Red face Veronika Pepelyaeva

Ok, so I've loved & had 15 yo Nika (born Aug 3, 2001) from Volgograd in my sig for a while now (she's ubercute and kinda is Queendrance's BFF, as they have both trained at the Ostrovskky Academy in Khimki for a few years now) but I resisted the temptation to create a thread for her because her results weren't exactly stellar... until now! Nika has won her very first G18 singles title this week, so I'm guess I know have a valid excuse for creating her thread eventually!

Indeed, Nika's won G4 Qatar ITF Junior Open: she beat Carol Plakk 7-5 7-6(8) in R1 ( @chingching ), top seed Vaidehi Chaudhari (17 yo, #200) 7-5 4-6 6-3 in R2, Karolina Jaskiewicz 1 & 4 in QF, 3rd seed Maria Manilova (16 yo, #269) 4-6 6-2 6-2 in SF, and 4th seed Danai Petroula (16 yo, #213) 7-5 6-0 in the final yesterday!

This is a huge week for her, until fairly recently I have to admit her results were pretty mediocre and it looked like she didn't really have much of a tennis future even at junior level. Petroula won the previous G4 in Qatar last week, without dropping a set... and Nika lost in R1 to... her. 4-6 5-7, and Petroula was seeded 3 that week. So beating her in her biggest final ever with a 2nd set bagel is YUGE!

Nika's second best result this year was a QF appearance at G3 Almetievsk Cup in February (she routined 18 yo Rosanna Maffei 4 & 1 in R1 - which was a great win - and beat 16 yo & Top 200 4th seed Ekaterina Shalimova 7-6(4) 7-5 in R2 - another great scalp! -, before getting routined by 16 yo qualifier Elena Malygina in QF, 3 & 4); the 4 other tournies she played all ended with R1 exits.

Her best results last year were: runner-up of a Cat. 2 G16 in Lithuania in Feb (she lost 6-4 1-6 3-6 to Deniza Marcinkevica in the final), SFist of a G4 in Swden in March (lost 5-7 6-7(6) to Ksenia Domnina in SF), SFist of a G5 in georgia in July (lost 1 & 3 to Lana Kentchiashvili in SF), SFist of a G4 in Kyrgyzstan in Aug (lost 1 & 3 to Sevil Yuldasheva in SF), winner of a Cat. 3 G16 in Israel in Nov (she beat Eleni Louka 3 & 2 in the final), and SFist of a G5 in Belarus in Dec (lost 4 & 2 to Rebeka Mertena in SF).

Her current ranking is 388, not far from her CHR of 361. Hopefully this week's run bring her into the Top 300 next week!

Keep improving Nichka!

Re: Veronika Pepelyaeva

Update: Nika has played 2 tournaments since her final in Latvia:

- 2 weeks ago, G1 Junior Grand Prix in Austria: she lost 2 & 2 to Kristina Novak (1 year older than her, floating around #200) in R1

- this week, G3 NBU Cup in Tashkent: she was the 6th seed, beat qualifier Narine Sargsyan 2 & 2 in R1, Milana Maslenkova 3 & 3 in R2, and Shivani Swarup Ingle 3 & 3 in QF before falling 6-4 4-6 1-6 to 2nd seed Maria Krupenina (a few months older than her, Top 200) in SF

Proof that she's done a great job at improving her game, Krupenina used to be miles ahead of her in terms of results a couple years ago!

She's even doing as good as Mini Mak, who used to be the Russian #2 by far after Potapova in U12, now. They played doubles together this week btw, upset the 3rd seeds in QF but got thrashed by 2nd seeds Avanesyan/Krupenina in SF.

Re: Veronika Pepelyaeva

Nika played G2 Budaors Cup in Hungary this week.

She scored a good 3 & 2 win over 14 yo leftie Noa Krznaric in R1, but got thrashed by 17 yo qualifier Giulia Peoni (who had previously dragged top seed Hindova in R1 ) in R2, 1 & 2 (Edit: Peoni went on to win the whole thing, dropping only 1 set the whole week )

However she's won the title in dubs along with Taya Pachkaleva! They were the 4th seeds, beat unseeded Italians Peoni/Traversi (who thrashed 3rd seeds Koval/Petrenko in R1) 3 & 0 in the final
