Priscilla :hug:
A great effort for a girl who doesn't turn 15 till May :eek:
She led 6-5 with a break in the Second and 4-1 with a break in the the Third :sobbing:
Next year :hug:
Probably the best 14U player in the world :)

Priscila :hug:

She basically did what Peers did and choked from 4-1

I certainly don't think this is her normal level. Either that or she's improved, we will see in 2013.

At any rate she's definitely overtaken Tomic and probably Bains too, strange because those two always got a lot more attention than her :shrug:

Her looks remind me a bit of Keothavong.

No Idea. I don't follow the Juniors at the age.

I'm sure someone else does tho.

Tornado Black? Jazzi Plews? Shilin Xu? Maia Lumsden?

Don't be ridiculous.

In addition to those mentioned by Joe., you can't say Hon is better than Fridman.

Hon impressed me but Patterson is such a wild ball basher. She doesn't seem to have any strategy whatsoever. lol Would be interesting to see Hon's evolution for sure but I don't think she's one the best U14. She kinda got lucky to fall on slumping Peers and against error machine Patterson lol.

Also, Ana Konjuh is only a few days short of being a 1998 girl and she has just won the Orange Bowl AND Eddie Herr U18s at just 14 years old....

I saw her playa gainst Patterson, who beat Rogowska, and her serve and Groundstrokes IMO are difeinitely better :shrug:
I haven't seen Xu or Plews, but she's better than Lumsden and Ali Black IMO :shrug:
Ali Black isn't even that good, and Priscilla is younger :inlove:

I agree, she is perhaps worse than Fridman, but I saw Olga play 14U final at European Championships and she is a claycourt puddler. As a 13 year old Hon almost beat Ilka Csoregi at teh Australian oppen and she is much more agressive than Fridman. On Hard and Grass I think she'd win :shrug:
As for Konjuh, I said 98 Girls :D I know that Ana is better, but she's also by far the best girl from 97 except for maybe Abanda :shrug:

Jokic, Plews, Bucsa (all the three defeated Hon this year), Fridman, Galfi, Payola, Tornado Ali Black, Kenin, Higuchi, Cristian, Su, Kuzmova, and so on.

Hon has good results, but there are a good bunch of players born in 1998 who are able to defeat her for sure

I agree that her Junior results have been far from spectacular, but on Hard Courts and the way she was playing some of the points at the Play-Off, I am pretty sure she would beat all except maybe a few of those players :)
We will see at Australian Open 2013 :D

Priscilla just needs to really work on her consistency.
