Victoria Larriere
I think it's time for Victoria to have her own thread. :)

She's born 2nd May 1991 so she's 20 years old. She's currently ranked 331 with a career high ranking of 323 on the 4th July 2011. She is coached by her father Bernard Larriere.

In her career she's won six $10,000 events (Tortosa, Gausdal 1 and Gausdal 2 in 2010; Tenerife, Alcobaca and Valladolid in 2011). She also reached the final of $25,000 Port Pirie in 2010. In juniors she reached Top 50 in 2007.

Her official website is here: It's very well designed and is updated by Victoria regularly!

I wish Victoria all the best with her career!

Amazing! She will play (1)Sarah Gronert for the title! Victoria has officially broken the Top 300 no matter what! :yeah: :D

F: Victoria Larriere (FRA) df. (1)Sarah Gronert (GER) 6-3 1-6 7-5

Incroyable! :hearts: Victoria wins $50,000 Istanbul! By far the biggest win of her career! Hopefully she can continue to have more weeks like this and continue her rise up the rankings. Hopefully some photos of the final will be released soon. :cool:

Victoria saved a break point in the first game of the third set and was down 0-40 at *2-2 in the third set but won five points in a row to hold. At *5-5 there was a marathon game where there were six or seven deuces and Victoria finally held after many game points. She won it on her second match point, breaking the Gronert serve for only the second time in the match! :p

New on twitter. :) Seems like she's good friends with Richel Hogenkamp :hearts:

Re: Victoria Larriere
Thanks for the twitter link. :D

The qualifying draw is out for Tashkent. Here is the section that Victoria needs to get through.

(2)Yurika Sema (JPN) vs. Emma Laine (FIN)
(WC)Polina Merenkova (UZB) vs. Dalila Jakupovic (SLO)
Sofia Shapatava (GEO) vs. (WC)Maftana Yunusova (UZB)
Ekaterine Gorgodze (GEO) vs. (6)Victoria Larriere (FRA)

Re: Victoria Larriere
1R: (6)Victoria Larriere (FRA) df. Ekaterine Gorgodze (GEO) 6-2 6-3

Great start. :)

Zin Sep 11th, 2011 08:49 AM

Re: Victoria Larriere
She beat Shapatava 64 60 :)
Now faces Jakupovic. It's totally winnable, hope she qualifies and draws Fahrad :devil:

BlueTrees Sep 11th, 2011 10:34 AM

Re: Victoria Larriere
Another easy win! Hope she can beat Jakupovic and qualify for her first ever WTA maindraw. And yes Farhad would be a great first round draw. :oh: Just hope she avoids U.Radwanska. :unsure:

Geoffrey91 Sep 11th, 2011 11:09 AM

Re: Victoria Larriere
I expected even an easier match against Jakupovic than against Gorgodze & Shapatava. I still don't know how Jakupovic can beat Sema in straight sets.

Then Farhad or Sharipova would be a good 1st Rd.

Geoffrey91 Sep 12th, 2011 08:04 AM

Re: Victoria Larriere
Victoria has qualified for her first ever WTA MD tournament. She defeated Jakupovic 46 63 60, only losing 7 pts in the 3rd set :yeah:

Now hope her to avoid Radwanska in MD.

BlueTrees Sep 12th, 2011 11:25 AM

Re: Victoria Larriere
She drew Zuzana Kucova. Better than Radwanska but would've been better to get one of the WCs (Farhad or Sharipova). Let's see if she can get her first ever WTA maindraw win. :)

Renaud Sep 13th, 2011 09:21 AM

Re: Victoria Larriere
win 3-6 6-4 6-1, after 3-6 1-3
great result for first match :bounce:

BlueTrees Sep 13th, 2011 10:53 AM

Re: Victoria Larriere
Amazing! :D Her first ever WTA maindraw win. As Renaud said she was down 3-6 *1-3 15-30 so great comeback. She plays either (5)Rybarikova or (WC)Abduraimova in the second round. :)

She's on a nine match winning streak at the moment. The best tennis of her career.
