Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread
I'm not sure if it's any consolation for Simone, but her 1st round opponent Nicole Frenkel seems to be a very good player - and in very good form! Now she's in the final at the U12 Orange Bowl with some impressive results:
1R: Nicole Frenkel (USA) def. Simone Alipieva (DEN) 6-2; 2-6; 6-1
2R: Nicole Frenkel (USA) def. (1)Kimberly Birrell (AUS) 6-0; 6-1
3R: Nicole Frenkel (USA) def. Samantha J. Martinelli (USA) 6-0; 6-0
4R: Nicole Frenkel (USA) def. Anna Zhdanova (UKR) 6-2; 7-6(3)
QF: Nicole Frenkel (USA) def. (1)Jasmin Plews (GBR) 7-5; 6-1
SF: Nicole Frenkel (USA) def. (1)Katarina Jokic (BIH) 6-1; 6-2
F: Nicole Frenkel (USA) vs. (1)Yulia Bryzgalova (RUS)
Simone is the only player to have won a set against Nicole Frenkel so far...
(If anyone wonders how Frenkel can have played against four no. 1 seeds: The U12 draw had 16 seeded playeres, but without any distinction between no.1, no. 2, no. 3, etc. Therefore a "1" just indicates one of the 16 seeded players).
