Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

25K Germany:
R1 l. to (1) Maryna Zanevska UKR (#156) 6-4 1-6 5-7
Zanevska ended up winning the title without dropping a set
Despina was so close, but at least she showed that she can play well
She also lost R1 doubles
And her ranking slipped to 341, but hopefully she can bounce back and rise again

Another 25K Germany:
R1 d. (5) Eva Birnerova CZE (#266, career high 59) 6-3 1-0 ret.
R2 vs. (WC) Laura Schaeder GER (#579)
I know it was a retirement, but that's a great win for Despina . Schaeder barely beat a fellow wild card, please Despina don't mess up this draw!! Also Pervak was the top seed (could've played Despina in QF) and she got upset in R1. Please Despina don't blow this opportunity! Unfortunately I've been following her for too long to know that she has a lot of random losses, so I won't get my hopes up
Also she lost R1 doubles 10-8 in the super tiebreak

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.
