I was lucky enough to see all of these young ladies play at the Acapulco Open 2014.
Allie Kiick has a great game. She had Sharon Fichman on the ropes but limped home to a 3 set defeat after sustaining a very unfortunate injury in the 3rd set against the petulant Fichman.Allie is a charming and very talented young lady. I´d like to see her take advantage of her own talents and opportunities and truly believe in her capacity to play her winning game.Coaching Allie if you need or would like is waiting here in sunny Mexico with none other than the talented Humberto Ortega. See my blog.
Sachia Vickery is another rising star who is a great representative for the sport of tennis. Good work Sachia ! Keep plugging away.
Sharon Fichman for all her hard work and industry is as good as she is going to get. Allie Kiick will surpass Sharon Fichman soon as long as she persists.
Eugenie Bouchard looked shakey at the Acapulco tournament and it was no surprise to see her go out although I would love for her to have made the final. She still needs to work on her second serve and first serve for that matter, and speed on court coverage. Unfortunately her training session content did not impress me. Needs to do more work on angles, work in the alley and on volleys. She should develop a serve and volley game she is made for it! Her coach in Acapulco is missing a training opportunity and Genie´s growth as a player is stunted. She is full of potential but needs better training. If she is to win multiple Grand Slams and be a serious contender against the big hitters(S. Williams, Azarenka, Sharapova) she needs a hitting partner who is going to kill her in practice after that a real match will be a cake walk. A word to the coaches: please you guys need to get to work (yes work!) and stop slacking!
