After winning the Orange Bowl and Junior Fed Cup, I definitely feel more confident coming into tournaments such as Junior Grand Slams. It helped me realise that I do belong here and that I can compete against the other girls playing big tournaments. Robin Montgomery

It was only her 4th tournament in the professional ranks.

Currently listed at No 803 in the ITF singles rankings, Montgomery is also ranked # 5 in the ITF junior rankings, a career peak for the American teenager.

She reached the quarter-finals of the recent Australian Open junior championships in January, going down to eventual champion Victoria Jimenez Kasintseva, of Andorra 1-6 7-5 6-7 and won the prestigious Orange Bowl title in December.

Speaking to the ITF website in January during the Australian Open, Montgomery commented: “After winning the Orange Bowl and Junior Fed Cup, I definitely feel more confident coming into tournaments such as Junior Grand Slams.

“It helped me realise that I do belong here and that I can compete against the other girls playing big tournaments.

“It also made me realise that I can be one of the top players.

“I enjoy playing players who are older than me. I feel less pressure – I like playing them.

“My coaches always tell me before I go on court that ‘there is always going to be one winner and one loser’.

“For me, that helps me get through matches and reminds me that I have to enjoy myself on court.

“No matter what the end result, I know that I am the same person and people will still support me whether I win or lose.”
