“Ela teve um ótimo começo muito forte, abriu 4/0 e tinha um plano de jogo muito sólido. Então comecei a jogar melhor, fiquei mais focada e consegui entrar no jogo. Foi uma grande partida, nós duas jogamos bem”
I suspect home schooled, or distance learning is the most likely outcome, she is still at an age she has to legally be in education in Britain. Also no academy doesn't do academic studies. On the other hand, while a good British junior this recent focus on tennis is playing off masssively. She won the Santiago G2 semi-final, a level I didn't think she was up to and now in a G1 final Brazil a few weeks after. That's a huge explosion in success, so something is paying off.She's spent an awful lot of time on court so far this year, and there's more next week when she plays the Brazilian GA. Is she home-schooled? Given that she's so gifted academically, I'd hate to think she's shunning her studies for a quixotic tilt at a pro tennis career.
Appleton surpassed the aggressive play of the Swedish Mirjan Bjorklund per double 6/4. "It was great to play on the main court, against a great player and I respect a lot. The match was very tight and in the second set I lost by 4/3 and could be strong in the final game and win the match, "said the British player of only 16 years.

"I'm sure it will be an interesting game and I'm excited to play tomorrow," said Appleton, who despite having been created on grass courts or hard and covered, always had affection for Banana Bowl. She is accompanied in Brazil's father and coach, Michael, and mother, Sally.
"It is a very prestigious event and when I was younger and I heard about the tournament, always said he wanted to play the Banana Bowl and now I'm at the end," added the player seeking his second title in the South American clay, as well He won in Chile three weeks ago.
Still, making the final of a G1 is awesome and it looks like the score meant there was only one break difference in each set.
She has nearly 2 months to gather those points. I forget the cut-off is early but she has time. If she remains in this form she can deffo do it. She is paying well above her ranking from these results.Breaks into the top 100 at 64. RG is usually stacked, so could do with a few more points this week if she wants to make the MD.
