Petra Granic

Well, this girl just played her first ever 10k in Solin and made QF! From qualification! Since she is still just 15 (born in 1998) that is pretty promising! One ambitious interview from her (that is how I remembered) from last year!
http://www.slobodnadalmacija.hr/Teni...3/Default.aspx

Btw, she is only 447th at junior list (played 4 tournaments, won 1). But already, when 1995. year got delete she will be much better. But also, when she starts to play more I don't doubt she can be very successful. With this potential she showed! It will be very interesting to follow next weeks at Croatian futures!

Re: Petra Granic

From this interview, her coach compares her game to Ana Konjuh!
Also, Petra beat 761st in the world (and 5th seed in Solin 10k) Dea Herdzelas 7-5 6-4. Later she lost 2nd seed Tereza Malikova (who is at the moment at career high 407th) 6-2 6-4 which is definitely ok fight for such unexperienced player.

Re: Petra Granic

Glad you opened thread for her because I would have otherwise do it now.

She is the name to watch out for in the future!

And she didn't need to be cause guess what?? She got a WC!
Well, difficult first round against much more experienced (over 10 years older) Polona Rebersak (currently WTA 723rd with career high at 499th)! If she somehow manages to win first round I think she has good chances for another QF! It would be nice to see! Anyway, good luck Petra!

Re: Petra Granic

^ Gorgeous. Looks much older than 15.

She needs to unpurse her lips, though

And I really hope that's not a tattoo on the back of lower arm

This is her second tournament with points for her. One more and she'll get her first pro ranking.

Mistake..."next" was Barbora Krejickova, first seed. Unfortunately, Petra lost 6-3 6-0. Well, I believe she offered decent fight in first set. Since in front of Petra is (I hope) great junior career next season, this is really valuable experience for her. But as already second 10k QF, this is really very good result at senior tour for her. Hope it will boost her confidence for junior tour next year.
