Anna Karolina Schmiedlova put an early loss at Wimbledon behind her and caught fire on the European clay last month.

She compiled an impressive eight-match winning streak, highlighted by her second title of 2015 on the red clay of Bucharest where she confidently dispatched one of WTA's leading performers on the surface, Sara Errani, in the final to register her first career Top 20 win.

With that triumph, Schmiedlova became one of nine players to have earned multiple titles on tour this season, and she's the youngest of that elite group. She then followed up on her success at Bucharest with a run to the Bad Gastein semis, improving her record on clay to 18-7 in 2015.

"I still cannot believe I won, because it was a really tough match and Sara Errani is an amazing player," Schmiedlova said in her post-match press conference. "I knew she'd be playing really well, and I knew it would be tough to focus on each point today because we would have really, really long rallies.

"After I won the first set I did everything I could to win the second set, because I couldn't imagine being able to play a third set against her. And I'm really happy I was able to close it out right there."

For those reasons you've voted her July's WTA Rising Star Of The Month.
