Georgia’s rise up the rankings is incredible. You can see in the graph below, her U18 ITF ranking over the last few years. At the start of 2016, Georgia’s highest career ranking was 187. Her goal by September is to try and break into the top 100. What a terrific start to the year for Georgia. A fantastic achievement and a huge boost for Irish Tennis. Well done Georgia and all involved and the very best of luck in the Junior Australian Open!
