Talking Jessika Ponchet

New in top 500, so I think it is good thing to create her topic
Jessika Ponchet is 20 years old (born 26sept 1996), and she will be at her best ranking on next monday around #455.
She is having a great season after being injured during 8 months last year (she broke ligaments in december 2014). She is mostly playing in Spain because she is leaving near the border. She has an attack game, and prefers to play on hard but for now it is mostly clay (because Spain).
She just won Benicarlo past week (won over seed 1 Carreras 60 76 in the final), but it's not her only result of the year. In may, she made the final of 10,000$ Monzon (Hard) losing in final 4&4 against seed 1 Bouzkova ; in july she won 2 10,000$ on clay (Gexto and El Espinar), and 2 weeks ago she lost in final of Vinaros 10,000$ on clay, against seed 3 Gamiz 16 61 64.
Her goal for 2017 is top 200. She said that she finds french player like Garcia&Mladenovic very inspiring, here the interview (in French): Jessika Ponchet : "J?espère monter dans le top 200" | Fédération Française de Tennis

GL Jess!

Re: Jessika Ponchet

She has one of the weirdest looking techniques on tour I think, especially the fh.

Can we please talk about Jessika going all the way from qualies to 60k Granby semis, without losing a set if I'm not mistaken? Good luck in the semis tomorrow!

I'm so happy for her! Seems like QRG she is on good wave. I saw her there and I have to admit that I really want to see her more often. She has a real atypical game.

Re: Jessika Ponchet

Sorry, I meant atypical technic, not game. She has an agressive game, a little like Caroline or Kristina. But she still needs to improve her serve.
But for her technic, she has no preparation at all. Sadly there is no video online, but I have some pics of RG, let me check if some can be interesting.

Re: Jessika Ponchet

Jess is getting closer and closer from top 300, beating some strong player around 150-250WTA. I really hope she will make it, I would love to see her in Melbourne Q, even if it's still very far for her.

Re: Jessika Ponchet

Me too, I am really curious about her. She has made strides this year, when girls like Ferro have really flopped.

Re: Jessika Ponchet

She is in the semis of 60k Saguenay! She seems to love Canada... More points for her and she is now well inside the top 300! Am I wrong to think she should be in contention for a Australian Open WC?
I mean who else... I really only see Georges, who has been playing well lately. Tessah is not playing, Paquet, Reix and Hesse have been sucking.

Re: Jessika Ponchet

Semi-final (may be more) again in Toronto.
She is in great form and now only 1 point behind Chloe Paquet in the ranking.

I hope you are right about wc. I am so happy she is finally happening! Look forward seeing her higher and mostly in GS!

Re: Jessika Ponchet

She really does have a weird looking game, but seems pretty effective?
She got a MDWC for 125k Limoges! And if she keeps this up, she could def be in the running for the AUS, imo.
