Cool Özlem Uslu

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! GL!

So young and naive

I'm sure Boochie was nice with the kids, though

Re: Özlem Uslu

Ozlem was back to vulturing Middle Eastern tournies this week, played G5 Iran Junior Championship in Urmia (the city of my ancestors )

She was the top seed there, sadly lost in SF to fellow Turk 4th seed Doga Turkmen, 1-6 5-7

Turkmen will turn 15 in a month, she won the title, straight-setting the 2nd seed in the final.


Ozlem reached a CHR of 607 2 weeks ago, should break into the Top 600 after USO

Day 2:






Solid stuff! Looks like Turkey has sth to look forward to with a bunch of promising teenagers, which is exciting stuff.

Facing USA, who have won their first 2 ties like them (and 6-0 in matches so far), tomorrow to make the SFs, GL!

Day 3:






Sadly, this result was kinda expected

But good news: I forgot that the format is not the one of the pro year-end masters, actually the first 2 teams of each group are moving to the final draw, which means Turkey are!



GL girls, I think this one is winnable!

Day 4:






This tie was a push fest Both Ozlem and leftie Aysegul have pretty nice groundies (Ozlem especially) which they hit carefully which is quite nice actually, but it's a bit too much and they seem to be lacking a killing shot.
