Sophie Ferguson

A thread for this up and comer.

She keeps improving and her results keep coming! Good win over Hsieh - who's in terrible form, but hey Aussie girls are usually good at playing people back into form! Running Gadjosova so close a week back was great too

She seems to be a junior with some true grit. I saw her a year ago and was impressed that when things get tough she doesn't hang her head or go for ridiculous shots.

Will she get the French Wildcard

Go Sophie

The problem with sophie is she is she cana nd does hi every shot, but doesnt hav e particular weapon to just finish the points at will. She does mix it up very well tho with a versatile single handed backhand, and seems to play the right shots instead of just going "for ridiculous shots" when things arent going her way. It will be interesting to see how far she will go, but im sure she can make the top 150..

oh and a side note - i have noticed she is getting stronger esp since the first time i saw her play...she looks more muscled and has improved her serve too...

it will be interesting to see what happens with daniella dominikovic. this girl is loaded with talent and has not proven much of herself at international level other than a few god performances in doubles with evie. interesting that she won the sydney hardcourt champ's last year over dubravka cupac 6-4 6-2 but she hasnt done much since.

Great result in Japan. Anyone know where her ranking might be @ this time as her points won't be put in till next week.

When I first saw Sophie I knew she had the talent but back then (18 months ago) she was far too slight and not nearly as powerful as the other girls. It was just a matter of maturing physically.

She's 18 now, and has developed a stronger frame and that is now paying off. She has always been the type of player where you can tell she will keep getting better with experience and age...her game needs time to mature. She's got a great work ethic and now with a top 300 (or thereabouts) ranking, she's on the right path!

I've only seen her once, at the Australian Open this year when she lost to Lindsay Lee-Waters (3-6 1-6). Don't remember much about the match, except that she showed plenty of passion. Very vocal. But easily frustrated.

Also saw her in Oz open and she looks quite good but alot of her game play will Mature with age and experience

not sure where she has gone too . . . . was doing well in Japan, maybe a week off to relax or to French juniors (if she is young enough)
