Gabriela Dabrowski

Pretty good performances from this 18yr old recently.
She beat Molik in the ITF in Vancouver last week.
Today, she beat Cohen-Aloro in the first round of qualifying in Montreal 63 62.
SHe's currently ranked #694.
Anyone know much about her?

Re: Gabriela Dabrowski

She is one of the best juniors. She won Orange Bowl 2009.

She's going to try transitioning. She's already gone up about 100 places since August!

Re: Gabriela Dabrowski

After a pretty rough start to the year, Gabriela got a wild card into Charleston qualies. She won one round and is at a new career high of #482. She now qualified for the 25k Osprey where she'll face Caroline Garcia in the first round. Good luck and Happy Belated 19th Birthday!

Re: Gabriela Dabrowski

She's doing well! She needs some big Challenger results in the next couple months!

Re: Gabriela Dabrowski

Yes, hopefully before she has to defend her points from the Canadian ITFs. Hopefully she got some confidence from the quali win, she was a pretty good junior and I didn't expect her to struggle this much.

Re: Gabriela Dabrowski

Dabrowski has potential, it's more mental than anything else in my opinion.

Seen her play many times through the years, and she's always been a great athlete. Moves very well, solid game and competent moving forward as well. Only thing that held her back was her emotions, getting tight in pressure situations of a match. I think the fact that she didn't get a ton of international experience may have hindered her some in terms of getting that match play in and really learning to play through some of that, but she's shown improvement with confidence. I hope she will give the pro circuit a try for at least through 2012 to see where she's at. The American challengers early in the year are always tough especially trying to come through some of the big qualifying draws where you have a mix of good juniors and veteran pros battling it out there.

"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!

But he loves you."

Um...well I was't paying too much attention, but hard and flat... I think? Actually she was coached by the guy who owns the Carleton courts, Tony Milo.

Re: Gabriela Dabrowski

Gabby reached a career high ranking this week #359 after reaching the final in Toronto. Hopefully, she takes this and builds on it, she doesn't defend any points at all until April next year. Congrats!

A nice article about her final by the Montreal Gazette http://www.montrealgazette.com/sport...374/story.html

Re: Gabriela Dabrowski

75k Phoenix

Q1: (3)Gabriela Dabrowski (CAN) d. Asia Muhammed (USA) 63 62
Q2: (3)Gabriela Dabrowski (CAN) d. Jacqueline Cako (USA) 63 62
QFR: (3)Gabriela Dabrowski (CAN) d. Romana Tedjakusuma (INA) 63 62

1R: (Q)Gabriela Dabrowski (CAN) d. (6)Alexa Glatch (USA) 46 62 62
2R: (Q)Gabriela Dabrowski (CAN) d. (Q)Kristie Ahn (USA) 61 62
QF: (Q)Gabriela Dabrowski (CAN) d. (4)Michelle Larcher De Brito (POR) 63 62

SF: (Q)Gabriela Dabrowski (CAN) vs. (8) Maria Sanchez (USA)

Nice job . I was a bit worried when her 50k final points came off, but then she goes and makes the semis at a 75k. Seems like a weirdly awesome last tournament each year is becoming a tradition. Should reach a new career high too. Nice to see her still plugging away. She's also ranked 138 in doubles currently. Good luck vs. Sanchez; if she wins she'll break the top 300.
