I think she's a more defensive player, even for her age. There used to be a picture of her on the internet but I can't find it. She's small (obviously) with long black hair. That's about all I know.

I saw her play at the Tennis Europe 14 & under event this summer in Bournemouth. She reached the final there, losing to Caitlin Hindmarsh 6-4, 1-6, 1-6 in the final. Officially from Essex, but I've not seen her yet representing us in any of the county team events.

How does she play? I know it's hard to say at such a young age but if you could just give a mini report that would be much appreciated.

Eden is playing the Jr. Orange Bowl this week in the U12 division. In the first round she faces Gloria Liang of Canada. Good luck Eden! :D

Eden won her first round match 61 62! She faces Francoise Abanda next. Good luck Eden! :D

Eden lost 61 76(4)! :sad: I'm not too surprised as Abanda is highly touted in Canada. Still good effort Eden!

We can't keep putting these young players on the board without seeing some real results first. If we create a thread for every potential junior, there would be thousands of theme. We need to wait and see when they reach the senior level, or win a junior slam before we start new threads on these junior players.

I understand what you're saying but I can't help but be optimistic and get a bit carried away at times. I promise I won't make another thread for an upcoming junior unless they do something to merit it. ;)

Anyways, Eden won her first round at Teen Tennis in Bolton 63 60 against her Polish opponent. She faces the Estonian 9th seed in the next round. Good luck Eden! :)

Without sounding harsh, why is it anyones decision wheter such threads are needed? I think its nice that people are willing to post info on players we may not neccessarily hear of so that we can follow their progress as fellow Brit fans and see how the progress?

And its always great to look back on too, so sorry to be rude, but just ignore the thread :shrug:

Good look Eden. Ur name is soo crazy you have got to be a star :lol:

Eden lost 60 62! :sad: She just has to get used to playing at this level. She's improved alot in the last 6 months though which is a good sign! :D
