Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

10K Egypt:
R1 d. Fatma al Nabhani OMA (#459) 3-6 6-4 6-4
Revenge from last week
R2 l. to (SE) Darya Kasatkina RUS (#NR, junior #7) 2-6 3-6
Not a surprise since Darya is one of the up-and-coming stars
She's actually ended up winning the tournament without dropping a set
Despina hit 8 aces in that match!

#2 seed in doubles with Leykina (RUS)
R1 d. Palha IND/Zhang CHN 7-5 6-4
QF d. Pinto ITA/Prosperi ITA 6-3 6-2
SF d. (4) Kubicikova CZE/Mendesova CZE w/o
F l. to(1) Ivakhnenko UKR/Kapshay UKR 6-7 2-6

Another lost final
She did improve her singles ranking to 358 though

Next up: Fed Cup and then 15K Tallinn

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.
