Last weekend, unseeded Daria Sharapova won 64, 36, 61 in the round 16 but lost in the quarterfinal match 6-2, 6-4 to top seeded Alexandra J. Kiick in the Girls' 12 Woodmont Super Series at the Woodmont Country Club in Tamarac, FL.
I think winning matches and titles will help Dasha become a better and more confident tennis player.
Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
Ten years old Daria Sharapova won the tournament today. This year, she now wins 6 out of 9 tournaments (5 G12 titles and 1 G14 title).
Last year starting January 2005 was her rookie year after she came to Amercia in the late Fall of 1994 (after she lost in the final of the tournament in Sochi, Russia in the summer of 1994). She won 4 out of 23 tournaments (1 G10 title and 3 G12 titles).
Congrats Daria for your 6th title of the year today. And you made a huge significant improvement in your game, Daria! Keep working hard!
Maybe she can be ready to compete in more G14 tournaments this year if she has the fire as Maria!
