Re: Orange Bowl International Tennis Championship, USA, GA
Well, it's not like she is a totally unknown before this, the first time i heard about her was when she was 10 (well 9, because she was born in december) when she lost against Virginia Peña in the final of Smrikva Bowl. And she always was one of the best players born in 1997, but i think it was last year when she stepped up, and start to rise her level. In some terms is a similar case to Vekic, always a good player among the tops of her cathegory, but suddenly rise up over the rest. We only can hope her progression continues. Wta needs some young stars
Whatever happened to Peña? I remember her being featured on that special about the Nike Junior Masters and she seemed like a fun kid with a good game. Mestach, Uberalova, and Quinzi were all featured on that program as well and have done pretty big things (granted all were playing in the 14s division I think) but I have yet to hear anything about Virginia.
