Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

Kristina comfortably won her first match 61 64 against Lazareva (185th) who is 3 years older than her. She needed 1h30 though, the first set was perfect, she didn't face any BPs. She struggled a bit more in the 2nd as she got broken twice. I hope she won't face any lapses of concentration in the next rounds.
Congrats Kristina .

Nice win against an older and perhaps more experienced players. Scoreline still looks nice.

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

Kristina had to fight a bit more to take out qualifier Isabella Shinikova (outside of top 200), she won 62 75 but in 1h10 only. The match got interrupted by the rain in the middle of second set, she may have troubles to find her concentration afterwards. Still she is showing consistency and that's all we are asking for! I hope she improves her form though, she can surely do better than that.

Next match will be more interesting, either Adeline Gonçalvès who has a pretty big experience in juniors and ITFs or Laura Berlinecke who took out Zarina Diyas. Kristina is also in SF in doubles .

Cmon!

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

Kristina reaches SF at home ! She struggled a bit more today winning 63 76 against Adeline, but I think this is pretty good considering how impressive her opponent was in the early rounds. She has more experience than Kristina as well. So this time, I'm truely satisfied!

Kiki should move forward a bit more with this good run. But I really hope she can have a first big upset of the year in next round, if she gets to play Ana Bogdan (n°10). I like her consistency, but beating top 100/200 girls is nothing spectacular for her at this point. Allez Kristina, fight for it!

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

I have the honor to tell you that Kristina finally scored her first top 10 win & reaches her first final of the year, I am so proud of her!!!!!

She defeated Ana Bogdan 75 67 75 in 3h30, such a marathon that she managed to win. I'm really glad this time she managed to hold her nerves & to survive physically to such a long match. I have to say this is the longest one I have ever seen!
She will play against Klaudia Boczova in final who cruised during the whole week. No matter the result, this week has been truely amazing for her. Congrats Kristina, get some rest & take the title!!!!

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

Kristina sadly had not enough energy to win, she lost 57 16 against Boczova. Her serve was completely off today. No way she could win with less than 50% of first serves. She also lost the double final. Great week still !

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

Kristina is still in Istres draw, another G2 tournament. I wish she had withdrawn but she surely feels capable of winning some matches there.
She will face the most dangerous unseeded player in R1 : Laura Robson who pushed Ana Bogdan to her limits last week. Kristina will have to make her experience prevail ... Allez Kiki!

Kristina enters top 50 this week at the 50th rank. All that before she turns 15 . Congrats on this first achievement ... and I'm sure it's only the beginning!

She is 259th in the juniors rank, which is quite impressive for such a young girl.
Kristina is very very tall for her age (more than 1m75) and she is known to hit amazing forehands. One of my friends who saw her playing compared her game to Mary's !!!

Good luck in doubles with Amandine (another 1993 player).

Yes Kristina is the favourite to take the title in the French Championships. If she reaches at least the last step, we will have a chance to see her as the FFT uploads all the finals.
But I have just discovered that the tournament is public and free. As I will be in holidays, I will try to come and watch her.

I've always wondered who that girl in your avatar was !!

Nice to get more info. I don't believe she's only weighs 60kg at 1,82m though.

But dayum, she is tall. Hopefully, I'll get to see her on my tv to see what kind of game she really has.

I must say I admire your dedication to this tennis player.

All your enthousiasm has peaked my curiosity. I wish I could see a match of hers. So she's just a power player? what is her game like?

Thanks! I'm really happy that I aroused your curiosity because she really deserves to be known! She caught my attention by her origins, the fact that she was very promising in her U14 tournaments & also her height! So I decided to follow the evolution of her carrier and it's going pretty nicely . I always liked to find new talents, but Kristina immediately got me in her camp. This is probably because she reminds me of Mary in her personality.

Kristina is more of a hard hitter than a crafty player as Léolia Jeanjean is (another rising star in France, born in 1995), this is obviously due to her physical aptitudes. Her serve is her biggest asset I would say & then probably her forehand that can go extremely fast. I like the fact that beyond those qualities, she tries to construct points. But it's also her problem, sometimes she doesn't take enough risks IMO. She uses more her power to defend and surprise her opponent I would say. She is not like Gavrilova or Orlik the mini ballbashers-replicas of Sharapova.
I have to say that I only saw her twice, so I can't say much ^^.

I think I posted it already but this video is a little summary of her final of the French Championships (U14) against Vernet. She was a bit tense but there are some good points. http://www.fft.fr/Championnats-de-Fr...deo13ans-f.htm

Thanks for having posted here!

Re: Kristina Mladenovic !!!!!

Thanks for the vid. Very engaging personality. Seems a bit shy.

I chose to read the whole thread before watching it and posting my second comment. (I should have watched it first maybe! )

It's good that she likes to construct points. However, for her height, I find her a bit too skinny. Hopefully she will put more muscle on her frame, so she can last through long matches (like Sharapova had to do too). It's interesting that the players she likes are Sharapova and Golovin.

Let's hope she can be like Mary Pierce and win Roland Garos. Can she also put topspin on her FH though? In that vid, she seems to hit more flat and hard ? At least she looks confortable on clay. I wonder what her game will look like on grass...

Anyhow, I might have to keep an eye on this player through your thread (as you well know, we barely get any tennis coverage in Canada. She probably won't be on my tv for a looooooong time! ). So keep the updates coming.
