The 2004 Kristina Brandi Thread

I've attempted this in the past, but JollyRoger encourage I did so one more time.

Kristina Brandi is one of my favorite players in the WTA, I like her attitude and game, and best of all she's a Puertorican, just like me.

Here is some information about Kristina:

SINGLES - Winner (1 WTA Tour):
2003 - ITF/Charlottesville-USA, ITF/Surbiton-GBR, ITF/College Park-USA, ITF/Louisville-USA, ITF/Peachtree City-USA, ITF/Albuquerque-USA, ITF/Troy-USA;
1999 - 's-Hertogenbosch, ITF/Salt Lake City-USA;
1998 - ITF/Clearwater-USA, ITF/Phoenix-USA, ITF/Peachtree City-USA, ITF/Austin-USA;
1994 - ITF/Indianapolis-USA.
ADDITIONAL: Puerto Rican Fed Cup Team 2003

Career High In Singles: 27th
Career Win/Loss Record: 361-254
Kristina Brandi - professional tennis player

Kristina Brandi is a top WTA professional tennis player from Florida. She has been ranked in the top 50, with a ranking high of #27.

A right-handed player with a two-handed backhand, Brandi has won WTA & ITF tournaments and has reached the finals of many more. Her Grand Slam record includes two rounds at the US OPEN, the FRENCH OPEN, and the round of 16's (4th rounds) of both the AUSTRALIA OPEN and WIMBLEDON. Kristina is the winner of the grass court pre-Wimbledon event, The Heineken Trophy in the Netherlands where she beat players in the top ten of the world to capture the title.

ITF wins in the United States include: Peachtree City, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Austin, Indianapolis, and Clearwater. Her victories have included Jelena Dokic, Amanda Coetzer, Elena Likhovtseva, Amy Frazier, Elena Bovina, Franchesca Schiavone, and Anne Kremer.

Kristina describes herself as "fortunate and goal oriented." Her pet peeves are "rude people and bad attitudes." Her favorite sports other than tennis are ice skating and professional hockey. Kristina writes for cnnsi.com and sportsline.com and enjoys public speaking to motivate children in schools.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.

Kristina will face Jelena Kostanic in the first round, if she advances (which I know she will...I Hope...*knocks on wood*) she will face Meghan Shaughnessy.

Kristina has a great opportunity to make the 4th round if she were to defeat Megan!

TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

Kristina reached the 3rd round of the Nasdaq-100 where she fell to Dokic. After defeating Meghan Shaughnessy on the 2nd round.

Up next for Kristina, a quick stop in the ITF Tour one more time before opening her clay court season at Charleston for the Family Circle Cup.

For a Latino Player Kristina is more comfortable on grass, but I hope she's able to scrap out many points in preparation for a good draw at the European Tier I's and at Roland Garros.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

Kristina reached yet another 3rd round, or maybe it was 2nd. I just got back from my Board Meeting and I'm extremely exhausted & disoriented. *lol*
