In the footsteps of Kim Clijsters: Jaylene Vandrum (15 years old) wins the prestigious Masters tournament in Monte Carlo | Tennis

She didn’t give up a single set in Monte Carlo. Not even in the final against Serbian Gala Ivanovic, who was eliminated by Jaylene Vandrum 6-0, 7-5.

It’s clear that the young Belgian is going through a great time. Which makes you dream of a rosy future.

Because Vandrum is not only the first countryman to win the prestigious junior championship this century. In October, she also won the European Championship in her age group, something that Justine Henin was unable to achieve at the time.

It was completely unexpected, because it was her first participation in a tournament of this level. What makes it even more impressive: since Sara Sorribes Tomo in 2012, no one has been able to combine these two tournament victories.

The Spaniard – now 27 years old – has firmly established herself in the top 100.

For now, Vandrumé can only dream of the 51st place in the WTA rankings that preceded her. The family itself mainly wants to keep its feet on Bruges soil. Vandrum hits her balls at the Royal Tennis Club of Bruges (KTCB) and has only been training at the top sports center in Wilrijk since the summer.

Her parents shield Vandrum from social media to avoid pressure and are always traveling to her daughter’s tournaments. All this in order to instantly crush personally excessively high expectations.

Although in recent days she has proven that she has the talent to become a high flyer.
