i'm starting to wonder whether bea is having some mental problems with closing out matches because even in the challenger events she hasn't bee going that deep into the tournaments and yet she comes and plays a high level wta tournament against a solid top 50 player and compete's really well and has the chances to win but ends up folding.
i'm still happy with the result but i think that is something she still has to work out and if she wants to get ranked up where her current physical game should be then she needs to fix the mental side of things.
but i'm happy that she seems to been gradually moving up the ranks. soon she should be up in the top 200 and then she might get soome better results because she won't need to qualify as much for the challenger events.
yes first time in the top 200 for her. and it is great that she'll get into the qualies at RG and Wimby. i'm hoping at Wimby she can make a bit of a run like she did at the US open but RG comes first i hope she qualifies.
i was saying that she was a dissapointment last year and everyone kept saying give her time.
she's had some decent wins but she hasn't been able to win a haul of matches she wins one or 2 matches and then loses in the next round even if she has beaten a good player. like in the qualies of the family circle cup she beat craybas in round 1 who was the top seed but then she fell to vento (i think) in the next round in straight sets pretty easily. consistency is her biggest problem at the moment. i hope she can get soome points on grass with her big serve.

It is time for a thread just for Madison. I love her enthusiasm and determination. She has improved greatly over the past year and I was really impressed with her at the US Open qualifiers.
Good luck at the US Open Juniors Madi!
This 14 year old tennis prodigy has a good future ahead of her.
Last year she won the USTA Girls 16 Clay Court Championships' singles crown at Virginia Beach Tennis and Country Club, her 4th USTA gold ball that she has won.
Also made it to the 3rd round of the Junior US Open.
Last week, won...
Tornado's younger sister won last week's G4 in Barbados and this week's G4 in Trinidad, all with the loss of just one set.
In the opening round last week she drew the #2 seed and beat her comfortably (62 63).
In R1 this week she drew the #1 seed (#222) and destroyed her (61 61).
I thought I'll start a thread to cheer for and share results and news of Akilah James. She was born in Grenada and played for her country this year on the pro tour until a few weeks ago when she took the US citizenship.
Here's her profile:
