Danielle Collins

Thought it would be a good time to start a thread for recent UVA grad Danielle Collins! She had a very successful college career at Virginia including 2 NCAA singles championships.

She's now trying the pro circuit and won the title this week at the 25k Stillwater

Re: Danielle Collins

Love seeing Danielle give the pros a try, with this title she is already up to #423. She has a game that can translate well to the pro circuit, and if she plays a full schedule now, she should really fly up the ranks. Excited to see how this goes!

I have to say, she's the best 2x NCAA Singles champ that has a chance on the pro circuit (no offense to the pusher N. Gibbs). She just defeated former Bruins best players, Robin Anderson in R1 and then knocked off #2 Jennifer Brady in R2 to win her 5th match of the tournament.
Remember she won 8 matches in winning Stillwater 25k, earlier this month, so she has the stamina to do it again!!!

Next match in QF she will face off against Ohio's Di Lorenzo, which she should win. If she gets past Di Lorenzo, then she will probably play in SF against the toughest player remaining in the draw in last year's winner Rebecca Peterson, who I think will have no problem getting past Alize Lim.

Re: Danielle Collins

As I predicted Danielle defeated Di Lorenzo in QF 6-1, 7-5.

Her next match will be a tough one, as she will face last year's champion, #3 Rebecca Peterson in the SF's...

Re: Danielle Collins

Danielle is on the rise as she just knocked off the defending champion 6-2, 6-0!!!

Last month she won her first 25k, this month I have to favor her over Kayla Day in the finals to win her first 50k...

Re: Danielle Collins

This fall has been a great start for Danielle!!! First big points earned in September, so she has a good 9 months of 2017 to earn and move wayyyy up!

Re: Danielle Collins

Danielle is into the finals of the 60k in Charleston against Brengle

Her ranking should be good enough to get into Wimbledon qualifying if she wants to play
