Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
Time to open a thread about my favourite junior player.
She is born on 14.05.1993 and she is probably France's biggest hope.
She reached two times the QF in Les Petits As in Tarbes and she also won one Grade 3 title in Tunisia.

She is 259th in the juniors rank, which is quite impressive for such a young girl.
Kristina is very very tall for her age (more than 1m75) and she is known to hit amazing forehands. One of my friends who saw her playing compared her game to Mary's !!!

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
I started the thread too early I know, but Kristina was making a great show during her match against Anastasia Pivovarova (number 2 in the juniors and number 561 on tour).
She lost 64 67(6) 60 in 2 hours and a half.
She was leading 50 in the second set, but she wasn't able to conclude it on her first occasions. She needed at least 8 SPs to take it. Then, Pivovarova who is physically stronger as born in 1990 showed all her experience to win the match. The last games were very close but Kristina wasn't able once again to take her occasions.

I hope she is not too disappointed. She really showed today how talented she is.
I am proud of her :hug: I hope some people will support her as well, she deserves it :).

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
48 min is the time for the last set :eek: and it's a bagel !

Kristina seems to be a 17 years old player but she is only 14 :eek: !!

Good luck in doubles with Amandine (another 1993 player).

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
Definitely no luck with close matches.
Kristina and Amandine lost 76(6) 75 to Reka Zsilinska and Tyra Calderwood. :sad:
I don't know what is her next tournament.
Amandine is in the entry lists of some ITF tournaments (Montpellier and Marseille). I hope Kristina will ask a WC too.

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
So after a 1991 generation a bit dissapointing, 1993 generation will be a great generation with Amandine, Juliette and Kristina.

Some many players who will become without doubt professional !

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
She looks very promissing! :D

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
Yes, she is very promissing, and she is a very good player. She is -2/6 and this year, she fought a lot of -30.... and she won a ITF tournament!!! ^^. And she is only 14!! She is the favorite to the France Championship 13-14!

She reminds me a little bit of vaidisova in these pictures.She is tall!

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
I am not sure but I would say that she has some Croatian origins.
Anyway, the French girls who come from Serbia Irena and Gracia are not very successful for the moment :lol: .
Yes Kristina is the favourite to take the title in the French Championships. If she reaches at least the last step, we will have a chance to see her as the FFT uploads all the finals. :)
But I have just discovered that the tournament is public and free. :woohoo: As I will be in holidays, I will try to come and watch her. :)

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
As expected Kristina is playing Les Championnats de France 13/14 ans, where she is the favourite.
The draw is : here. I don't see who can threaten her except Amandine Hesse, but they could meet only in final. I will be there for the QF or SF.
Good luck Kristina, win the title !! :D

Iceland Jun 26th, 2007 03:03 PM

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
Kristina is in SF :).
Her run till this step :
R1 : vs bye
R2 : def. Hubert 61 61
R3 : def. Collombon 60 61
QF : def. Deville 63 60

If the weather is nice tomorrow, I will try to come in RG and see her match. She is playing against Seateun who has some references, but once again, Kristina will probably destroy her.

Geoffrey91 Jun 27th, 2007 12:25 PM

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
I have bad eyes or Amandine lost to Vernet 6/2 6/2 ???

Another great hope ?!!

Well done to her and :hug: to Amandine !

Kristina destroys every player !

In boys draw, Cedric Commin is favourite ! I played against him 4 years ago when he was still 30/2. I lost 6-1 6-4 !

Iceland Jun 27th, 2007 04:16 PM

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!
Amandine's loss is indeed very unexpected, Vernet is not supposed to be as good as her. I guess that Kristina won't miss the opportunity now to take the title :p. She has been very impressive since the beginning of the week, that just confirms the idea I had of her. She is a future star ;).
This time, I will go to RG if it doesn't rain of course.

A little parenthesis : Léolia Jeanjean won the title in the 11/12 ans competition !! :)
