Thumbs up Peruvian sweetie Dominique Schaefer 💎💝

For some reason I've always had a soft spot for Domi, and even though she's obviously not the most promising junior out there atm, she still is one of the best girls in Latin America and I like her so here's a cheering thread only for her

She's 16 yo (born Jan 7, 1999) and she played for the USA initially, only switched for Peru roughly a year ago iirc? She's BFF with Abby Desiatnikov and Monika Kilnarova, which is making her even more likeable to me

She had a strong finish to last year, making the final in both U16 Eddie Herr (lost to Sofia Sewing 2-6 6-7(5) in the final) and U16 Orange Bowl (lost to Bianca Andreescu 5-7 3-6 in the final), but she's had a really disappointing 2015, with literally no deep run (by deep run I mean QF and beyond) EXCEPT for a final at G2 Copa Milo in Chile in February (she lost to Alexandra Sanford 2-6 7-6(3) 4-6 in the final).
She's also played her first pro tournaments this year: the first one was 10K Evansville in the US in July, she came through the qualies and snatched the R1 win over 5th seed Peangtarn Plipuech (WTA 477, CHR 348), 6-3 2-6 7-6(3) but she got thrashed by Andie Daniell (who made the final in the end) in R2, 2 & 1; the second one was 10K Charleston in the US as well is September, but she fell in qualies.

Hopefully 2016 will be a good year for Domi, which will see her win her first G18 singles title and break into the Top 100 and then 50 (she's currently #157, with a CHR of 132).

Re: Peruvian sweetie Dominique Schaefer 💎💝

Here are Domi's most recent results, all in very strong tournaments:

- at G1 Jerry Simmons Pan American Closed ITF Championships in October: she was the 10th seed, beat Najah Dawson 2 & 3 in R1 and Ann Li 6-1 2-6 7-5 in R2, lost to 6th seed Kylie McKenzie (who won G1 Eddie Herr last week) in R3, 3-6 6-3 4-6

- at GA Abierto Juvenil Mexicano last month, she lost 6-4 0-6 5-7 to Sofia Sewing in R1 (these 2 always have contested matches!)

- at G1 Yucatan Cup the week after, she beat Daniela Alejandra La Fuente Strassburger 2 & 1 in R1, lost to top seed Sofia Kenin (junior #3, this year's junior USO finalist) 6-7(2) 6-7(4) in R2 (this loss depressed me a lot )

- at G1 Eddie Herr International Junior Tennis Championships last week, she lost to Kenin - seeded 2 this time - again, 1 & 4

- at GA Orange Bowl Int'l Tennis Championships this week, she had to go through qualies - seeded 2, she beat Zoe Radojicic 3 & 0 in Q1, (WC)Camille Townsend 0 & 2 in Q2, and 13th seed Taylor Johnson 3 & 1 in Q3 but she sadly got thrashed by BFF Abigail Desiatnikov in R1, 0 & 3

Re: Peruvian sweetie Dominique Schaefer 💎💝

Domi is playing G1 Copa Del Café in Costa Rica, she's the 9th seed there and through to the QFs after she beat Kianah Motosono 1 & 1 in R1, Safiya Carrington 3 & 1 in R2, and (WC)Taylor Bridges 7-6(6) 6-2 in R3

She will face fellow 1999 girl Maria Vittoria Viviani (who upset 2nd seed Desiatnikov in R2) in QF

Re: Peruvian sweetie Dominique Schaefer 💎💝

POTA @Potapovushina

Thank you for making a thread for Domi and supporting her.

I was thinking about that towards the end of 2015 but got distracted in the off-season.


Anyway, Domi is a girl with potential. But I won't make any predictions nor have any exact expectations as she's still young and has a lot to develop.

She barely turned 17 this week, and actually defeated Viviani on her birthday. Well, I think the match passed midnight in Costa Rica but she started playing the match on the 7th (her actual birthday).

Watched a bit of her QF and I was impressed. She's very solid off both sides. Her backhand. and her forehand is good but very inconsistent. Her serve is so, so... But has good placement on both 1st and 2nd from what I saw. She likes to mix it up with drop shots and slices as well. And comes to the net when she needs to.

All of these of course can be improved as I'm talking from the junior point of view. But at this age is all about developing in every area. She gets frustrated quite easily when making dumb errors but seems to regroup fast.

Hopefully 2016 will be a better year for her.

Started with a SF showing at the G1 event in San José. Although as I mentioned earlier she finished her QF late and was programmed for the SF at 2PM. She lost 6-1 6-4 and had to play doubles after and lost badly. Agh. The schedule was unfair.

Still a good first week of the season.

Don't know her schedule but she's confirmed to play the Fed Cup Zone I in Bolivia next month. It will be on red clay. She made her Fed Cup last year (went 1-0 in singles and 2-0 in doubles) to help Peru get promoted.

The expectations are not high for Peru in Zone I but Domi should get some good playing experience against much tougher oponnents in comparison to Zone II.

Re: Peruvian sweetie Dominique Schaefer 💎💝

@Panther24

I actually thought of tagging you when I created the thread, but for some reason I didn't

It's cool that you could watch her play, do you live in San José or was the match streamed
The scoreline against Tyra is disappointing yeah, but the scheduling was very unfortunate for her indeed Still, starting the year with a G1 SF is very nice, hopefully she has more deep runs in South America in the next weeks

Also, it's cool that she's getting to play Fed Cup again soon, she must be pretty pumped about that

The G1 San José event had a live stream all week on their website for their CC matches. Unfortunately I wasn't aware of this until the day she played her QF, which I watched a bit from my phone and then had to go out. Watched the first set and bits of the second.

But yeah, it was a good week to start the year.

Off-topic: Saw a few videos of POTApova and Pervushina. I liked them. Haven't followed juniors much since Belle/Ana K. But I'll keep an eye on them.

Re: Peruvian sweetie Dominique Schaefer 💎💝

Haha yeah, Pota and Pervu are love

You should check Rybakina too if you get the occasion, she's great too

Btw, Domi is making her Top 100 debuts this week, up to a newCHR of 86 (+42)
She's playing the G1 in Venezuela this week, the field is so weak it's ridiculous Great opportunity for more easy points

I'll look up Rybakina to check her out as well.

POTA

You got a dream final in Caracas.

Domi will play top seed Pervushina tomorrow.

So proud of Domi's effort throughout the week, especially in the QF and SF, both which were very tough. Keeps up the good start to the year.

Of course Olesya is the favorite. So Domi has nothing to lose. It will be her toughest challenge and no surprise it comes in the final.

Well done, Domi. Another good week. Go out there and do your best.
