which is great since she lost the finals two weeks in a row. Third time is a charm!

This week's 10K Heraklion:
Valentini was a late entrant so she was the top seed in qualies
QR1 BYE
QR2 d. Risako Sugihara JPN (NR) 6-3 6-1
Seeded 6th in the main draw
R1 d. Natalie Proese GER (#900) 6-0 6-4
R2 vs. Natalia Siedliska POL (#677)

On paper it might have seemed like an easy R1, but Valentini drew her in the first round of a 25K last year which seemed like it would be an easy 8 ranking points for Valentini and she ended up losing7-6(5) in the third so Proese definitely gives Val some trouble. If she won that match last summer, she would've been easily in the top 500

No doubles this week, which I think is a good move since she's played a lot the last few weeks

6-4 6-0
QF l. to (1/WC) Despina Papamichail GRE (#391) 7-5 3-6 1-6
Lost 9 of the last 10 games, clearly she was tired from all the tennis she's played the last few weeks

She will fall in the rankings (to around 675 if my calculations are correct), but I think her results at these tournaments were very good. I have no doubt that she will rise up once again

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

10K Slovenia:
R1 l. to (Q) Manca Pislak SLO (NR, juniors #116) 0-6 1-6

25K Slovenia:
QR1 l. to Ana Oparenovic SLO (NR) 0-6 4-6

25K Germany:
QR1 BYE
QR2 d. Caroline Uebelhoer GER (#1219) 6-3 6-3
QR3 l. to (6) Tayisiya Morderger GER (#441) 3-6 3-6

I don't know why she is struggling so much again. It looked like she was getting back on track. The players she lost to have at least backed up their wins over Valentini a little bit and Morderger is a very promising young player, but I'm still not happy about the losses in Slovenia. She really should play more 10K's instead of 25K's. Hopefully she can start winning a lot again soon

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

She won 6-3 6-4 but then lost in QF to (1) Klaartje Liebens BEL (#432) 6-1 3-6 6-7(10)
I can't even imagine how many match points she must have wasted
Liebens ended up winning the title too, so that at least shows that her level is good but mentally she just isn't all there right now
She also lost the doubles SF, kind of expectedly I guess

25K Germany:
QR1 d. Michelle van Lier GER (NR) 6-2 6-2
QR2 d. (15) Natalia Orlova RUS (#492) 1-6 6-3 6-0
QR3 l. to (8) Yuuki Tanaka JPN (#446) 2-6 2-6

10K Belgium:
R1 d. (Q) Alice Rame FRA (#1062) 6-4 6-2
R2 vs. (Q) Sofie Oyen BEL (#990, former #403)

Currently ranked 641, so she is (slowly) working her way back up

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