I think Lauren Embree deserves her own thread!
Lauren Embree had a promising career as a junior, reaching the 6th position in the rankings, winning the Eddie Herr Championships in 2008 and playing the final of the Easter Bowl in 2008 and 2009.
Professionally, she won the ITF Wichita in 2008 and the ITF Fort Worth last year, both with $10,000 and played the 1st round of the French Open in 2009, after winning the American play-off.
However, she enrolled the University of Florida, where she helped the Gators to win four SEC titles and National Championships in 2011 and 2012. Also, she was the No. 1-ranked collegiate player in the USA in 2012.
Now, she is 22 and she's just turned professional as you can see in this article:
I hope she has an amazing career!!!! Finally, as curiosity, her favourite surface is red clay, which is a bit strange for Americans.
