Re: Elizaveta Kulichkova

GSC Elizaveta, 62 61

First time seeing her. Physically she's like Myskina's taller cousin-- a bit uncanny.

I don't know what chingching was saying that she had no power Huge serve and lots of power, especially off the FH wing! Also a great mover and great court sense! Relentlessly positive as well, unlike her opponent. Of course, she wasn't really challenged here. She did make a tons of errors, and still won comfortably!

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Re: Elizaveta Kulichkova

I only saw the last 5 games and from what I can tell her serve is her biggest weapon (except second serve...that needs work). Her forehand is strong and her backhand is on point. She was steamrolling through the match and was finding the lines just barely missing on two or three points from where I picked up in watching the match. Her biggest weakness to me has to be the movement. When she's dictating play she hardly seemed to lose the point, but when she's on the run or misses her first serve she generally lost the point.

I like her game and I hope she continues her amazing undefeated run here in 2014!!!!!! Hopefully the next big Russian star

Also, was that Daria Gavrilova in her players box?

Re: Elizaveta Kulichkova

Awesome job for Eliza! She was just relentless. Great hitting and so many winners off both sides

I was very impressed, she's still early in her development but I think for sure she can make it onto the WTA tour in a couple of years if she keeps progressing.

Great start to the year for her. Already won $25K Hong Kong and Australian Open girls singles and doubles.

I guess she's leaving juniors now? Anyone know where she plays next?

This was my first time really seeing her play she an really decent player & yes I think she can do well on the WTA Tour incoming years, I don't think she will leave Junior Fully I think she might play the rest of the Junior slam this year & yes I hope her progresses into WTA would be better than Daria Gavrilova & Irina Khromacheva it sad too see how they have been struggling top crack top 100

Well if she does preform better than Daria it will mean she makes it past the 150 rankings mark! which would be amazing

I think her goal should be to crack Top 150 in WTA this year. I think it's possible as long as she doesn't get injured.

Re: Elizaveta Kulichkova

She's playing $50K Burnie next week!

Currently in qualifying but might sneak into the maindraw. Field is quite week so in this form she might do some damage.
