Deborah Chiesa is a good prospect from Italy. She was born in 1996.
I have watched her just once, last year in Rome. Her backhand is sublime, she makes a lot of winners with this shot.
Her serve is good, too.
Her movement reminds me of Wozniacki, obviously with the normal differences.
Her forehand is a weird shot. At times she just pushes it back, and usually missing it even in the rallies, and at times she goes for the winner, but it is really a vulnerable and unstable shot.
She is great friends with Spain's biggest prospect, Sara Sorribes Tormo.
Her mother said this year would have been crucial to see where Deborah can go in the world of tennis.
She is actually in the Top 100 among Juniors.

Pictures.




I think she will turn into a beautiful woman in a few years. :p

Just qualified for Bad Saulgau 25k main draw with 2 easy wins - 6-3 6-1 over Chiang and 6-0 6-1 over Fetecau. She's doing quite well lately, winning Torino 25k and now around the 350 mark in singles.

^ very beautiful pictures. Some really capture the character of Debbie, especially the tongue out one :lol:

Great to see how she is finally channelling all the work done to be more offensive and it's paying off... today she double bagelled Eikeri :eek:

I hope she can do really well in 2018, I really like her game!
She started the season in the 1ST Q round in Auckland beating 3-6 6-2 6-1 Suzy Larkin. Good that she rapidly improved after an awful first set! :cheer: Now there will be a good test, the croatian Tereza Mrdeza...good luck!

regardless of results, which seem to be a little on and off (she has also been fairly unlucky with a few draws and injuries), this season is an important learning process and if she can finish it within top 200 it is already a great success.

What I really like about her is the mental attitude: especially at RG she showed why she is such a good player: got there injured and with a few bad losses, basically gets hammered in the first set (6-0) then resets and turns it around. Same with Rus in the deciding round, when she wasted so many chances in the first set and still kept the cool and qualified.

TBH, something is still not in place, like it was last year, and with the FH and serve she has some issues, but I think she can really do well on HC (in the meantime, she qualified in Moscow with another crazy match today!)
