The best female junior player became a WTA player – Jule Niemeier

Jule came to us as a 15 year old talent. We could see right away the big potential in her game, but she struggled a lot with several nagging injuries, so we had make a longterm plan on how to get her body ready for a professional career.

After finishing her high school she quickly adapted to the women’s tour and won her first 15k in the summer of 2018 and was runner-up at a 25k event right after.
