What a beauitful and decent draw for MARIA SHARAPOVA! :bounce: :bounce: She should make to SF if she beat Amber Liu!

Wow, the bottom half is way heavier than the top half. Tough draw for Puchkova, Golovin and Brattchikova! :rolleyes:

Ouch! Tough 1st round for Douchevina! :mad: :mad:

I'm surprised to see Birnerova playing juniors curcuit this year.... She won't be able to finish a year in juniors anyway, so why not to try something more serious... like qualies of AO.

good luck to Vera (get that upset, girl!), Masha (go kido ;), Nina and Olga!!!!

Tough draw for the girls, I'm sure Vera can pull an upset off.

Masha ;) good to see her coming to OZ.

Might try and check this out if I can find my way around Melbourne.

Vanity, bad luck to Sharapova and Golovin? Why? They are going to help bring Nick Bollettieri back to prominence. Oh, I guess that's why you wished them bad luck. But Nick's return to the top is only a matter a time.

Vera v Chia....

Vera was too powerful at 1st then she lost concentration and fell into Chia's way of playing but just got out of it .... PHEW :)

Masha and Nina were both great from star to finish.

blasting winners from both sides and just too powerful.

Poor Joanna :( Matea just pummelled her into submission.

bad luck Nina, Matea was just too strong

I'm going for Vera as I know what she can do, when she's on fire others are left bewildered.

Udachi Maria! Win the title for Russia. And then take the trophy back to Bradenton, Florida!

Maria vs. Vera is very interesting. But stopping Myriam Casanova, the girl who loves to hammer the Russian girls, is a very tough task.

Semi results

Myriam Casanova d. Matea Mezak 6-3 6-2

<font color=red>Maria Sharapova d. Vera Douchevina </font> 6-3 6-4

well done Maria, she was just too good and acurate today and won with a break in each set.
I'm sure both have a great future.

Vera didn't quite do herself justice, I hope both play for Russia in the U18 team this year if needed .

Myriam absolutely crunched Matea,pummelled her from back.

Final is gonna be interesting.....

Head to head is 1-1 i think but its their 1st meet at U18 Level.

1999 Eddie Herr Champs U14
Myriam bt Maria 7-6(5) 7-5

2000 Orange Bowl U16 in QF
Myriam bt Maria 2-6 7-5 6-2

Not sure where Maria won her meet though but I'm pretty sure she did win once.

Final result

but its not good :(

Myriam Casanova d. <font color=red>Maria Sharapova </font> 6-1 6-4 :sad: :sad: :mad:

Not another beating by Myriam, poor Masha right from the start Myriam punished her and was all over her, she must have been twice her size.

Masha never recovered really and also went down an early break in 2nd set but tried to fight on but Myriam was just too powerful.

But Myriam is two years older than Masha.

Martian KC
Jan 19th, 2002, 04:54 PM
Unseeded Maria Sharapova will be up against Myriam Casanova (5) to vie for the girl's title. The only time they played previously was a little over a year ago in Maria's own backyard at the the IMG Academy in Florida where the Eddie Herr International is staged. Maria defeated Myriam there in two close sets for the Girls 16 title.

Here is where Maria had beat her.;) But not this time!:D CONGRATS MYRIAM!!!! Who won in doubles, Eggy?:)

Junior tennis will do it soon i think

I totally forgot about that Eddie Herr, i knew it was a big champs

Jan 19th, 2002, 06:55 PM
Poor Maria! She was playing so well. Only to get crushed by Myriam Casanova, the Russian wrecking ball!

Eggy, not only does Maria give up about 2 years in age and experience, but according the ITF junior bios, Maria, who is listed as an inch taller than Myriam, amazingly gives up nearly 50 pounds in weight. unfortunately, a lack of size will probably be Maria's biggest problem on the WTA tour. But I'm hoping her talent can overcome her lack of weight.

Congrats to Myriam. She dominated eveyone. And she was playing doubles, too. Eggy, Myriam really dominates the junior Russian girls. But she won't have so easy when she joins the WTA tour. I can't see her beating Dementieva, Kournikova, Petrova and Krasnoroutskaya. Can you?

Martian KC
Jan 19th, 2002, 08:13 PM
