Let's cheer for Varvara Flink!
 
I was surprised there were no thread for the cute Varya. :awww:

She's from Moscow and was born on December 13, 1996 - so she's gonna turn 16 soon.

She's currently ranked 63 in juniors (but got a CHR of 24 at the beginning of the year), and 722 at the WTA.

She lost in R2 at both Eddie Herr & Orange Bowl recently: 3-6 2-6 vs (1)Taylor Townsend at Eddie Herr, and 1-6 6-2 3-6 to (9) Christina Makarova at Orange Bowl.



Her results on the pro tour this year:



I guess she's gonna focus more on the Pro tour next year. Best luck to her! :D :cheer:

I remember I read an article about her and now found it again, might be interesting to read for you guys (even if it is in dutch ;)). She is trained by someone here in the Netherlands in Eindhoven. See a link to the article in dutch and tried to put in the translation via google, but somehow did not work. In short it is about how they got in contact, after a match Varvara played against De Vroome in Chile and lost in 3 sets. How Varava was sent to South America by her father and had to takecare for herself a 14 year old. She temporarily lives in Eindhoven to train, but for the rest she trains in Ukraine with ther Dutch trainer in Jalta. There she also has classes for math after the training. Interesting to see how her career develops.

No problem :). Yeah, I just remembered I read this just because of the fact her father sent her to Soth America at 14 years old. The article just says not more than that about it, but it just sounds so brutal. Maybe the truth is different, just can't imagine sending my kid to another continent at 14:help:. Probably she must have been with others and/or coaches, but without any relatives.
