Smile Karen Paterson's "Patersonian" Thread

I think it's about time Karen got her very own thread separate from the Scottish players one, as a reward for her very good start to the year. She recently reached the final of $10K Grenoble and then beat Top 200 player Stephanie Gehrlein in Sunderland So support her here and become a Patersonian

She next plays in Redbridge, where she has received a maindraw wildcard

Go Karen!

Karen got another scalp in Redbridge She beat her fellow Brit Amanda Janes 63 46 62 in the first round, and guarantees her entrance into the top 400 for the first time!

She now plays tough Russian starlet Ekaterina Makarova Good luck Karen!

Karen lost to Makarova 16 61 46 but a lot closer than it would have been last year

But she's in the top 400 now and has barely anything to defend this year, so the only way is up!
