2R qualy for 25k in Coimbra, Portugal:

BARBAT, Karen (DEN) - SMITH, Anna (GBR) (2) 6-2 6-2

Another good win for Karen. Now she will face Diana Brunel (FRA) (15) for a place in MD.

On the latest WTA ranking Karen is back as #866 which is her best ranking so far.

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

So are any of these juniors good enough that they could qualify for the Olympics in 2012 so that Caro could have someone to play doubles with there if she wanted to?

Yeah I think so, Karen would certainly be a candidate. At the moment she (and her Dad) are having some issues with the Federation but that will hopefully be over in four years...

I'm not so sure about Karen how well Karen is going to do. She's 16 and still qualifying for junior Grand Slam's. Caro had won junior Wimbledon by that age. So she isn't any new Caro in making, but that certainly doesn't mean that she isn't going to be a decent player! I don't she'll go far, but top 100 seems reachable. I hope to be pleasently surprised!

She'll definitely be a candidate for the 2012 Olympic Games, though!

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

By the way, two juniors we should definitely look out for are Cecilie Lundgaard Melsted (no. 2 in the U14 rankings, the only girl from 1995 in the top 10) and Simone Michael Alipieva (no. 2 in the U12 rankings, the only 1998 girl in the top 20 - most of the best U12 girls are from 1996!). I met Simone at a tournament once, and she's nice.

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

This weekend Karen is trying to qualify for an ITF 25k in Lecce, Italy. First opponent is Andreea-Roxana VAIDEANU (ITA).

It is not relavant to compare Karen and Caroline. Caroline is in a leage of her own and no other Danish player will reach the same level for many years to come.

Karen's QF in Aus Open and 2R in French Open are still the best Danish junior results (Caroline excluded) since Eva Dyrberg won the European Junior Championships in 1998 (beating Schiavone, Dementieva and Srebotnik by the way )

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Lecce ITF 25k main draw 1R:
BARBAT, Karen (DEN) - Simona-Iulia MATEI (ROU) 57 62 63.

A very good win for Karen. Matei was WTA-142 two years ago and now back after injury.

Next match will be against Mervana JUGIC-SALKIC (BIH) (2), WTA-195
