Talking Elise Mertens

I think Elise really deserves her own thread!

She's 17 (born Nov 17, 1995) and one of the best juniors! Currently she's at #11, but she got a CHR of 10 earlier this year.

She's played 2 junior tournaments at the beginning of the year in Australia, made QF in AO - she was Seed 8 and lost only to Kulichkova.

This week, she's trying 10K Netanya in Istrael, playing the qualies successfully for the moment.
She double-bagelled Shir Azran in Q1, beat (3)Olga Parres Azcoitia 0 & 1 in Q2, and plays Shiran Arol Wiegand in final Q round. She shouldn't have much troubel against her.

Best luck Elise!

Re: Elise Mertens

She double-bagelled Arol Wiegand in final Q round

Then destroyed (4)Keren Shlomo 1 & 0 in R1

Then beat Oleksandra Korashvili 5-7 6-1 6-0 in R2

QF vs. (5)Amandine Hesse now - another good test!

Re: Elise Mertens

Elise lost against Amandine yesterday. 7-5 6-3 (or 6-3 7-5).

But good tournament anyway

C'mon Belgians

Re: Elise Mertens

She spent the last 2 weeks in Sharm-El-Sheikh.

2 weeks ago, she reached R2 (beat Martina Pradova 1 & 0 in R1, lost 2 & 0 to (7)Doroteja Eric in R2 - Eric eventually won the tournament).

Last week, much better: she made SF! (Beat (Q)Gaelle Rey 7-5 7-5; Agata Baranska 2 & 3 in R2; (1)Yuliya Kalabina 2 & 0 in QF - and lost again to the eventual winner Arabela Fernandez Rabener in SF 1-6 7-6(12) 3-6 ).

Re: Elise Mertens

What is next for elise?

Maybe back to juniors to play French Open and Wimbledon? I don't think there is any benefit to playing junior tournaments except junior slams ... Focus on $10ks now but junior slams are a good experience especially as she'll be seeded well.

Then maybe $10ks in Belgium after that??

Good Luck: Belgian & Czech Girls
