Lauren Embree

I think Lauren Embree deserves her own thread!

Lauren Embree had a promising career as a junior, reaching the 6th position in the rankings, winning the Eddie Herr Championships in 2008 and playing the final of the Easter Bowl in 2008 and 2009.

Professionally, she won the ITF Wichita in 2008 and the ITF Fort Worth last year, both with $10,000 and played the 1st round of the French Open in 2009, after winning the American play-off.

However, she enrolled the University of Florida, where she helped the Gators to win four SEC titles and National Championships in 2011 and 2012. Also, she was the No. 1-ranked collegiate player in the USA in 2012.

Now, she is 22 and she's just turned professional as you can see in this article:

http://www.stack.com/2013/09/12/lauren-embree/

I hope she has an amazing career!!!! Finally, as curiosity, her favourite surface is red clay, which is a bit strange for Americans.

Re: Lauren Embree

Lauren starts her 2014 season playing the qualifies of three $25,000 ITFs on clay (her favourite surface) in Florida: Vero Beach, Port St. Lucie and Daytona Beach.

She's not in the qualies of Vero Beach... maybe she got a WC for the main draw or she's not ready yet to start the season?

Her twitter feeds mention a "setback" and a doctor's appointment. Not great signs - hope she is okay! A MDWC would make sense for her, as a Florida native & college player ...

Re: Lauren Embree

Isn't she the one who played Petrova at RG years ago? I hope she's developed some weapons because I remember she hit about 2 winners in the entire match.

Yes, she played Petrova in RG 2009.. But that was 5 years ago and since then she's been one of the most impressive college players. So, I think she has improved for sure.

Re: Lauren Embree

Lauren has earned the nickname "ice princess" for having nerves of steel.

I can't say she has developed a lot of weapons, so I hope she'll improve on that and have success as a pro.

Given her work ethic and consistency, I think she has potential to be a top 100 player.

That's good to hear! I think she can do lot of things if she keeps working and improving her game.

According to her Twitter she's having surgery... Any news on that? Such bad luck...
