I just saw this girl got a WC into the qualifying for Washington. She's only 14!

Does anyone know anything about her? Does she train in the US? It was such a pleasant surprise seeing her name in the draw.

I know nothing about her but want her to win more than anything. Hahaha Pame Valentini

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

Good try in her first WTA event
But she got her first WTA point

She must train in the United States. After all, she is one of Greece's most promising female players EVER, and is among the best U14 girls in the world, just a little behind Bencic, Ostapenko, Rychagova, Nefedova, and Konjuh . I think she has top 20 potential and I'm not joking at all

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

Article in Greek with a photo of Valentini:
Σε WTA η 14χρονη Γραμματικοπούλου!


Η Βαλεντίνη Γραμματικοπούλου έκανε χτες ένα μεγάλο μακροβούτι στη μέχρι τώρα τενιστική της σταδιοδρομία, λαμβάνοντας μέρος στα προκριματικά του Citi Open, τουρνουά $220,000 της WTA που διεξάγεται στην Washinghton και στάθηκε αρκετά καλά σε αγώνα που τελικά ηττήθηκε. Η 14χρονη Ελληνίδα αθλήτρια αντιμετώπισε την 11 χρόνια μεγαλύτερή της Αμερικανίδα Whitney Jones και στάθηκε αρκετά καλά, έχοντας μάλιστα 7 ευκαιρίες για break, από τις οποίες αξιοποίησε μόν τη μία γνωρίζοντας την ήττα με 6-2, 6-2 σε ένα παιχνίδι - εμπειρία για την Βαλεντίνη που διήρκησε 1 ώρα και 10 λεπτά και κάτω από αφόρητη ζέστη.

Στο ίδιο τουρνουά θα λάβει μέρος στο κυρίως ταμπλό και η Λένα Δανιηλίδου, η οποία θα αντιμετωπίσει στον 1ο γύρο την Βρετανή Heather Watson, ενώ στα διπλά με συμπαίκτρια την Ιταλίδα Alberta Brianti θα αναμετρηθούν με τις Craybas και Czink.



1/7 on BPs
She could've even won a set if she converted on some more BPs
Still, she's only 14 y.o.


Some biographical info about her-All I really know is that she's from Zakynthos island and she still lives there, but she probably recently moved to an American academy somewhere in Florida since she played in Washington DC

Seems like she could be a good player. Only 14. Will definitely keep an eye on her.

G4 Mexico:
R1: Valentini GRAMMATIKOPOULOU (GRE) defeated Samanta Elizabeth ZAMBRANO RENDON (MEX) 6-0 6-1
R2: Valentini GRAMMATIKOPOULOU (GRE) defeated Sarahi GARCIA CARRERA (MEX) (7) 6-1 6-1
QF: Valentini GRAMMATIKOPOULOU (GRE) defeated Camila FUENTES (USA) (2) 4-6 6-1 7-6(4)
SF: Valentini GRAMMATIKOPOULOU (GRE) defeated Rima ASATRIAN (USA) 6-2 7-5
F: Alejandra CISNEROS (MEX) (1) defeated Valentini GRAMMATIKOPOULOU (GRE) 5-7 0-2 Retired


She could've won her first title, which would've been earlier than Despina . I hope it is not serious, but it's sad since she would've won the whole tournament

Also reached doubles QF

No info about the injury, but Cisneros is ITF #164 so it's amazing to see how she is beating players like that at just 14 years old

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

I really hope this girl is good. Those are great results, so sad to have to pull out of a final after being a set and a break up.

I wish her all the best luck.

Valentini reached the final of the G14 Nike Junior Tour Masters! Unfortunately she lost badly but to get as far as she did considering she needed a wildcard to get into the tournament is a huge achievement!
