Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari
 
Okay I think Maria deserves a thread. She's only 16 and already in the top 700! Shes currently ranked 701 but her career-high ranking is 698 which she achieved in November. Maria has 5 wins over top 750 opponents, her biggest win over #550 Artamonova. Shes currently ranked 350 in juniors and her career-high there is 203, but she focuses on senior tour events so that ranking doesn't really matter. Here is some biographical information:
Born: 25 July 1995
Plays: Right handed with two-handed backhand
Favorite Surface: Clay
Coach: Riccardo Rosolin

Maria's BFF on tour is Agni Stefanou who is 6 years older than her. I think Maria used to train at Evert's Academy in Florida because I remember seeing a photo of her with a shirt that said Evert on it, but maybe she was just wearing the shirt...She is a big hope for Greek tennis and her mother is Angeliki Kanellopoulou, who was a former WTA player who achieved a lot. She got up to #43 in the rankings, was a Fed Cup player for Greece for many years, reached the Olympic quarterfinals, reached the final of the WTA Athens event that we used to have in the late 1980s and early 1990s. She played in many Grand Slam main draws and even reached the round of 32 twice at the French Open. Hopefully Maria can be like her mother :D

Not sure why but the results came out weird looking :spit:
Interesting Article:
Προπόνηση με τη Schiavone για τη Σάκκαρη


Μία μεγάλη εμπειρία είχε η Μαρία Σάκκαρη αυτή την εβδομάδα. Η Ελληνίδα αθλήτρια βρίσκεται στην Ιταλία και συνεχίζει τις προπονήσεις της για την προετοιμασία της για τα διεθνή τουρνουά αλλά και τη συμμετοχή της στην Εθνική στους αγώνες Fed Cup.
Στη διάρκεια της προετοιμασίας είχε την ευκαιρία να προπονηθεί μαζί με την Ιταλίδα Francesca Schiavone και σε ένα σύντομο σχόλιο μας έστειλε τις εντυπώσεις της.
"Αυτή η εβδομάδα εδώ στην Ρώμη ήταν πολύ σημαντική γιατί προετοιμάστηκα όσο καλύτερα μπορούσα έχοντας διπλα μου μια από τις μεγαλύτερες τενίστριες αυτής τις εποχής την Francesca Schiavone η οποία εκτός ότι παίξαμε μαζί, μου έδωσε και συμβουλές για τις παίχτριες που θα αντιμετωπίσω στο fed cup και στο tour γενικά. Μου είπε να μην σκέφτομαι αν η αντίπαλος είναι Νο 1 ή Νο 300 στον κόσμο... το tennis είναι ένα και πρέπει να σκέφτομαι το παιχνίδι μου και τι πρέπει να κάνω μέσα στο γήπεδο.
Δεν είναι κάτι που δεν μου το έχουν ξαναπεί, αλλά είναι διαφορετικό να στο λέει face το face μια αθλήτρια που έχει κερδίσει Roland Garros και είναι μέσα στις 10 καλύτερες παίχτριες του κόσμου και την ευχαριστώ πολύ που με ενθάρρυνε λέγοντας μου ότι "μια μέρα θα τα καταφέρεις γιατί παίζεις πολύ καλά".
Χαίρομαι γιατί αυτό ήταν μια ακόμα εμπειρία για εμένα"

Καλή συνέχεια Μαρία.


Maria was in Rome practicing before Fed Cup and basically Schiavone gave her some advice about the tour. Maria said that Francesca didn't tell her anything that she hadn't heard before, but that it was special to come from someone who won Roland Garros and is in the top 10 :D

Maria made a magazine cover in Greece :cool:

*
The caption says “She has it in her blood”, which**is because her mom was a top 50 player on the WTA tour :)

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari
 
This week she played a 10K in Egypt:
R1: (8) Natela Dzalamidze RUS d. Maria Sakkari GRE 6-1 6-4
Maria just had an unlucky draw :hug:. Dzalamidze just won a 10K last week!
Before the match, Maria said that she is playing these 10Ks in Egypt because she wants good competition and she wants to improve. She also said that she is ready to play and that a lot of the other girls here are suffering and she has to watch what she eats and drinks so she doesn't get food poisoning like them.

She is taking next week off and then she is traveling to India for a 10K ;)

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari
 
Maria played a 10K in India this week:
R1: Sakkari GRE d. (Q) Zhu CHN (#1031) 6-2 6-4
R2: Sekulic GER (#762) d. Sakkari GRE 6-1 6-2
Pretty good week I guess :shrug:. Maria is younger and higher ranked than Sekulic but Sekulic is only 19 and was in the top 450 before so I guess the loss was pretty expected :shrug:. I like how Maria is playing a lot of ITFs now but I wish she still played some junior tournaments so she can win more and gain confidence and also it would've been nice to see how she would do in the junior slams :p

After R1, Maria said that playing in India was cool and a good experience because the conditions are tough and she plays with different players since in the European tournaments she plays mostly against European girls but now she is playing against Asian girls so it is different for her ;)

After R2, Maria said that Sekulic played well and didn't allow her to play her game and there was not much she could do :hug:

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari
 
10K Mumbai, India:
R1: Sakkari GRE d. (Q) Kinoshita JPN (#884) 6-4 6-1 :yeah:
R2: (7) Jaksic SRB (#507) d. Sakkari GRE 6-1 1-0 ret. :sad::hug:
After the match, Maria went back to Greece to see her doctor but the injury is not very serious and she should be back soon :)

Also Jaksic ended up winning the title, so it wasn't a bad loss :p

I think Maria reads this thread because she posted some of the photos from it on Facebook :cheer:

She's also up to a new career-high ranking of 690 :yeah:
