Lizette Cabrera - FilAus Goddess
This girlllll needs a thread. Just recently won an ITF junior title in Europe, won Asia/Oceania closed junior championship, won a platinum AMT and has just won her first 25k main draw match.

R32 Lizette Cabrera (AUS) def Ayu Fani Damayanti (INA) 6-4 6-2


Very impressive for a 1997 girl. :) Naiktha has a rival. :angel::hearts:

Re: Lizette Cabrera !!!
I love it when players randomly step it up and go on a streak like this. Interesting to note that she won't turn 15 for another 3 months.

Keep it up.

Re: Lizette Cabrera !!!
Lizette has now won 2 matches in the doubles draw, with Tjandramulia, and is into the SF :eek:

I wonder how many 14yos have WTA doubles rankings??

They play Tyra/Tammi for a spot in the final.

Re: Lizette Cabrera !!!
Okay I couldn't help myself and had to check.

There are only two 1997 girls with WTA doubles rankings at the moment:

#843 Francoise Abanda (CAN) 5/2/97 - Like Lizette, she also made the SF of a $25K
#1138 Arina Folts (UZV) 1/1/97

Lizette is much younger then them with a DOB of 19/12/97. Olivia Tjandramulia is also younger than both girls who are already ranked with a DOB of 11/5/97.

Go girls! :)

Esperance R1:

(Q)Lizette Cabrera def. Mai Minokoshi 5-7 6-3 6-2

Another great win for Lizette and her second over a top 400 player. She also won the Esperance Pro-Am tournament last week. She next faces a girl from TPE who beat Sanders in R1 after Jones withdrew.

Re: Lizette Cabrera !!!

She looks like shes from an Asian heritage, although 'Cabrera' isn't really an asian name.

Re: Lizette Cabrera !!!
she looks Pinay (Fillipino) to me.

Re: Lizette Cabrera !!!
Filipino is the only one that makes sense given the Philippines Spanish history.

Still a nice tournament for her. Really impressive that she's winning matches in pro events as a 14 year old :yeah: To be honest I never really heard much about her before she won the GB2 in Fiji. It'll be interesting to follow her results. She seems like a genuine prospect, along with Naiktha Bains. Lizette is just two days younger! Naiktha and Lizette are currently both ranked #979 on the WTA. Together they are the two youngest girls (and the only players under 15 years old) with a WTA ranking!

I'm guessing that Lizette will get a MWC into Australian Open juniors next year so that'll be exciting.

Hi guys, new Lizette fan here :wavey:

I didn't heard of her before that GB2, but she had amazing results since then.
I love the fact that she's Pinay :drool: and I also love her name :D Plus, she's super cute :oh:

It looks like after a few pro experiences, Lizette is going back to juniors. She's on the entry list of 2 tournaments in Korea Rep: a G2 + the Asian/Oceania GB1. I wish her the best of luck :cheer:

Re: Lizette Cabrera !!!
She might be able to have a crack at AO juniors MD. She should end the year top 100, or at least I hope so :)

Re: Lizette Cabrera !!!
This week Lizette qualified for $25K Margaret River before losing 6-4 6-2 to (8)Katerina Kramperova (CZE). She beat Priscilla Hon in one of her qualifying matches, another young Aussie hope :p

She's in pretty good form at the moment, let's hope she does well in the junior events in Korea :yeah:
