Tatiana Pieri
Anyone know anything about her?

I had never heard of her until this week. She's 14 (turning 15 later this month) and currently in the QF of a 10K :eek:

She has barely played any junior events but the ones she has played didn't really go well for her at all :tape:
Obviously she still has plenty of time though ;)

By the way, she qualified this week and then beat (2) Suvrijn (#384) and Grajdek (#650) :yeah:

Re: Tatiana Pieri
Great idea to open the thread :yeah:
She has won National Championships several times (obviously, in different categories related to the age). She has an older sister, Jessica, who plays tennis, too, but is constantly injured and who has won the National Championships several times, too.
Her (their) coach is the father, Ivano, who is also Jasmine Paolini's coach.

Tatiana is very very little, but she is well known for her being smart during the matches. She soon discovers her opponent's weaknesses and plays on them.
Her serve is, obviously, very weak. She has a great timing and tecnique in her shots, and she changes the rhythm a lot.
She is very correct during her matches. I remember someone saying she had never fistpumped in her 'career' so far :p

I am honestly surprised that she has already won four matches at this level: it was not easy at all.
She has played something like 4-5 tournaments in juniors, and just one this year, on carpet (I reckon?).

Not sure if she will be able to defeat Lombardo :lol: But great week anyway :)

Re: Tatiana Pieri
Can't believe she is 14 and is defeating three good players in a row so easily :tears:

Santa Margherita SF
(Q)Tatiana Pieri def. Yuliana Lizarazo (COL) 62 26 64 :woohoo:

Tatiana was leading 5-0 in the third set and wasted many match points before finally closing it :lol: What an outstanding week.
I watched Kennel, her opponent in the final, today, and she defends pretty well. But I don't even care about the outcome of tomorrow, I am simply delighted for this little fighter :yeah:

Re: Tatiana Pieri
18 or 19 I think.
It must be frustrating for all these players to lose to a kid :lol:

Re: Tatiana Pieri

So it's not a juniors tournament? I have no idea how it works not at WTA :lol:
