Well she seems to be ever-so popular in GM and even in articles all over the place...so why shouldn't this budding Canuck star have her own thread?
Does anyone think that she could be a top 50/100 player? I cant say much b ecause I've never seen her play, but Daniela isn't losing to players ranked below #100, let alone #1000 so I'm guessing that Mel played one hell of a match. Was it a fluke? Or could she make a surge next year?
I don't know but from what I've heard she's very mentally tough. Apparently she's not a power player. She looks up to and is kinda like Hingis with her smarts and nice angle shots.
Good luck to her!
Very impressive results in Québec!
Hopefully, Melanie Gloria will play a lot more pro tournements next year. She is a good player, and could get very far in the slams. Lets hope she can get her ranking up a little more to be assured a qually spot in the slams next year.

Juniors can be a whole different ball game than pros - Some take pro matches a lot more seriously, plus juniors there's a lot more brat behaviour
"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!
