Since Tyra and Caty both have their own cheering thread now, I think Amanda can have hers too! :)

She was born on August 31, 2001 in New Jersey, but lives in Miami.

Her best results so far this year are a final at G14 Nike Junior International Teen Tennis in England (she was the 8th seed, and lost to 2nd seed Caty McNally in the final, 1 & 3), followed by a QF appearance at G14 Les Petits As in France (she was the 5th seed there and fell to 4th seed and eventual runner-up Olga Danilovic in QF, 1 & 1) in January, and in July she made the SFs at G4 Justine Henin Junior Cup where as the 11th seed, she defeated the top seed Sandra Ortevall (#253) in straight sets, before being upset by the 12th seed Juliette Bastin in SF, 1 & 4.

Last week, she was at a CHR of 567.

This week, she's playing G1 Prince George’s County International Hard Court Junior Tennis Championship and off to a great start as she qualified for MD super easily (she was the 12th seed in qualies, had a bye in Q1, beat Lea Ma 2 & 0 in Q2 and (5)Amanda Meyer 0 & 1 in Q3) and already upset the 7th seed Anastasia Potapova (U14 #1 European player, Les Petits As champion and QFist at Wimbledon a few weeks ago) fairly easily in R1, 2 & 2. :eek: :yeah:

Keep going :)

Re: Amanda Anisimova









She was part of the U14 US Team (alongside Tyra Black and Caty McNally) at the ITF World Junior Tennis Finals (which is basically some sort of U14 Fed Cup) a few weeks ago, and they reached the final, where they lost to Russia.

Re: Amanda Anisimova

Amanda used her USO QWC very well, as she qualified for the MD in pretty convincing fashion. :D

She beat (2)Maria Herazo Gonzalez (#63, CHR 39) 1 & 2 in Q1, and (15)Maria Mateas 4 & 2 in Q2! :yeah:

R1 vs. Magdalena Frech is gonna be very tough though :scared: GL! :awww: :cheer::cheer:

Re: Amanda Anisimova

:hug: That was really close :sad: Too bad she couldn't get the TB :(

Frech is gonna turn 18 in December and is a WTA Top 400 player though, so she was the huge favourite and Amanda did a great job making it very close :yeah:

Re: Amanda Anisimova

Amanda is playing GA Abierto Juvenil Mexicano this week! :bounce: :)

Her R1 opponent, Andreea Amalia Rosca, retired at 3 all in their match yesterday - fortunate escape for Amanda but that was an unlucky draw, Andreea is older, promising and was in good form, she's better than most of the actual seeds in the draw :awww: :hug:
