Maria Fernanda Alvarez-Teran

I didn't realize she didn't have a cheering thread She's ranked inside Top250, she has to have one!
She's currently having a very good year, reaching career-high ranks every second week or so
She probably won't get into RG qualies but should get into Wimbledon qualies. I wonder if she plays there

Good luck Maria!

Re: Maria Fernanda Alvarez-Teran

Great!! Thanks Freakan!! I'm new to this thread sites, and I was thinking about starting a thread for Nanda, but just didn't know how to do it. I'm from Bolivia also and I follow Nanda's results and news always, I've posted a couple of comments before, asking people who have seen her play, what they think about her game. At that time María Fernanda wasn't in a good physical shape, but I've read she's more fit now, and it is starting to show in her results. Her best victories sofar I guess have been over Coco Vandeweghe last week (4-6 6-3 7-6), Soledad Esperon twice last year, and Agustina Lepore twice also. And a curious note, she beat Dominika Cibulkova (ranked WTA 16th last week) when they played juniors.

Thanks again Freakan for the thread!

Re: Maria Fernanda Alvarez-Teran

I actually follow her results sinc early stages of her junior career and I know she's talented so it's very dissapointing to see that she's losing easily to players like Tadeja Majeric
She's clealry playing better in tournaments that take place in South America or Mexico.

Re: Maria Fernanda Alvarez-Teran

Yes, it's very dissapointing to see her beating a player like Vandeweghe and then loose to players like Majeric, Tan or Harmsen. I don't know if the problem is in her head or she still has some weight problems. Has anyone seen her play lately? She never plays here in Bolivia so I don´t know how her fitness or game is.

Re: Maria Fernanda Alvarez-Teran

I dont think that her problem is her head,she have won a lot of match with a very close scoreline.

Re: Maria Fernanda Alvarez-Teran

She is in the semis as the third seed...

there are some videos of her here:

http://www.tvtenis.com.br/

she still needs to get more fit and i think she needs to work on her backhand some but she hits a nice ball and definitely could go high in the rankings if she works hard

good luck in the semis MFA!

Re: Maria Fernanda Alvarez-Teran

Her semifinal match just finished. She won and now is in the final against the winner of Maria Fernanda Alves and Ana Clara Duarte. She's got a nice chance to win the tournament.
I agree that she still needs to work on her fitness, even though she's improved a lot from last year (she was soo out of shape).
Good luck in the final Nanda!

$25,000 Campos Do Jordoa Brazil
C25 27 Jul 2009 to 02 Aug 2009 Entry: DA Hard (O)
