Tennis. The victorious summer of Déodatienne Elisa Claudepierre

In recent weeks, it is not really good to meet Elisa Claudepierre on the courts. Newly winner of the Toul, Villers, Nancy (Lawn) and Golbey tournaments, the Déodatienne, ranked 4/6, leaves no crumbs to her opponents. A winning streak started in early July on the courts of TC Toul where the 21-year-old broke the Indian sign by winning the final against Justine Held (4/6, Jarville). An adversary she had never beaten before and who caused her a lot of headaches.

Freed by this victory, Elisa Claudepierre then went on to success: “I am confident. I play more range and above all less stressed. I get into my ball a lot more and I find the right areas. New sensations that allowed him to add a new name to his list by winning with style, this Sunday, against the Golbéenne Flora Mathieu (3/6) in the semi-finals of the Golbey tournament. A first again.

“It can go very quickly in the other direction”

However, and despite results that inspire optimism, the Déodatienne does not let herself be intoxicated: “It can go very quickly in the other direction too. It only takes two or three defeats in a row to lose confidence. It must be said that the former protege of Jean-Yves Léonard knows herself by heart since the time she uses her baskets on the courts. After taking her first steps with a racket in hand at the age of 4 in Fraize (“my dad played from time to time”), Elisa Claudepierre joined TC Déodatien at the age of 7 and took part in her first matches the following year. . “On one immediately noticed its potential. A young girl who is lively and passionate about tennis,” recalls Anne Weissrock, president of the TCD.

The first results are coming quickly. For nearly ten years, the Déodatienne chained the titles on the departmental (and around) and began to make a small reputation (she was 4/6 at 14 years old). For several years, she will repeatedly cross swords with her preferential rivals, namely the Spinalienne Charlotte Pierret or her partner Lola Vidal.

A new victory at Chavelot?

After putting tennis on hold to devote herself to her first year of medicine during the 2018-2019 season, the young woman gradually returned to the courts in the following seasons. Under the colors of AT Laneuveville at first, before making a comeback at TC Déodatien after the end of competitions linked to the health crisis.

However, the young student has a busy schedule and struggles to reconcile her studies and tennis. If she manages to train from time to time alongside the young Nancy prodigy Tanis Siti (she is ranked 5/6 at 12 years old, 5e best Frenchwoman in her age category) or even her little sister Julia (classified 15 to 13 years old), Elisa Claudepierre has decided to favor matches in 2022. For lack of time.

A strategy that seems to be paying off given its recent results. Although she knows that the weather will be even more reduced in the coming season. Hence his moderate goals: “I really wanted to get back to my best ranking (4/6). Next year, with the competition to choose your specialty, it will be complicated to chain the tournaments. I will just defend my ranking, it will already be good”. While waiting to plan for the next exercise, the Déodatienne is expected for the semi-finals of the Chavelot tournament at the end of the week. With, of course, the firm intention of extending his winning streak.
