Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

10K Heraklion:
R1 d. Maria Sakkari GRE (#566) 4-6 6-4 6-1
R2 d. (3) Polina Leykina RUS (#408) 6-2 6-3
Good win over the previous week's title winner
QF d. (5) Borislava Botusharova BUL (#481) 6-4 6-3
SF l. to (1) Tereza Martincova CZE (#278) 6-4 0-6 1-6
Really a good performance here. She's saving some of her points from last year. Martincova ended up winning the title and she only lost one set all tournament, against Valentini. She (Martincova) really has no business playing in a 10K, but once again Valentini showed how she can compete at a high level
Her ranking will probably take a big dip but I'm confident if she keeps up this level she will be back to where she is now and even higher by the end of the year

She also reached another doubles final, losing 6-1 5-7 8-10

10K Heraklion:
R1 vs. (Q) Helene Scholsen BEL (#1048)

Doubles with Dzalamidze again this week, and they already beat Kairi GRE/Leykina RUS in straight sets and are into the QF

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.
