Arrow Vamos Estefania! Craciun!

How can it be that Uruguay's number one player, rising star Estefania Craciun, has no cheering thread of her own? At least, I couldn't find one. And I think she's one of the better chicas latinas out there right now.

So here 's a thread for Stefi (as I will call her for now ). Let's see how far she can get in the Charlottesville 50K, where she is playing in the QF's today -- and in the long run, let's see how high her ranking can rise by year's end.

Let's start with an Estefania factfile, courtesy of the Fed Cup web site:

*Date of Birth : 01 Jan 1987
*Place of Birth: Montevideo, Uruguay
*Height: 1.71m
*Weight: 60kg

*Right Handed

*Current WTA Rank: 287

Maybe somebody has a pic they can post.

P.S. If you want to post in Spanish in Stefi's thread, that's fine.

Re: Vamos Estefania! Craciun!

Thanks for the pics!

Estefania is still alive in Charlottesville doubles with Betina , though she lost in the singles in a 3rd-set tiebreaker.

Next week she heads down to Florida slong with a lot of the other chicas latinas, to play in the main draw of the Indian Harbor Beach 50K.

Re: Vamos Estefania! Craciun!

Betina and Estefania are friends since a long time. Estefania is one year older that Betina but they have been travelling together when they were juniors and had to play 4 or 5 times each other in the ITF circuit.

Nice to see they are doing pretty well in doubles together

Re: Vamos Estefania! Craciun!

Kops Jones/Osterloh def Jozami/Craciun 7/6(3)-7/6(4)

Another loss in a final-set tiebreak! This was just not her week, was it.

Now on to Indian Harbor Beach. Good luck to all the chicas latinas playing there.

Re: Vamos Estefania! Craciun!

Estefania made the QFs in the Palm Beach Gardens 25K. Not bad! In the QFs she lost to Rossana in straight sets. But I'm not going to complain about this loss, since we all love Rossana.

Re: Vamos Estefania! Craciun!

She and Betina are doing pretty well together in doubles, it is probably coz they are friends and have fun on court.. what a shame that she had to face with Rossana in QF.

Good luck tomorrow girls

Estefania lost a tough 3-setter in the quarters in the Carson, Calif. 50K. I don't l know where she's playing next.

Re: Vamos Estefania! Craciun!

She has a free week, and then she will be playing another Challenger in the USA.

Ah, thanks. I see she's in the Allentown main draw next week. Allentown is just an hour away from me, but right now it doesn't look like I'll have a chance to get up there.

She's playing tomorrow, and I might get to see her match, or at least part of it.
