Nadia Podoroska Leaps Into The Top 100

What a difference a major tournament can make in your life as a tennis player.  It is not only the ranking and the joy of winning, the financial compensation allows some of these players to keep pursuing their passion to play tennis. 

Nadia Podoroska gets the honors of mover of the week.  With her semifinal showing at the 2020 French Open, the twenty-three-year-old announced that she has game.  Although she lost her semifinal match, it was a major step up for the Argentine.  I hope she will continue to build on this performance; however, with the Covid-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, she may have to wait until next season to play on the main WTA Tour.  I will be keeping an eye on this young lady.
