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: :(

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

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.

Fiona is 17 but not showing big impression yet. Even in junior she doesnt have great results seems like she doesnt care that much...

dont know if she's still been coached by Pierre Bouteyre (Alize Cornet former coach) but looking to see her play at Roland Garros as she got Main draw wild card!

Fiona just lost 1-6 5-7 against sabine lisicki at Roland Garros R1

Well lot of things to work for her

1) serve: so weak and inconsistent, has to work hard on it

2) lack of power : she was trying to hit her shots but lisicki was firing her and let her far from the ball

3) her game is still too much "junior", she showed some good sense of the game in the 2nd set, she was leading 4-1 but couldnt sustain it,

4) has to work hard to build her body
