View Full Version : Fiona Ferro

Apr 12th, 2012, 12:47 PM
Hi everyone!

A deserved thread for Fiona who is a young french prospect for the future. She was born in march 1997 and is doing very good on junior circuit.

she's training in Nice at the ISP Academy. Her actual coach is former Alize Cornet coach when reached rank n°11, Pierre Bouteyre. She won the french championships at 12 in 2009 and semis at 13-14 last year (losing to Muntean). Fiona improved very nicely since a year.

She reached Florence finale (G2) last week and is now in Cap d'Ail Semi finale facing Bara of Romania. Here a video of her at 12 years old when she won the french championshipshttp://www.fft.fr/actualites/tennis-media/les-videos/fiona-ferro-championne-de-france-12-ans-2009?page=1&theme=Junior


Good luck to her!

Fiona is the #1 French girl on the ITF Junior rankings. Which is quite impressive seeing as she is only 15 years old. :eek:

She ended up withdrawing from the semifinal against Bara in G2 Tennis Open Junior de Cap D'Ail. :confused: :(

thank you for sharing;)

I think she grew up but is still very thin though. She also changed her racket, switched Prince for Wilson.

Lost 1 & 4. :hug: Barbora's been playing very well this week so far it seems, she pretty much trashed her previous opponents, so not that bad.

Fiona got a good scalp! :yeah:

Jan 23rd, 2013, 07:26 AM
yeah she couldnt do anything against krejcikova who is 2 years older than her

but still learning, waiting for good results this year hopefully, she'll climb into the ranking maybe top 30 no?

I don't know much about her, but I just noticed 16-year-old Ferro is in the QF of 50K Contrexeville, after only a few tournaments on the ITF tour! Has anyone seen her play before? How much potential does she have?
Next up should be tough: T. Bacsinszky.
