I've not been good at updating this thread in 2012. I've been too busy posting about all the other Danish juniors in the junior thread, so I've just posted Cecilie's results in that thread too instead of posting here.
Anyway, the thread deserves a little update! Cecilie has played 4 ITF junior tournaments since she came back from America in January 2012. She has reached 3 semifinals and one quarterfinal. Pretty good, and very consistent, but perhaps we still lack a really special performance from her (reaching a final, and perhaps winning a title).
Cecilie got her Fed Cup debut in April, playing 2. single against Latvia's Liga Dekmeijere. Cecilie lost 2-6 3-6. She also played a doubles match with Malou Ejdesgaard against Latvia (lost 1-6 1-6).
She was a semifinalist at the Danish Indoor Championship, March 2012. Unfortunately she lost a close match against Mai Grage 3-6 6-7(8). Melsted won the doubles title with Mai Grage.
Melsted won the Danish Indoor U18 Championship, April 2012, defeating Malene Stripp 6-2 7-5 in the final. Cecilie was runner up in the doubles final.
