Claudia CIANCI (POR) 6-4 6-3 Erika HENDSEL (EST) 
That was unexpected.
you beat me
But in hindsight, it might just be claudias tournament. She is in semis of dubs, beating top seeds in straight sets in the second round and we often forget erika is just 14. I do think its greak that shes committing to the tour though. By the time she turns 15, her ranking might be better then anetts when she was 15. What was anetts ranking when she was 15???

Yeah, maybe also Erika is a bit tired, she has played a number of tournaments in a row already. She has a whole year to gain more points
I think Anett was around top 100-120 when she turned 15. I started to follow her results more closely after she won that 10k in Tallinn and I remember she was on the verge of top 100 that time. From Anett's thread: posted by Meelis on Feb 28th, 2011 - "She is up 28 places in ranks this week. New career high at #71". That was after the G2 final in Lithuania.
Erika's next event (if she doesn't pull out of that one) is G4 Gydnia Cup in Poland. Tatja is also playing there so they might play dubs. Is now only 22 places away from Tatja (but Tatja has a tournament this week)
I think Erika may be taking some time off tennis as she has pulled out of the G4 Riga Open
The entry list for AOTK Twiga comes out in 4 days and I don't think she'll be on it
That may not be a bad thing though, as she is only 14
Erika has not been playing Juniors because she has been playing 16U
Last week she played a big tournament in Italy as 4th seed and made the 3rd round
As top seeds she in doubles, her and her partner got a BYE Round 1 but they lost to their first opponents in round 2
This week she is playing the biggest 16s tournament of the year and is again 4th seed
She has a Q/LL first round and then an Italian or another Q/LL
Lets hope she can produce something big
Erika is also playing the week after in a Category 2 in Italy
