Goddess in training: Despina Papamichail

Forget the fact that Despina Papamichail is the next Daniilidou. Shes gonna be better. She just turned 15 in February, and already she has a WTA ranking of 1000. Her career high is 990. She is the number 7 ranked junior in the u16 division in Europe, and remember she JUST turned 15! She is 4-3 in her WTA career. She only played 3 tournaments in her life. She reached the QFs in Porto Rafti 10k, the 2nd round in Goudi 10k, and the 2nd qualifying round in Patras 50k, where she lost to the top seed. Also, she kind of looks like Justine Henin, when Henin had the reddish-brownish hair.

Re: Despina Papamichail

Looks like Henin? Poor girl Sorry my friend but there is only one Eleni Daniilidou in the world and she's not only a very talented player and fun to watch but also one of the most gorgeous female players on the tour. So no way there ever gonna be a new Daniilidou

That's great but it doesn't mean that she'll do great in the future. If she stays injury free she has a chance. Many very promising youngsters play below expectations once they compete in wta/atp tournaments. I wish your compatriot all the best but Eleni is Eleni and she's the one we are focused on

Re: Despina Papamichail

She should. I dont think she plays well on clay. W/Greeks, clay court talent is a toss-up. She may end up in the USA. I think that she may go to France for some reason.

stay focused on eleni?why?what has she done lately to be proud of?nothing!!!
such a talent but....still keep making the wrong decisions etc etc!!!
she needs to try really hard from now on...she needs a wake up call...i really like her and i want her to do well...oh and people stop saying that she will do better next time...etc etc and try to praise her...these kinds of comments are not doing anything...she needs to wake up and see what the reality is!!!!she is out of the top 100 again...
she needs to get a good team around her...good coach and not rely on jaz or whomever!!!she needs a good personal trainer and whatever else she might needs in order to get her where she belongs!!!

i am with u...thats why i mentioned that she needs to get to an academy abroad...yes she is a talented young girl but she needs to make her next move now!!!despina if u r reading this think what u want...move from greece...look at sharapova!!!she moved to the us and more specific to one of the best tennis academy and look where she is now!!!

but the problem is that in greece parents dont really want their kids to move from home...another thing is that everyone is thinking about university and how to get a place in one of them...so after a certain age they dont care about sports etc...(hope u know what i mean).
she is very talented (despoina) and her ranking says a lot....so if she really want to do something with her talent then she better move now...while she is still young!!!it will be for the best

Re: Despina Papamichail

She lost in R1 of Thessaloniki 10k tgo (1)Meddens 62 60. I thought she would do better. Maybe shes just not a clay court player, like Lena.

Re: Despina Papamichail

Despina qualified for the U16 Masters, and is the 4th seed. Eleni Kordolaimi, and Irini Papageorgiou also qualified.
