Lesley Kerkhove



Hello! I finally remembered the name of this player I saw in the Orange Bowl last year

Her name is Lesley Kerkhove. I was pretty impressed from what I saw. Big groundstrokes and a big serve. Needs a bit of consistency. I don't really know what potential she has but didn't see a cheering thread for her so here it is!

Re: Lesley Kerkhove

As you can see on her site, she's rubbed elbows with many in the tennis world. (Mostly in Dutch tennis circles)

Few LESLEY KERKHOVE notes:

- Made a good impression on Dutch #1 Michaella Krajicek.

- Admires Roger Federer of ATP Tour.

- Admires Ana Ivanovic of WTA Tour.


My portion of introducing her can only go as far as words on your screen.

Those budding fans out there of Lesley must delve onto her website and browse the albums, agendas, photos, videos, etc.

Might I recommend viewing this. (Will certainly draw interest from Russian parties with such music )

Nice win! Little chance to beat Pavlyuchenkova I'm afraid, but good luck!

Re: Lesley Kerkhove

I play at the same club as Lesley does. And I have the same coach as Lesley.
In Holland she really is a big upcoming talent and I wish her all the goods!
Lesley, if you see this...good luck! (again) and I'll soon visit one of your matches.

Re: Lesley Kerkhove

She was watching Rus' first round match at AO juniors. I really thought she was older than 16 already - I've seen her name around a bit. Nice to see she's doing well though - god knows, NL need some up and coming players (on both sides of tennis).

Well, she lost to Nastya P. Was up a break in each set. Good fight though

7-6 6-3

Re: Lesley Kerkhove

Yeah, she lost, but she fought well (judging from the score). That's not such a shame. She did lose to the top see.

Re: Lesley Kerkhove

Lesley has the same ITF ranking as Arantxa had this time last year and Lesley is one year younger. Hope she can progress this year like Arantxa did last year.
Last time I saw Lesley play was in 2005, at age 13. She was a smart player then. But what I understand from the match reports in Australia she has developed her game and is now quite a big hitter. Smart and big hitter sounds promising. She's one of the few Dutch junior players who gives 100% for tennis.
