Victoria :cheer:

Very impressive to win a slam at 14 years, 5 months. She won a huge JA last year and now a slam.

Still has to work on her game but overall, she has an impressive game for her age. Good mix of defense and offense, lefty, solid BH.

Excited to see what she does on clay as that seems to be her preferred surface.

Impressive for her age. Well done. However Baszak was an error machine. Probably in the 50 UE range.
It was annoying that VJK was asking for the towel after every single point. Like 200 times in the match. She was not perspiring much and her opponent only went for the towel a dozen times. I thought it was just because she wanted to make her opponent wait for her and to slow down the match.
If that's part of VJK's routine and she does that as a pro, her opponents won't appreciate that at all.

We need Jimenez!!! We cant make the same mistake like with De Minaur.
She can develop her career to the top under spanish federation.
But if she stays playing for Andorra, I will be happy too.
She is really talented, and a Top 20 player in the future.

Sounds like the final wasn't her most challenging match but has shown great fighting spirit this tournament which is promising for the future.

But whatever she goes on to achieve will always be AO champion well done.:):)

VJK looks very promising. As for Baszak she wasn't impressive at all. But still it's a great result. Love that BH!

VJK was the youngest player in the draw :love:
Very clutch performance, there's defo a future for her. Once she figured out Baszak it was NID, the holes and limitations in the Pole's game are huge and numerous. Still, I'm very happy for Weronika - she's one of the most surprising JGS finalists of this century (y)

I don't get how Victoria keeps winning matches when she is down. Out of nowhere, her opponents start spraying while she stays steady...Something fishy.
Does she use gypsy magic like Andreescu? lol lol lol

Is this the girl from Andorra?
Yes she is ♥ And what a beautiful country it is ♥ Right by the Pyrenees, but still close to Barcelona. You get the peace and the scenery of living in the mountains with the possibility of visiting/working in beautiful Catalunya. And let's not forget Andorra is a tax paradise. Very lucky!

Happy to see the thread.
So many of the finalists from the girls Grand Slam events go on to have big careers in the WTA.
Kasintseva is from the European tennis powerhouse of Andorra -- see the beautiful photos above.
Andorra is a landlocked little country in the mountains between France and Spain and has a population of 80,000.
From Google maps Andorra appears to be about 8 miles from side to side.
Kasintseva apparently was the youngest player in the girls AO event at 14 y/o and a lefty.

Very impressive from only 14 yo Victoria Jimenez Kasintseva! Well done :D
Andorra has a future champion. She can do big things on WTA Tour. Her future looks bright.

Actually the girls and women champions have the same fighter attitude. They NEVER give up!

Baszak has a big serve and forehand, but her whole game and reaction look in slow-motion.
She must get faster. And must improve her one-handed backhand. A big weakness in her game.
