Somebody in mens' tennis askes about Justine Bourdon, that's why I thought it's time to discuss the belgian (female) juniors again. Every couple of days I will post the name of a new player with some stats and info so we can start a convo about that player.

In Dutch we have a saying 'De beste scheepslui staan aan wal' meaning the ones who think to know it best are the ones who are just watching and not participating. In this thread the goal is to give your honest expectations and opinion about a player even though you don't have inside info on that player. So just go by your gut feeling and what you (think to) know.

Justine Bourdon

Since I mentioned her in my opening post, I guess she's ideal to start with.

Born August 9, 1988, she's close to her 17th Birthday.

Hyped some years ago as the Walloon follow-up for Justine Henin-Hardenne, I think the results proof she's far from achieving the same. Maybe she's focussing on her studies, a wise decision following her history in tennis ;)

Who knows more about this girl and knows why she never had the expected results?

I don't really know her but all I know is that I trained next to her in my club because she came training there (Ath - Aat) 3 years ago (well maybe she still comes but I am not there all the time :p)

I don't think she will be a good player, I don't know her so good, but her results are saying enough!

Aude is belgians second ranked female junior. She doesn't have an ETA-ranking.

Being doubled-handed on both side, Aude is an entertaining player to watch. During her short career she certainly had her share of injuries which slowed down her progress. She had a good run at last Junior Wimbledon, the time where I thought she made the necesarry and long-awaited jump to a higher level. Since, she didn't perform at the same level to back up what she did in England. I was a bit sceptical when she did an Asian tour earlier this year (searching points in far away places is not a good sign). I think she will certainly be good enough to have a Caroline Maes-like career, but time will tell if she's good enough to be top-150 or better.
