Re: 15,000$ Sharm El Sheikh F5, Egypt, Feb12, Draws
- 15 year old Qinwen Zheng easily qualified for the maindraw and beat no other than WTA superstar and the top seed in the quali Alexandra Riley 62 61. Qinwen is the current # 27 of the ITF Junior ranking and plays only her 3rd ITF Pro event. At a 25,000$ event in Playford, Australia in January she won a set vs experienced Jennifer Elie (USA) in the quali. Last week in Sharm El Sheikh she lost 61 36 57 vs Danai Petroula (GRE) in QR2.
- 17 year old Joanne Züger recently claimed the title at the ITF Grade 4 event in Oberentfelden (SUI). While she played 6 ITF Pro events in 2015 she concentrated on the junior level in 2016 and did not play a single tournament on the ITF Pro Tour. In 2017 she entered 2 events and played a good match vs Rebeka Masarova (ESP) in R1 of the 15,000$ event in Sion where she lost 46 57 in R1.
