Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

^Thanks. Too bad they are very brief. The only other videos we have of her are from U14s years ago

10K Antalya:
QR1 d. Udzina RUS (NR) 6-2 6-1
QR2 d. (10) Kitagawa JPN (#1105, 19 yo) 6-3 4-2 ret.
QR3 d. (7) Bara ROU (#922, 17 yo) 6-1 6-3
R1 l. to (Q) Frech POL (NR, 14 yo) 5-7 1-6

Really an amazing win over Bara, but disappointing that she couldn't get past Frech in R1. She breezed through qualies but then she folded when there were ranking points on the line

10K Antalya:
QR2 d. Chernetsova BLR (NR) 4-6 6-1 6-4
QR3 d. Bolsova MDA (NR, junior #109, 15 yo) 6-3 6-1
R1 d. Moura POR (#873, 19 yo) 6-4 6-2
R2 l. to (3) Shinikova BUL (#375, 21 yo, eventual finalist) 6-7 3-6
And reached doubles QF with Potocnik (SLO)! Great week! Secured a WTA ranking in singles AND doubles and will now have a lot less pressure on her. Also now it will be much easier for her to enter pro tournaments!

Very encouraging that she is posting great results, and a very respectable scoreline against Shinikova

She will start her 2013 season playing some junior tournaments, can't wait!
First one is a G1 in the Czech Republic during the first week of the AO
Strangely, she didn't enter the AO even though she would've been in qualies

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
