This week Eva played the most prestigous tournament in the world U14 in Tarbes, France, the one and only Les Petits As, Le Mondial Lacoste. After a tough game she had won (6:4, 6:3) against the Belgian girl, Eva was not concentrated enough to fight against the 7th seeded Russian girl Vera (4:6, 3:6) in the 2nd round of the international qualifications.
However, the memories of Les Petits As stays forever!
Playing at the highest level in the U14 category is an amazing experience.
Eva participated in the strong European tennis tournament Mueller Cup in Ulm, Germany. After winning 2 consecutive matches, over Kaemena from Germany (6:1, 6:2) and Italian girl Maria Savoia (6:4, 6:2) she was not able to maintain focus to enter the quarterfinals. The Russian girl Oktiabreva simply managed to defend her tennis court of Eva’s strikes (source TE).
In pair with Yasmin Vavrova from Slovak team she entered the quarterfinals, but the postponed game due to rain was a small disaster and they could say goodbye to semifinals.
The National Tennis team of Slovenia U14 participated in the European Championship U14 in Most, Czech Republic. Eva as a proud member of the National team reached the 2nd round and finished amoung 32-64 best players in Europe. Her score: 1 won and 2 lost single games and a win with Julija over the strong Greek team doubles was a great achievement for the Slovenian U14 team.
Eva was a part of the national team of Slovenia participating in European Summer Cup 2021 in Bucharest. In the pre-qualification the Slovenian team was better than Montenegro with 2:1, but had a little unluck in the next round loosing with 1:2 against Portugal. Eva and Julija won 2 consequtive double matches, but that was not enough to qualify into the big finals in San Remo.
In the consolation draw the team won the match against Bosnia and Hercegovina, but lost against Croatia with 1:2.
Eva had a tremendous week at Tennis Europe U14 cat 3 Krka Open. Playing tennis at 37C is hard even for a 13 year old girl. After 4 wins her winning streak came to an end at the semifinals, loosing the game against her Croatian opponent Dora B.
However, an hour later she became awinner in doubleswith Julija B, defeating Dora B and Sofija C from Croatia.
By 3 consecutive wins Eva gets into the semifinals of Tennis Europe U14 in Velenje (source). She lost the singles and the doubles in semifinals against the Italian national squad member Carla Giambelli (TZS).
Eva participated in the National Slovene tennis championship U14 in Krsko. She managed to defeat the 1st seeded player Nala in the semifinals, but no energy left with the swollen wrist for the great finals with Julija (5:7,5:7, source) and finished as a vice-champion for 2021.
In doubles with Julija they practically outplayed everyone and won the national championship U14 in doubles.
Eva took part in one of the top ranked tournament of Tennis Europe U14, the Dr.Oetker Cup U14 Cat 1 in Bucharest, Romania. Meeting an old friend, #2 of Romania, Federica Oana resulted in a great game. But missing two set points for 6:4 was mentally difficulty and the game ended up with 5:7, 2:6 (source). !Ganbate! is the Japanese word for try, try and do the best you can!
Playing doubles with Teodora Nagy was fun and a good oportunity to meet new friends from Romania. Thanks, Teodora, Iris and the Romanian team for a great time!
