Katie Swan

Katie, one of our top '99 girls, has won her first itf junior title, a doubles title in a grade 5 in South America. She made the quarterfinal in singles. This should see her ranking into the 800s. Well done Katie!

Re: Katie Swan

Katie made the final of a grade 4 in singles and doubles in Central America but suffered a collapsed lung in the doubles final. Apparently she was rushed to the hospital. I admit to not knowing an awful lot about collapsed lungs, but I read up on it and apparently it isn't too serious. Either way, she and her family must've been absolutely terrified. I wish her a speedy recovery and hope she can move on from this.

Re: Katie Swan

Goodness.

It sounds serious to me. Where did you find that?

Re: Katie Swan

I dunno if I'm exhibiting a lapse in taste in posting this, it's not exactly on topic, but it was tweeted yesterday, and it's funny (at least I think so): https://twitter.com/Katieswan99/stat...35921238872067

This is our Katie Swan, isn't it?

Re: Katie Swan






She's pretty tall for her age, good mover too.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Re: Katie Swan

Katie makes her return today (possibly, depending on selection) at the World Junior Tennis Finals: http://itfjuniors.tournamentsoftware...25DD2B7&tid=22

Re: Katie Swan

Katie is into the quarterfinal of a grade 4 event in Texas, where she beat the #8 seed in straight sets. I accidentally posted Katie's results in the thread dedicated to other girls born in 1999. Thanks Embittered for calling me out on it.

Re: Katie Swan

Through to the semis after her opponent retired while down a set. I would love Katie to make the final (obviously) because, if she does, she could face CiCi Bellis, arguably the best '99 girl in the world.

Re: Katie Swan

Katie lost in the semis 64 63. Still a good week, it was tougher than most grade 4 events.

Oh, could have been better, then.

EDIT: this is more convincing.
