Paula Badosa Gibert
Aged just 20, New York-born American Spaniard Paula Badosa Gibert is easily one of the most interesting young prospects to come from Spain. Having already broken into the Top 200 on the WTA Singles circuit, achieving 193rd in 2015, the young starlet has a long and successful career ahead of her if she continues to progress at such an impressive rate.
Reaching the Third Round of the 2015 Miami Open as a wildcard, the young Gibert immediately made an impression, giving people all the more reason to see her qualities shine through and to appreciate her effervescent, aggressive and non-stop play style.
In 2015, she also won the 2015 French Open at Junior level, defeating Anna Kalinskaya in the Final. Her most recent win came at ITF level, when she defeated Margarita Gasparyan in the Les Franqueses del Valles final. Other big wins include wins in Glasgow, Scotland (Maia Lumsden) and Denain, France (Irina Ramialison).
For one so young, Gibert shows a maturity far beyond her young years, and an ability to make good on even the most challenging problems in a match. Tactically astute and already with the technique to match, the future looks bright for Paula Badosa Gibert.
