Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari

10K Heraklion I:
R1 l. to Josephine Boualem ESP (#876) 6-7 3-6

Fed Cup:
Kovinic MNE d. Sakkari 6-2 6-3
Stanciute LTU d. Sakkari 5-7 6-2 6-1
Simmonds RSA d. Sakkari 6-3 6-0
Suomalainen FIN d. Sakkari 6-0 6-2
It's very disappointing that after two years she still hasn't won a match in Fed Cup, but then again all of the girls she played against this year were ranked much higher than her so I should not have expected much from her anyways

10K Heraklion IV:
R1 d. Ainhoa Atucha Gomez ESP (#1032) 3-6 7-6 6-3
R2 d. Natalia Vajdova SVK (#1001) 6-4 1-6 6-2
QF l. to Julia Stamatova BUL (#611) 4-6 4-6

10K Heraklion V:
R1 d. Agnes Szatmari ROU (NR) 7-5 6-0
R2 l. to Valentini Grammatikopoulou GRE (#901) 6-4 4-6 4-6
Grammatikopoulou ended up taking the title so it really wasn't a bad loss

25K Italy:
R1 l. to (Q) Martina di Giuseppe ITA (#815) 2-6 1-6
Really couldn't have asked for a better draw at a 25K. Such a waste of a good draw and an easy 8 ranking points for winning the first round

25K USA:
QR2 d. Sophia Bursulaya USA (NR) 6-2 6-1
QR3 d. Anastasiya Joyner USA (NR) 6-0 6-1
R1 l. to (Q) Fatma al Nabhani OMA (#480) 2-6 2-6
Again, she wasn't going to get a better draw at this level and couldn't come close

25K USA:
QR2 d. Brooke Rischbieth AUS (#1145) 1-6 6-1 6-1
QR3 d. (15) Jacqueline Crawford USA (#1111) 6-4 6-3
R1 l. to (5) Chieh-Yu Hsu TPE (#272) 4-6 1-6

Currently ranked #626 in singles, but she's losing a lot of points the next few weeks and hasn't signed up for any tournaments. She was probably picked to play the Mediterranean Games since she didn't enter any events. I hope she goes on a tear at the Greek fall ITF events, since there will be over 10 of them . And in a few weeks she won't have to worry about age restrictions since she'll turn 18 and can be free to enter as many tournaments as she wants

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.
