I did catch her play a few times by now. Actually you also can watch her match from yesterday and make an opinion, even if it wasn't a very good performance from her part: Keita (ROU) - Karner (AUT) (SF)

I don't think she really resembles anyone from WTA, maybe so far a bit like Stosur who has that big forehand, while her BH is more problematic and also does S&V at times. If Fatima makes it to WTA, she'll be quite unique, some people are already excited about her: https://twitter.com/zootennis/status/824983043203072000

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Fatima lost the SF 67(6) 06. As it happens in juniors, she pretty much collapsed after a tight first set tb
Looks like she'll play the other big U14 tournament near Paris as well

Here is the SF recording: Sportway - Kungens Kanna & Drottningens Pris 2017

From what I read, her origins are from the fula population in Guinea. Her grandad is from Conakry and came to study art in Romania in the 70's. He then married a romanian and remained here as a museum director. So Fatima is actually second generation romanian, as it were

Her grandad:

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Maria Sara Popa made it to the third round before losing a very tight match to a much taller czech girl. Watched most of the match and Sara is really fun to watch, she's lefty, got some nice shots but most of all she's very feisty and cheers herself on after every singles point she wins Like here, she's basically exactly like Cibulkova https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kR5-...u.be&t=1h2m18s

Open Super 12 Auray 2017
R64: Maria Sara Popa (ROU) d. Madeleine Joffe (FRA) 46 62 61
R32: Maria Sara Popa (ROU) d. (wc)Scarlett Nicholson (CAN) 62 64
R16: (wc)Karolina Kozakova (CZE) d. Maria Sara Popa (ROU) 64 75
