But I hope she gets some matches in before Fed Cup in February

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari

10K Spain:
R1 d. (Q) Yvonne Cavalle-Reimers ESP (#824, former 422) 6-3 2-6 7-5
R2 d. (3/Q) Yana Buchina RUS (#353) 6-2 0-6 6-3
Highest ranked player she's ever beaten
QF l. to Elise Mertens BEL (#529) 2-6 3-6
Same girl she lost to last week, similar score . Mertens was in the top 10 of juniors last season so it's not a bad loss
Still a good tournament for her
And she's up to a new career-high of #540

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari

After being 0-9 after two years, Maria finally won her first Fed Cup rubber against Cyprus in Greece's opener today!

She beat Maria Siopacha (junior #376) 6-2 7-5

Not the most convincing of wins, but hopefully this will let her play better in future Fed Cup matches now that there is less pressure on her

Let's see what she will do against Moldova on Friday, will be tougher than Cyprus

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari

Maria won her singles against Helbet 6-1 6-2 and lost doubles with Stefanou against Helbet/Porubin 2-6 3-6. They probably didn't care since Greece won anyways and will face Ireland in the promotional playoffs tomorrow

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari

Maria's Fed Cup record is now 2-12 after her failures today
I'm disappointed in her. Obviously there was a lot of pressure for her since Eleni and Despina skipped and because she wants to live up to her mother's career but still this is Group III we're talking about

Lost singles to Bowtell (#636) 6-4 3-6 2-6
I'm not that upset about this loss because Bowtell is really good indoors (beat Diatchenko and Bukta a few weeks ago and played a close match against Golubic) and she has more Fed Cup experience and a good and is used to carrying her team.

But then Maria and Valentini lost to Bowtell/Dillon 4-6 3-6, totally unacceptable to lose to such a weak team . I've said it before and I'll say it again, Maria needs to play more doubles since they like to use her in Fed Cup. She has at least started to play some doubles from last year but it's not nearly enough.

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

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari

Maria was seeded 6th at a 10K in Spain. Unfortunately, she lost in the first round 3-6 1-6 to Ekaterina Lopes (Ivanova) RUS (#933, former #136 coming back from injury, playing her first tournament in 8 months)
Really just bad luck with the draw this week
Tough to face someone who not too long ago was in the main draw of Grand Slams

Maria was also seeded 3rd in doubles but lost 5-7 1-6

Just a bad day for her today. Hopefully she gets a better draw in the next Spanish 10K next week

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