Ok, so I introduced her to the GM world earlier today :)oh: :angel:), so why not create a cheering thread for her while I'm at it, as she's kept improving since last year and is Top 500 now? :)

So here we go: Sara is 19 (born March 12, 1997), she's from Seine Saint-Denis (her dad is Serbian and her mum Montenegrin), she's made her very first pro finals this year, and she won her first pro singles title in July (10K Prokuplje in Serbia, with a 2 & 0 win over Satsuki Takamura in the final), and reached a CHR of 492 two weeks ago... and what's pretty intriguing imo is that apparently she started to be serious about tennis only two years ago, as her parents wanted her to finish highschool first :)yeah:)!. :dance:

She also won the national championships "2e série" in September, thrashing Jade Suvrijn in the final. :cool: :yeah:
She made 3 more pro finals in singles this year (at 10K Heraklion in April - she lost 1 & 3 to Diana Marcinkevica in the final; at 10K Prokuplje in July the week after her title - she lost 4-6 5-7 to Katarina Jokic in the final; and at 10K Palic a week after agin - she lost 4-6 6-1 4-6 to Agnes Bukta in the final).
She's also started to stronger tournaments this year, without much success yet to be frank, but she did score that pretty good straight-set win over Fiona Ferro in R1 of 50K Montpellier in June - her first (and only so far) MD win above 10K level! :devil: :hi5:

GL to her in the future - keep imrpoving girl! :D :armed: :cheer:

I saw a bit of her SF against Petroiu last week and she was cursing "oh put***n oh put***n!

hum not the right attitude to do great in this very demanding sport but good luck to her I guess

Wait&see about her, but i am happy to see new girls entering top 500. She is still young, and she has some time to evolve with her on-court behavior.

I am wondering what her potential is. I do see some good things in her game, and some that need work. Her looks are VERY marketable... hahahaha.

with Emmanuelle in Guadeloupe




She was the 8th seed at 15K Fort-de-France last week, beat WC Alice Gillan 0 & 3 in R1 but lost 3-6 5-7 to Ling Zhang in R2 :( :hug:

Yesterday, she got dismantled by Giuliana Olmos (23 yo, WTA 717, CHR 549) in R1 of 15K Petit-Bourg, where she was the 8th seed as well - 2 & 0 :tears: :hug: Olmos actually won the title in FdF last week without ropping a set, it looks like she's way better than her ranking, so I guess she probably was a good college player?

Sara turned 20 two days ago, my belated birthday wishes! :awww: :aparty:

She hasn't done very well so far this year: out of the 6 satellites she's played so far, she reached QFs once (in Saint-Martin, Guadeloupe), R2 once, and lost 4 times in R1... :(

She's playing 15K Gonesse this week, and she's drawn in-form 2nd seed Anan Zaja (25 yo, WTA 303) in R1 so it's probably gonna be another R1 exit for Sara :sobbing: GL though! :armed: :cheer:

I watched her last four matches in Glasgow and was really impressed at times, she definitely has a new fan.
She can play great tennis over a few games, but makes too many silly errors overall but hopefully she can improve that. When Sara was on fire Paquet could do nothing to hurt her, but she just doesn’t have the consistency of Paquet yet.
I’m surprised by some of the comments about her attitude here. She actually seemed like a really nice, sweet, quiet girl on the court. Sure, she got a bit angry about some bad calls but I actually thought she had a better attitude than most of the girls and guys at the event.
Hopefully 2018 is good to her!
