A girl to watch IMO!

She's 18 years old (born Jun 6, 1994), who's been having quite good results over the last few months!

She finished 2012 with a ranking (777) for the 1st time, and is currently ranked 700. :)

So far, she's played 3 tournaments in 2013, 3 Sharm-El-Sheikh 10Ks:

- in the 1st one (2 weeks ago), she went all her way as a qualifier to the final, where she lost to Lara Michel in 3 sets. On her way to the final, she beat the Seed 3 Melis Sezer & the Seed 6 Daria Mironova. :yeah:

- she reached the QF in the 2nd one (last week), beating on her way the Seed 8 Iva Mekovec, before falling to Doroteja Eric the eventual runner-up. :)

- and this week again she reached the QF, beating the Seed 2 Tig, before falling against Ipek Soylu.

Her best results so far are: this final in 10K Sharm-El-Sheikh 2 weeks, ago, and last year: 2 SFs, in 10K Prague & 10K Piestany and a QF in 15K Vendryne. :)

So, so far she's had good scalps, and seems to be improving fast. Let's see how she goes this year! :D :cheer:

I'm glad Gerry is around, because there's no real community here for the Czechs and the Russians like you have for some of the other players.

Only thing is Gerry tends to burn herself out with enthusiasm-- she's been off-site for three months. Come back, Gerry!

some bad news Pernilla is not very tall

Pernilla broke into Top 400 for the 1st time this month. :D Last week, she was at a CHR of 389 :), but is down 17 spots in the rankings this week and out of Top 400 again, at #406. :(

Whatever, she'll get back there soon enough.

She's been doing good in the last few days! :D -> She qualified for 50K+H Sobota in Poland this week. :yeah: Beat (3)Daniela Seguel 4 & 3 in Q1 :eek: :worship:, Justine Ozga 6-3 7-6(3) in Q2, and Olga Doroshina 1 & 0 in Q3. :eek: :yeah: On fire! :banana:

And now, she beat Marcinkevica in R1, 6-4 3-6 6-4. :woohoo: :yeah: When she broke Diana's serve right at the start of the 2nd set to take the 6-4 *1-0 lead, I thought she was in good control of the match. But she was broken right back, and since that moment, there's been a shitload of breaks of serve, none of both managing to confirm the lead for more than a couple games when being a break up. After she lost the 2nd set, I was afraid Pernilla'd lost her chances in the match, but she managed to hold serve at the most important moment of the match, at 4-4 in the 3rd. That's what matters in the end. :yeah:

R2 vs. Vogt, who beat the top seed Hlavackova (who is in a TERRIBLE slump :sad:) in 3 sets in R1, saving 4 MPs in the process. :unsure: It will be tough for sure, but Pernilla must feel really confident at the moment so who knows, hopefully she'll play a competitive match. :) Pojd :cheer::cheer:
