America's New Sweetheart Alison Riske!
 
I would like to start a cheering thread for one of the sweetest young girls out there. Alison is so nice and always smiling. She's had some great results this summer, and let's hope she can do well in the pro's! :worship: :kiss: :hug:

Nice win over Frilling, 7-5 in the third. :hatoff: Alison is the only wild card still alive in the 18s.

I really hope Alison has some great success in '08! I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Alison and her mother in Ashland and they really are two of the sweetest people you'll ever met. Mrs. Riske is so far from the prototypical pushy tennis parent-it's clear they're the best of friends and she simply just wants the best for her daughter.'

FYI, Alison has said she is definitely going to college for all four years, regardless of whether or not she wins the NCAA's. She said that based on watching the experiences of her sister on tour, she knows that she's not ready to handle professional life. She's just playing pro tournaments for the time being in order to get experience.

Good job Alison! Good luck in the MD!
I was just about to make a thread for her when I saw this. :lol:
According to tennisrecruiting.net, she's going to Vanderbilt.
I wish that she would have tried the pro circuit for a bit.

This year Alison made the SF of Indian Harbour Beach 50k as a qualifier. She made the final of the 10k Hilton Head a couple years ago where she lost in three sets to top seed Mueller.

Same here. It seems that some of the ones that should try pro don't and some who play pro (Asia Muhammed and Danielle Mills) shouldn't.

Alison beat Lauren today 6-4 6-1. She has seriously found some form this year. :)
