Valeria Gorlatš

After her recent Pro Circuit début and decent Junior results, I decided to make a thread for Valeria

She is currently near her Juniors Career High of 502 at 510 and she doesn't turn 16 till March 31 next year

I was able to see her play in Helsinki 10K 1st Round where she played against Ella Leivo and showed a lot of potential with an agressive game, good movement and good fight The only things she needs to improve in my opinion are her consistency, serve, shot choice and variation Anyway, she has been a lot more succesful at the ITF Junior events than many of her Estonian counterparts and she is still young so if she can make Top 200 in Juniors by the end of next year I think we will have something to cheer about She's one of those players where you feel if she had more confidence and self-belief along with better coaching and more focus on tennis she could really make inroads

Anyway, it seems her next tournament is going to be the Grade 5 Alatan Tour Cup in Minsk where although she is currently 11th on the EL, she will go up to 7 with priorities it is quite strong for a G5 but if she can make a QF in Singles she can make a SFs in Singles she should break Top 500 and a good Doubles showing would also be nice I hope next year she starts to play some G3 and G2 events as she has never played one before and I am curious how she would go

Anyway, good luck to her and I hope that she can bring Estonia some tennis success
