Helene Pellicano

I figured I'd start an Thread for Helene, even though it might be still an bit early.

Helene Pellicano is currently the #5 U-14 Player in Tennis Europe at an career high at the moment, Helene Pellicano is one of the current rising stars player coming out of Malta & seem too be a very promising bright prospect, for sure. I believe she only 13 yr old and she Train at Luca Amoretti. Brett & Lavazza tennis Academy, so far she hasn't played any 18&U Junior events but has made big impact on the 14&U & 16&U events. I hoping she can be an big name in the future for Malta tennis on the WTA Tour in the long run

Re: Helene Pellicano

Heleeeene !


Great year for her, it would be amazing if a Malta player breaks through on the WTA tour !


Thank you for the thread Trey !


Just a question, someone knows her height ? (Because she seems little even if she is very young)

Re: Helene Pellicano

Helene made the final of G14 Sanchez-Casal Youth Cup this week.

She was the top seed there, got a solid win over 3rd seed Anastasia Tikhonova in SF, 7-6(0) 6-0, but fell to 4th seed Smaranda Corneanu in the final, 3 & 2.

Re: Helene Pellicano

Helene is through to final of the Tennis Europe Junior Masters in U14 cat.!

She is the 3rd seed there, beat Kamilla Rakhimova 4-6 6-1 6-4 yesterday and Oana Smaranda Corneanu (who slew top seed Pachkaleva yesterday) in SF today, 0-6 6-3 6-2

Final vs. 4th seed Marta Kostyuk tomorrow


Fun fact: out of the 8 girls taking part to the U14 Masters, 6 girls were born in 2001 and only 2 were born in 2002... And guess what, the two 2002 girls are in the final!

Re: Helene Pellicano

Helene won the final in a third set tiebreak

Should become U14 European #1 once 2001 girls are removed from the rankings at end of the year.

There are some videos of her from Eddie Herr last year.
