Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

and speaking of despoina and training etc etc...why doesnt she move abroad?is there any reason to stay in greece?why other players go abroad or even go to more tournaments and our players stay in greece for whatever reason?even gerasimou should have gone to australia but she didnt.its sad to have talented players and only stay in greece and go to itf matches.

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

Despina got another career-high rank! She's now #945 . She will lose a lot of points if she doesn't play foreign tournaments in March. She did really good for Greece this weekend in the U16 European winter cup.

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

And another career-high rank for Despina. She is now #941. In doubles, however, her rank dropped from 1001 to 1005. It's okay, though

Despina will be back in action on the ITF women's circuit in two weeks, as she is currently in qualifying in a 10k in Israel and a 10k in Egypt. She will most likely get moved up into the main draw anyways, and it will be a good way for her to rise her rank, having nothing to defend that week. However, March will be a very tough match for her, as she has 8 points to defend, and she only has 14 in total

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

As I mentioned before, March will be a very diffucult month for Despina in terms of defending points. She will play next week in a 10k in Israel in the main draw. However, she withdrew from the tournament in Egypt the following week, and then the week of the 16th she is not on any list. She had opportunities in GBR in January, but the draws were bad for her

Since the Greek March ITF's won't be held this year, it muct be tough for Despina to miss school and stuff
She has 8 points to defend, so a final in the Israeli tournament will get her there. That is unlikely, so hopefully she can play another ITF towards the end of March
It will be sad that these Greek girls won't have the opportunity to play in ITF's this Spring. The men's May tournaments haven't been added yet either, even though the national federation's website has them added

On the postitive side, regardless of how Despina does this month, she will stay ranked
She has nothing to defend from April until September, so it will be a great chance for Despina to breakthrough. She has no junior(u-18) points to defend until August
I think she gave up on u-16's as she was year end #3 as a 15 year old, and she hasn't played anymore tournaments and is still #3

It's nice that she is making that transition from u-16 to u-18
Now she only has 2 tours to focus on, plus the Greek national ones. Anyways, Pame Despina!!

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

Despina beat Rapoport easily, 6-1 6-2
Next up is (5)Vivienne Vierin of Italy

Pame Despina!!!! You have 6 more points to defend this month!

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

Despina lost 6-4 6-2
I hope she learns from this loss, as Vierin is much more experienced. I hope that she realizes that she still has 6 points to defend this month, and she will play a tournament towards the end of the month.

Despina

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

Despina got a new career-high rank for Despina again! #930
That rank will unfortuantely fall, as she has 6 points left to defend this month, and she isn't playing for the next two weeks
Hopefully she'll play the Turkish ITF's in April/May

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

In the final qualies round, Despina destroyed top seeded Yang 6-1 6-2
A great win for Despina, as Yang is one of the best girls from the class, already ranked 203 in ITF U18
Despina
In R64, Despina will face Ksenia Gospodinova, an unseeded Russian. The winner of that match will take on 9th seeded Malou Ejdesgaard of Denmark in R32

PAME DESPINA!!!!!! :b ounce:

*The doubles draw hasn't been released yet

Re: Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

26 16
Despina must've been exhausted
Despina
She'll play another G1 next week
Also, her WTA ranking should move up again, as she has committed to a Turkish ITF
