US Open Day 4: Paszek

Curtain Call

Player: Tamira Paszek
Nation: Austria
Age: 19
Current Ranking: 196
Notable Conquest: Lucie Safarova (26th seed, Czech Republic)
Today's Result: loss to Yung-Jan Chan (Chinese Taipei) in straight sets

Paszek is another 19-year-old qualifier. She did not make it to the main draw last year so the second round certainly counts as an improvement. However, she has experienced slam success before. At 16, she made it to the fourth round at both Wimbledon and the US Open. Though Austrian-born, Paszek claims family lineage from Chile, India and Tanzania.

My Tennis Fantasy

Yanina Wickmayer was my suicide pool pick for the day and she came through with a straight-set victory over Julia Goerges.
