Anna Fitzpatrick Cheering Thread

Anna just won 2 weeks ago her first $10K tournament in Ilkley (UK) without dropping a set followed with a semifinal showing (beating Karen Paterson) the following week at $10K Wrexham.

Quite impressive for this young Brit who just turned 17 last April and who didn't win any match in Main Draw this year before this breakthrough (got 8 in a row!)

Anna selected to join elite tennis academy
Tennis

ONLY 17 and leaving Sheffield to join the jet set in Monte Carlo ... it sounds great for tennis starlet Anna Fitzpatrick.

But its the tennis courts not the yachts and the glamour that Anna will be concentrating on as she seeks to make the most of her talent and a great opportunity.
Anna has been selected to join the Monte Carlo Tennis Academy, one of two players out of an eventual 10 who will be hand-picked from promising young talent across the world.

It is an elite international academy with players based at the Monte Carlo Country Club for seven weeks of the year with the remainder of the time on tour on both junior and senior circuits. The Academy is targeting players aged 16 and above and concentrating on producing world class players.

Anna recently won $10,000 dollars when winning the women's singles event at a big tournament at Ilkley and has reached the final of the British National Junior Champion-ships in Bournemouth.

She started playing tennis at the age of five and her accolades include winning the U14 European Tennis Association singles in Portugal, the U15 British National Championships and the Under-18 British Grand Prix.

"She is a tough player loving nothing more than to hit aggressively both from the back of the court and at the net," said Director of Coaching David Sammel who believes she has the right game plan to make a big impact on the tour in years to come. Anna has a clear attacking game plan that is maturing well."

Semis again this week beating Karen again

Shes got a really nice game Anne, makes it look so simple. Great serve on the deuce side no extremly powerful but can hit a big one down the tee or a swinger out wide.

In long rallies she seems to come from nowhere to hit a screaming winner aswell.

Hopefully if her great results continue she can be closeto the top 500 by the end of the year.

GOOD LUCK IN 2014 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Thumbs up Another good week

Congratulations on another great week Anna!


3 Finals and a semi-final in 4 consecutive tournaments is pretty impressive tennis.


Keep it going Sheffield's Finest.

Re: Anna Fitzpatrick Cheering Thread

Anna is in the semis of the $10K in Sunderland after a poor start to the year. She beat Ana Veselinovic 67 64 62 today and faces the #2 seed Aurelie Vedy of France in the semis! It's tough but Anna can do it if she's on form! Go Anna!

Good job, Anna!

I saw Anna on the Tennis Channel during this tournament for young British players and I was very impressed by her game.

Does anyone have any more pictures of her?

Re: Anna Fitzpatrick Cheering Thread

From watching her live, what kind of potential do you think she has?

I've only seen her in that tournament being shown in the Tennis Channel and it was only small highlights.
