[Queen] Ludmilla Samsonova

Luda just won her first pro title in Rome. She definitely deserves a thread.
1998. She was born in Russia but lives and trains in Italy since she was just 1 y.o. Heavy and powerful shots. She is definitely one of the biggest hopes for Italian tennis.

Re: [Queen] Ludmilla Samsonova

OMG If I'm not wrong, this was her first tournament as a pro!
She also reached the final in Torneo Avvenire

Re: [Queen] Ludmilla Samsonova

that's quite impressive indeed
we need badly more young players to rise because we have 0 competitive players after Camila
what happened to Moratelli?

She sucks

Concerning Luda, I watched her in the Avvenire final and she was clearly the best prospect. She lost only because of the lack of experience against a pusher (Payola)

Huge FH and service. She reminded me Ivanovic's FH sometimes

Actually a big talent.

Re: [Queen] Ludmilla Samsonova

Samsonova and Pieri are our best prospects, I really hope they can keep progressing this way

Re: [Queen] Ludmilla Samsonova

Paolini is a good one. She lost 4-5 months this year but she was already doing good things: winning 10ks, making 50k QF, having good wins left and right..
About the others, beside Pieri there aren't some really good hopes. Maybe Pairone, but she is injured since basically a whole year, so who knows.

Queen Ludmilla and Tatiana >>

Re: [Queen] Ludmilla Samsonova

But she is still 15. But I consider Ludmilla a bigger hope TBH, considering her body will grow up with time and nowadays power tennis >>>> smart tennis.

sì, purtroppo la Pieri è piccola e difficilmente crescerà visto che anche i genitori non sono alti, però da quel poco che ho visto e da quello che ho letto è una giocatrice difensiva/geometrica, quindi magari arriva nonostante non abbia un gran fisico...

la Samsonova non l'ho mi vista giocare...però dalle foto mi sembra già sopra 1.70 con un fisico da giocatrice dell'est e l'hanno descritta come giocatrice servizio e diritto

a me onestamente piace molto anche la Matteucci, serve bene, buona velocità di braccio, gioco davvero molto vario, non ha un gioco facile, quindi ci metterà più tempo a trovare i pezzi...
