Smile Nadia Podoroska cheering thread

Nadia won her second pro tournament this week and I think it's about time she gets her own thread.

She was born in Rosario on February 10th, 1997, the granddaugther of Ukranian-born immigrants. She's a right hander who usually plays on clay, though her explosive game is extremely well suited for hard courts.

Her first WTA point came in a $10.000 tournament in Concepción, Chile, back when she was only 14 years and 9 months old -making her the third youngest player from Argentina to obtain WTA points behind none other than Gabriela Sabatini and Gisela Dulko-.

Her big breakthrough came in a $25.000 tournament played in her hometown where she managed to get to the QF by beating María Irigoyen, then ranked in the top 200. I was lucky enough to watch that match live and wrote a report on it here at Tennisforum, which you can find here: $25,000 Rosario (ARG) 2012 | May 07 (Winner : Teliana Pereira)

She had a couple of minor injuries that kept her sidelined for some months and stagnated her rise in the rankings for the following months, not making much progress in that area in 2013. She did, however, manage to win her first pro title at Santiago in November, beating local Cecilia Costa-Melgar in the final after a strange retirement with the player from Chile actually leading 5-3 in the third set before calling it quits.

Now she won her second tournament -a $10K, as well- in Lima, beating former top 100 Anastasia Pivovarova in the SF and will be ranked near the 550th position in the new rankings.

I read somewhere that her goal is to make it to the top 500 before Roland Garros, which would allow her to play the qualies of the Junior Grand Slams.

She's been coached by Carlos Rampello since she was a kid, and has been a hitting partner for the Fed Cup team, which acknowledges her as one of its future stars.

Here's to a great year for Nadia and many more wins to come

Re: Nadia Podoroska cheering thread

Congrats for the title Nadia .

I know is step by step but I would like her to play some tournaments in Europe, the last time she was injuried there. But it is okey to earn her first points in South America and then try to play in Europe with a better ranking.

Re: Nadia Podoroska cheering thread

Great idea, Nico!
I guess that if she makes to RG qualies she'll stay in Europe to play some pro tournaments in June.

Nadia and Carla withdrew from the doubles draw. Carla did play her first round match -and lost- so no idea who's the injured one.

Re: Nadia Podoroska cheering thread

(6)Nadia Podoroska (ARG) d. Stephanie Mariel Petit (ARG) 6-2 6-4

Final will be vs either Aranza Salut or Csilla Argelyan.

This win puts her around #519. If she wins the tournament she'll achieve her goal of reaching top 500 before Roland Garros

Re: Nadia Podoroska cheering thread

Nadia juega con Argyelan in the final. Honestly I think she can make US Open qualies if she keeps playing this way
