That was the 1st part, which won Harutyunyan the right to play in this 2nd part. I don't know why Montez is playing both. :confused:

Montez excited about 2nd chance

The Desert Sun

INDIAN WELLS - Getting a second chance was completely unexpected for La Quinta's Pam Montez.


Figuring her loss in the semifinals in the Pacific Life Open challenger round was it, Montez planned on playing an ITF junior tournament in Costa Rica. The flight was already booked.

So when Montez got a call Tuesday, it was completely unexpected.

Montez is one of four players who will play in the Pacific Life Open prequalifier today. The winner of the tournament will earn a berth into the qualifying tournament, which begins Monday.

"We had everything scheduled. I was supposed to leave and bought a plane ticket, so it was surprising," Montez said of her phone call. "It's like a second chance. I'm feeling pretty good, so I'm excited."

In the first match today, Zara Harutyunyan, the winner of the challenge round two weeks ago, will face Julia Cohen, a 17-year-old from Miami, which begins at noon. Montez will play immediately after against Coco Vandeweghe, a 15-year-old who trains in Palm Springs with Jose Higueras.

Last year, Montez won the prequalifier, beating Vandeweghe in the first round. This will be the third time Montez and Vandeweghe will face each other, with Montez winning the previous two meetings.

"She's a big girl, so I have to make her move a bit and be consistent," Montez said. "She can't plant her feet, because she has a huge shot. She hits very hard."

Montez had lost 7-5, 2-6, 10-6 to Alexandra Podkolzina in the semifinal of the challenge round. Podkolzina would lose the final 6-0, 6-1 to Harutyunyan, who trains at the Weil Academy in Ojai.

However, Montez thinks Cohen is the favorite.

"She's always been in the top-10 in the ITF juniors," Montez said.

However, Montez is not ruling herself out.
"I'm looking forward to Saturday to see how I do against Coco and we'll go from there," Montez said.

Vandeweghe, who recorded her first professional win two weeks ago at the Charley M Desert Classic in Palm Desert, said she has changed over the last year since she's played Montez.

Vandeweghe, 15, has moved from her home in Rancho Santa Fe so she could train with famed coach Jose Higueras in Palm Springs for the last four months.

"He's just added more depth and kept everything solid, adding footwork and stuff like that," said Vandeweghe, the granddaughter of former New York Knick Ernie Vandeweghe and niece of UCLA and Denver Nuggets star Kiki Vandeweghe.

In addition to winning her first professional match to make her 1-3, Vandeweghe also had an impressive run in the USTA National Opens, where she lost in the second round, but then won seven matches to win the back draw.

However, Vandeweghe knows it won't be easy against Montez. "She's a pretty crafty player and she got a lot of balls back," Vandeweghe said. "But I've changed a lot as a player. I imagine she has as well."

No ranking points or much money...that must explain it.

Julia Cohen couldnt even pre-qualify :rolls:

It's sad ... when Julia was Larcher de Brito's age, SHE was the one getting the Miami main draw wc, if I recall correctly. This wc gift-a-thon thing is ruthless; you've got a couple years to produce or the door will be slammed in your face. Even if you're still just a kid. So Julia's time has expired; she's on her own now.

It's not that I feel sorry for Julia; unfortunately, she hasn't been able to progress in her game as her benefactors had hoped. That's sports. But it's something that other young players who count on wc's should take notice of -- the stream is going to dry up before you know it. So work on your game, not on your wc-recipient tricks. :o
