Since I created a thread for Vanesa
Ivana (born March 4, 2001) is another promising 2001 born Czech girl.
Last year, she reached the SFs of the U14 European Championships: she was the 5th seed, had a bye in R1, beat Zara Ryan 3 & 1 in R2, Victoria Carlsten 7-5 6-0 in R3, Holly Fischer 4 & 2 in R4, Romana Cisovska 6-1 4-6 6-4 in QF
, lost 4-6 6-2 2-6 to top seed Taisya Pachkaleva in SF.
She won 2 singles titles: G14 Stork International TE U14 Trophy in Switzerland (beating Alexandra Vecic 3 & 1 in the final), G16 ZLTC Cup in Brno (beating Vanesa Nikolovova 2 & 1 in the final
); she made 1 more final, at G16 Zabrze Cup in Poland (lost 3 & 2 to Marcelina Podlinska in the final).
She had a strong year last year, this year has been very dismal so far - she's only been playing G18s but is yet to reach her first QFs... Hopefully she can turn it around, pojd!
