Hey guys, I wanted to post about Nikola Frankova, but she seems to be missing her own cheering thread, so I started one!

The 21 year old had an outstanding tournament at the 50K Biberach, Germany indoor. She entered as a qualifier and got to the round of 16, taking out No. 7 seed Anna Lapuschenkova along the way.

For her efforts, the former Top 20 junior gets to her career high ranking of 251 this week, so congrats to her!

This week she's in the main draw of the 25K Minsk. Her first opponent is compatriot Veronika Chvojkova.

Nikola started her year at the 10K Heraklion qualies in April.

Her results:

Q1 Nikola FRANKOVA CZE d. Amelia STUART GBR 60 62 :)
Q2 (6) Carolina PILLOT ITA d. Nikola FRANKOVA CZE 63 16 63 :hug:



An abbreviated year in 2014 saw Nikola's ranking fall to #1209, her worst since starting on tour. Now unranked, she looks to dig deep and recover the form she held in the late 00s.
