    Look look, she's now in Quarter Finals!
    I've seen this girl playing against very good players and she's really impressive.

    I'm sure she will win :)

    I never heard of her, but that's not unusual for Spanish players ;)

    What do you know about her?

    I'm an spanish player (under 19) and I've been in many concentrations with her. I think she's 15, but she is the top woman player in Spain ( I think that she will beat the Olympic player Yoana Martinez ). She's a very complete player and I have no doubt that she will play in London 2012. I'm serious, you have to see how this girl plays, it's awesome (and she's only 15 or 16!)

    The numbers don't lie :cool:. Spanish U15 champ last year, this year's U17 champ already. Played Chloe Magee and Maja Tvrdy till 21-23 in the 3rd at the European Team champs not long ago. Now beating the few names I had on my bottom half list already :). Semi's should be reachable and then who knows ...

    Borg out, Borg out :rolleyes:. That was pretty weak or pretty strong by Rasmussen depending on how you want to look at it haha. Didn't seem to happy with himself so I'll call it pretty weak [​IMG].

    Hahaha, yes, I hope seeing her playing in LIVE in the camera they have in Milano, it's so impressive :)

    I think that Jamie Van Hooijdonk would win Bajuk and then we'll have to see what happens with Rasmussen :p

    Borg did not impress me at all in either yesterday's or today's match. He was slow on court. Rasmussen played a solid match but nothing special.

    The other MS match on camera earlier today: Lehikoinen/Persson was much better.

    Bajuk should be exhausted after his previous match.

    It took him 72 minutes!!

    Tan is leading against Lene Clausen, so go Belgium!

    And Again that Marin is leading also!

    @Feintman: do you have a picture of her? Can't find one. And are you also playing for Spain? (and what's your name)

    Lianne Tan? Beatriz Corrales played against her and they did a 3-sets match. C. Marin win easily in 2 sets Beatriz Corrales so.. good luck for Tan! I'm still thinking she will win this champ! :p

    Martins is out :( ultimately I think the Danish coaching experience made the difference in this match..

    It will be interesting to see Holst played against Lehikoinen in the SF, Lehikoinen beat Holst in the team event.

    I reckoned Lehikoinen to be an outsider, but after the defeat of favorite Martins everyone of the semi-finalists has a change...
