She seems at least as promising as Selin!
She's around 6 months younger than her (born March 11, 2004) and is 31-4 so far this year...
She's won 4 singles titles so far this year: the first edition of the U14 ITF/Tennis Europe Development Championships, without dropping a set, thrashing the top and 3rd seeds on her way to the title in March (she then was runner-up of the second edition the week after); a Cat. 3 G14 in Istanbul in June, without dropping a set either (and she made the semis of the Cat. 3 G16 there the week after, got routined 4 & 3 by Selin in SF
); and these last 2 weeks, she's swept the 2 G5s in Jordan (didn't drop a set in the first one but Selin, who she was supposed to face in the final, had to retire with a shoulder injury at 2-3 in the first set... too bad, as it would have been a super interesting match!
; in the one she upset the top 2 seeds, which are ranked around #500 and #400
), her very first G18 titles!
Her title last week has made her jump up to a new CHR of 864
(+482) this week, and she will make another big jump in next week's new rankings
Looking forward to seeing how she does in the stronger U14 tournaments now, and also how the rivalry against Selin evolves!
