on Allie kiick, she just beat Lara ARRUABARRENA of Spain who recently made the Round of 16 in Indian Wells, quarters in Bogota and won the Cali Challenger tournament! She is up on Vania King 5-2 right now on the second round of qualifying at Miami.
Tennis fans that were fortunate enough last week to soak in the Gainesville Women’s Tennis Classic may have also got a glimpse of a future Florida Gator.
Allie Kiick, a 17-year-old senior out of Fort Lauderdale, won the tournament in straight sets. That means she’s 5-0 this year in $10,000 prize tournaments.
Although she hasn’t officially signed, she does plan to play for the Gators starting in the 2013-2014 season.
From what I've heard if Allie does well this spring and summer (and I'm sure she has her own definition of what "well" means) then she'll go pro. But if her results aren't great then she'll head to UF in the fall. Qualifying for Miami is a pretty good start!
