Re: Selin Lidya Sepken

In the final part of last year: she won a G5 in Istanbul on hard in October (she was the 8th seed, beat 16 yo 14th seed Mariya Poduraeva, who dragged top seed Manu in R3, 7-6(4) 5-7 7-6(5) in SF , and then 4th seed Ozlem Uslu 6-4 1-6 6-4 in the final ); then she made the QFs of big tournament held at the IMG Academy in Florida, U14 Eddie Herr (she was the 8th seed, beat 9th Emily de Oliveira 0 & 4 in R4, lost 6-3 4-6 4-6 to 3rd seed Clarine Lerby in QF ); and then, at her last tournament in December, she disappointingly bombed out in R1 of U14 Orange Bowl, the other prestigious American tournament, 4 & 1 to Julia Fliegner as the 9th seed.

She started 2018 ranked #657, reached a CHR of 282 three weeks ago, and is currently #299. Keep going! Hopefully she starts doing damage in G3s and higher in the 2nd part of the year!

An update on Selin's results in singles since my last post, which was a while ago

This year: she's won 2 titles:
• a G5 in Antalya on hard in February: she was the 6th seed, beat (3)Ozlem Uslu (13 yo, #380) 7-5 2-0 ret. in QF, dragged (2)Beyda Baykal (15 yo, #340) 2 & 2 in SF and (14)Anna Chekanskaya (15 yo; routined (1)Akbas in R3) 1 & 4 in the final
• a G4 in Istanbul on hard in May: she was the 4th seed, routined 17 yo (9)Ekin Ercetin 4 & 4 in the final

She has 3 more SF appearances: at a Cat. 1 G16 in Italy on clay in March (she was the 3rd seed, destroyed 5th seed Daniela Glanzer 3 & 0 in QF and then got thrashed by 12 yo prodigy 2nd seed Linda Fruhvirtova, who cruised to the title 2 & 3 in SF ); at a G4 in Antalya on hard in March (she was the 7th seed, beat 3rd seed Alina Tsyurpalevych [15 yo, Top 400] 6-3 7-6(4) in QF and fell to leftie top seed Weronika Baszak [15 yo, #231] 3 & 1 in the final ); and at a G5 in Denmark on clay in June (she was the top seed, got routined by 16 yo qualifier Cristina Mayorova Bakhtina, who went on to win the whole thing, 4 & 3 in SF ).

And also a couple of QFs in June, at the prestigious clay Cat. 1 G16 in Milano (she was the 13th seed, upset top seed Antonia Ruzic 6-7(1) 6-3 6-2 in R3 , fell 6-2 2-6 2-6 to local 10th seed Asia Serafini, who got a set away from the title , in QF ) and then at a clay G4 in Denmark.

Surprisingly, she didn't play the U16 European Championships in Moscow last month. Hasn't competed in almost 2 months now. She's turning 15 tomorrow btw!

Selin was back to competing at G5 Babolat Cup in Chisinau, Moldova, last week: she was the 3rd seed there, beat Eva Prokopenko 6-4 3-6 6-0 in R1, but fell to 16 yo Yelyzaveta Akimenko 4-6 5-7 in R2

Akimenko went on to beat the 5th seed, then the top seed and then the 2nd seed to win the title

Re: Selin Lidya Sepken

Selin made the final of a G5 in Amman a couple weeks ago!

She was the 8th seed there, beat Mubarka Alnaemi 0 & 1 in R1, Noor Omara 0 & 1 in R2, top seed Ferdaous Bahri 4 & 1 in QF and double-bagelled Mahin Qureshi (who upset 5th seed Lasheen in R1) but sadly she had to retire at 2-3 against fellow Turk Ozlem Uslu (2004 born) in the final, because of a shoulder injury

Sucks for her, hope it's not too serious

By making the final, she's jumped to a new CHR of 873 (+239)







"Thank you guys for this week! It was more than awesome! all filled with happy, sad , hilarious and emotional moments�� miss u all�� #jordansquad#finals#injurysucks#gratefull"

Re: Selin Lidya Sepken

Selin won a Cat. 3 G16 in Istanbul a little over a month ago. She was the 5th seed there, beat Russian 2nd seed Anna Grigoreva 6-3 6-7(3) 6-2 in QF, 3rd seed Ozlem Uslu 4 & 3 in SF, and 9th seed Melissa Yakup Pour (who upset top seed Arli in SF) 0 & 1 in the final

This is her first singles title this year!




She also played her very first G18s in May. Both were G4s in Istanbul: she lost 3 & 4 to 3rd seed Helena Jansen Figueras (17 yo , CHR 290) in R1 of the first one; and at the 2nd one she beat 11th seed Lana Kentchiashvili (17 yo , CHR 532) 3 & 2 in R1 and double-bagelled Begum Gumussoy in R2, before retiring down 5-7 against 6th seed Zeynep Sonmez (1 year older than her, currently Top 300) in R3.

She's still only 13 though, so not really surprising. Hopefully she fulfills her potential and the fans should come in droves
I can see why you like/interested in her after reading first post carefully But yh,seeing that clip,she has nice strong groundstrokes and yet isn't brainless. (i might become real fan after seeing more of her matches ) Maybe putting some more weight/muscles would make her even better for future though Interesting/promising turkish girls emerging every 2,3 yrs these days,seems they are investing more in tennis.

Re: Selin Lidya Sepken

Selin lost 6-7(8) 6-7(1) to Anaëlle - in the first set TB, she saved 3 SPs to set up a SP of her own (going from *3-6 to *7-6 up) but still managed to let the set slip away from her... Not sure what happened in the 2nd set, I didn't follow the livescore.

Must have felt frustrating to lose liek this


Fortunately, she took her revenge afterwards in doubles with Polinka, they won 6-4 6-7(1) [10-1] in SF!

They'll face 2nd seeds Bondarenko/Zhabrailova (who won the Cat. 1 G14 in Stockholm last week) in a DREAM final tomorrow
