Last month Naiktha played three G1s in Asia, reached the second round in two of them and lost first round in the other. A bit disappointing but these are big events with girls up to 18 years old! She's currently ranked #195 on the ITF junior rankings.
Very true we can't expect too much of her, she's still coming along very very nicely.
Naiktha's ITF profile lists M Limpus, G Stickler, N Pratt and S Barsacchi as her coaches. So yeah they're been doing a lot of work together. I'm pretty sure Nicole is the captain of the Australian Junior Fed Cup team as well.
Naiktha now has a WTA ranking! She's #979 after winning her first pro maindraw match as a wildcard at $25K Rockhampton last month beating Julia Moriarty 6-2 3-6 7-5. She lost to Bobusic in the next round.
She shares that spot of #979 with Lizette Cabrera and together they are the two youngest girls (and the only players under 15 years old) with a WTA ranking! Lizette is two days younger. Really exciting for both girls!
