Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

Well done Valentini! I'm so proud of her!

Hopefully in 2012 she starts improving in U18 ITF tournaments

I think her goal should be to just keep improving her ranking (IIRC she's in the 700s. I'm too lazy to check though )

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

Last ITF junior events:
-R32 singles and R16 doubles at G4 in USA.
-R64 singles and R16 doubles at G4 in USA.
-R16 singles and R16 doubles at G4 in USA.

And I checked and her ranking is 792, with nothing to defend until May

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

Won the second round 6-1 ret, but then only won three games in the QF against the top seed and world #123
No idea what that girl was doing playing a G4 in the first place

Also reached the doubles QF here

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

Valentini this week at a G3 in Costa Rica:
Singles:
QR1: (2) Grammatikopoulou GRE vs. BYE
QR2: (2) Grammatikopoulou GRE d. Linares VEN (#810) 6-2 6-0
QR3: (2) Grammatikopoulou GRE d. Navarro Oliva MEX (#967) 6-2 6-2
R1: (Q) Grammatikopoulou GRE d. (1) Brady USA (#47) 2-6 7-6 6-3
R2: (Q) Grammatikopoulou GRE d. Cancini VEN (#504) 6-4 6-3
QF: (Q) Grammatikopoulou GRE d. (7) Runglerdkriangkrai THA (#265) 6-3 6-1
SF: (Q) Grammatikopoulou GRE d. McAdoo USA (#457) 6-3 6-2
F: (2) Julia Elbaba USA (#126) d. (Q) Valentini Grammatikopoulou GRE 3-6 6-3 6-4
Great week
Shame about the final. She was probably tired from the long week she had and she had to play qualies too . She's now 0-2 in ITF junior finals after winning the first set in both of them. She really should've won that G4 in Mexico last year as she had to retire when she was leading by a set and a break . But another great week and this puts her in the top 310 and she will be the #1 Greek junior . She may not hold that position for long though as Kairi will be right behind her, but just amazing progress so far this year and she's still barely played! I was starting to doubt her last year after how poorly she played in those junior tournaments in the US but then she played well in the Nike Junior World Championships and Orange Bowl and now this year she has continued her good form . I'm not sure what her next tournament is but it would be pretty cool if she comes to Greece to play the 10K's in April on Crete, although it seems pretty unlikely since she's now based in the US. I definitely think she should have goals to crack the top 100 this year and get a WTA ranking, and she may crack the top 100 pretty soon, so maybe even higher in the junior rankings
Lost doubles R1. She would do better in doubles I guess if she had some better partners
Photo from Costa Rica:

And a photo from the Tim Essone U14 last year, where Valentini won the title and was featured on this year's tournament advertisement poster:

And from WTA Washington DC last year:

EDIT-I see that her next tournament will be a G4 in Turkey the week of 2 April . So I guess she will skip the first Greek 10K and play that in Turkey and then from there go to Greece to visit her family, spend Easter there, and maybe play a 10K or two . I also see that there are many G2 and G3 tournaments in Europe in April, May, and June and really nothing big in the Americas so maybe she might even play junior RG and Wimbledon . But that might be too early for her. No matter where she plays, I am very confident about her future and I have a feeling its going to be a fun year in this thread

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

G2 Austria:
-Lost R32 singles to Komardina, a tough opponent . Reached doubles QF
G2 Austria:
-Lost R16 singles to Kudermatova, a tough opponent who recently reached the semis of a 25K . Lost R16 doubles
G2 Germany:
-Qualified for singles and lost in R16 7-5 in the third to Rodriguez (Mexico, #62 juniors), but beat Zhao (Canada, #25 juniors, #585 WTA) in R32 . Lost R16 doubles though

Valentini's junior ranking is now up at #234 and I think there's a good shot she can reach at least the top 100 by the end of the year, she just needs some luckier draws

Re: Vamos Valentini Grammatikopoulou!! Cheering thread!

Last week Valentini played a G2 in the Netherlands, where she reached the quarterfinals. This week she played a G1 in Germany where she qualified with ease. Unfortunately she lost in the first round of the main draw to 14th seeded Bernarda Pera of Croatia (Junior #88, WTA #696) in 3 sets . But once again she has shown how much potential she has . In the same tournament, Valentini reached the doubles QF with Akkerman of Canada. Unfortunately they lost in the STB against the #6 seeded team, but still QF of a G1 is great, even if it is doubles. I bet Valentini could do much better in doubles if she plays with better players, since it seems that she always plays with mediocre ones. Anyways, Valentini is currently at a junior career-high ranking of 204 and she will move up a few more spots next week
