At 11 years old and 2 months, Nikki has been competing in the G16’s for the past month, this tournament didn’t have any girls entered into the 16’s Division so Nikki signed up to play in the G18’s for the first time.
In the first match Nikki deafeted Maria Mischenko 6-1; 6-2 in the Quaterfinals.
The Semifinals was a tough match. In the first set Nikki lost 6-2. The 2nd set Nikki came out strong and won the first 4 games to come up 4-0. She played aggressive and fast. In the 5th game she started to play safe and conservative and just started to lose points. Then her opponent played offensive and won the set 7-5.
