Smile Abigail Desiatnikov

Abby was born on January 22, 2001 in Cleveland, but she lives in Atlanta now. She started playing tennis at 3 only, and played her very first tournaments at 6. Her listed coaches are her dad Evgeniy, and Rick Shy.

She won U12 Orange Bowl in 2012, beating some familiar names on her way to the title - namely: Leonie Kung in R2 (2 & 4), Irina Cantos Siemers in R4 (6-1 3-0 ret.), Jovana Vukovic in QF (7-5 6-1), Nada Dimovska in SF (4 & 3), and Dayana Yastremska (who is 8 months older, and now is in the junior Top 50) 7-5 7-5 in the final.
She had made the SFs of U12 Eddie Herr two weeks before - beating Vitalia Stamat 0 & 1 in R1, Nada Dimovska 3 & 4 in R2, Mihaela Lorena Marculescu 4 & 2 in R3, Dayana Yastremska 2 & 4 in QF, before falling to Ellie Douglas in SF, 1 & 3 (she double-breadsticked at the U14 USTA National Winter Championships a month later though ).

In 2013, she made the SFs at U14 Orange Bowl (with straight-set wins over Rosnowska in R1, Coppoc in R2, T. Pieri in R4), lost a big fight against Claire Liu in SF, 6-4 6-7(1) 3-6.

Last year, she played her first G18s, and made 2 G18 finals: at G5 ITF Waco (she lost to Kylie McKenzie in the final, 2 & 0 ) and at G4 Atlanta ITF (she lost to Kennedy Shaffer in the final, 2-6 6-7(8) ).
She got wins over Raquel Pedraza and Alexandra Sanford, played 2 crazy matches against Kayla Day (won the first one, 7-5 6-7(8) 6-4 ; lost the 2nd one, 7-5 3-6 6-7(7) ), took a set off Katherine Sebov, pushed Anna Kalinskaya to 5-5 in a set, etc...
She had a rather disappointing tournament at U14 Les Petits As at the beginning of the year though - beat Simona Waltert 2-6 7-6(5) 6-2 in R1, and Daria Solovyeva 7-5 7-5 in R2, but got stopped by Ulyana Shirokova in R3, 4 & 2... :-/
She only played the U18 OB last year, but got thrashed by Pospelova in R1, 0 & 1.

This year, she's played only G18s and pro tournaments - except for U16 USTA National Championships in August, that she won (her only singles title this year), beating (15)Whitney Osuigwe in a 3rd set TB in the final.
Her winning the U16 National Champs awarded her a MDWC at Jr USO, that was her big Slam debuts. Sadly she lost to Viktoria Kuzmova (who made the SFs of Wimbledon this year) in R1, 2 & 3.

She's got a few good wins this year - a 1 & 3 win over Maria Paula Torres in R1 of a Brazilian GA; a R1 3 & 2 win over Ali Collins, followed by a R2 7-6(0) 6-4 win over Deria Nur Haliza at the G1 USO warm-up in Maryland (she lost 4-6 5-7 to Amanda Anisimova in R3); she played a close match against Jacqueline Cako at 25K Raleigh qualies (lost 3-6 6-1 5-7 ).

This week, she's playing G1 Jerry Simmons Pan American Closed ITF Championships in Tulsa! She beat Zoe Hitt 3 & 1 in R1, and (5)Jade Lewis (#78) 1-6 6-4 7-6(3) in R2 today
She will face fellow 2001 born and US girl Natasha Subhash in R3 tomorrow

She's #425 this week, but reached a CHR of 278 in March.

GL to Abby this week, and in all her future tournaments!

Re: Abigail Desiatnikov

Well, Kayla continued her good form and snatched the title yesterday, routining 9th seed Kelly Chen in the final.

Abby is the only girl who pushed her this week, she was the only girl to take a set off her - in all her other matches, Kayla never dropped more than 5 games!

Re: Abigail Desiatnikov

Abby through to R3 as she just beat Eugenia Ganga 7-6(1) 6-0 in R2

Meltdown alert in the 1st set, as she went from 5-2* to 5-6* but she was merciless after that.

Taking advantage of her luck: 4th seed Fanny Stollar retired early in her R1 match, so she faced Eugenia instead

Re: Abigail Desiatnikov

Abby got routined by Amanda in QF today, 3 & 2

Too bad this match wasn't on the streamed central court!

Still a very nice week for Abby
