Cool Sofya Lansere 🎀

Sorry, I can't resist my wanting to create a thread for her, so here it is! A sweet, lovely and pretty talented tall Russian girl with an actual French surname (Lanceray, transcribed into Лансерé in Cyrillic - to fit as much as possible to the original pronunciation of the name -, then just retranscribed letter by letter in Latin alphabet as Lansere, which is sort of mistake), I could not possibly not love her Actually, she's one of my very favourite Russian juniors (outside of the Holy Potapovushkina Trinity, + Vladka and Blinky), with Trescheva, Kulikova, Mini Mak, Krupchenko and Pepelyaeva basically.

Sonya is 15, she was born on Sept 29, 2000 in Moscow and she still lives in Moscow; her listed coaches are Vera Miklashevskaya and Andrey Averin, but that info may be outdated.
More importantly (), she's very close to Potapova, Pachkaleva, Mini Mak, Rakhimova, and a few other cool girls from the Moscow Tennis Mafia (Pervushina, Pospelova...).

Speaking about her game, she's very tall, definitely one of the tallest Russian juniors and that's a nice asset; from the little footage I managed to catch I thought she had a nice and pretty smooth, pleasing to the eye game, but a bit lightweight (it was over a year ago when I last watched her play though, she's probably significantly improved in that department already) and she's clearly not the overoptimistic hyperactive type on court attitude-wise (and that is personally not a turn-off at all ).

As for her actual results: she's currently ranked #216, very close to her CHR of 197 reached at the end of last December.

Last year, she won 1 singles title: G4 TSZ Cup in Togliatti, where she beat Taisya Pachkaleva 4 & 2 in the final.
Apart from that, she's made quite a few deep runs to SFs - at G5 Tbilisi Cup, at G3 Fergana Cup, at G3 Samara Cup, and at G3 Marshall Open in Honour of Danny Gelley. The interesting thing I've noticed is that when a girl beats her once, she generally beats her the next time, or if not, the time after. That's always nice not to be a pigeon already in your junior days. We'll see if this tendency holds on in the next future and it's daily challengeing...

This year, she's played 2 tournaments only so far:

- G1 RPM Junior Open in Prague in Jan: she beat Iulia Maria Ivascu 7-5 6-4 in R1, lost to 12th seed and eventual SFist Irina Cantos Siemers (#138) in R2, 4 & 3

- G1 Yeltsin Cup in Kazan this week: seeded 16, she had a bye in R1, beat Varvara Kuksina 3-6 6-4 6-4 in R2, lost to top seed Olesya Pervushina (#13) in R3, 3 & 1


Good luck Sonya in 2016! Hopefully she'll keep slowly but steadily improving and I'd really love her to get well enough ranked to get to play her first Slam(s) this year!

PS: Her surname is quite familiar in the Russian artistic sphere, there are a few Lansere artists (the most famous was part of the Mir Isskustvo movement), and obviously they're from the same family, but I wonder how cloesly she's related to them?

Re: Sofya Lansere 🎀

Sonya played G2 Tashkent ITF Juniors this week. She beat (WC)Dariya Detkovskaya 3 & 3 in R1, but lost 6-4 3-6 3-6 to (2)Amina Anshba (#87, WTA 688) in R2

I like Amina but I'm sad she lost this match, she's lost quite a few close matches against good players and it's probably affecting her self-confidence (she's not really the most self-confident girl ) and I hope she doesn't feel to disheartened. Hopefully she'll start winning some of these matches this year, and it could really propel her progression
