Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

6-3 5-7 7-6(3) in the semis
Lost the final to Soylu TUR (#538) 3-6 6-7(0)
She was 4/14 on break points in this match
And lost to Sezer/Soylu in a super tiebreak in the doubles final

It's too bad that she reached two finals this week and lost both, but at least she made finals!
Soylu should've been nice and given her at least one title

Then she played another Egyptian 10K
R1 l. to Fatma al Nabhani OMA (#447) 1-6 4-6
At first I thought it was a bad loss, but then I saw that al Nabhani recently beat Savinykh and played close matches against Friedsam and Putintseva

In doubles, Despina won two easy matches to reach the semis before losing to eventual champions (1) Ivakhnenko/Kapshay 10-7 in STB

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
