Thirteen year-old Melissa Greeff is the defending SA Women’s Open Champion 2006, the youngest ever winner of this title. At such a young age, Melissa’s chess career has brought great success and reward.
Last year, she won the girls section of the African Junior Chess Championships (U20) in December 2006 in Botswana, and was awarded a Woman International Master title (WIM) and her first Woman Grand Master norm.
Her win in Botswana gave her qualification for the World U20 Championships in 2007, and she has also been selected for the South African Women’s squad to play in the All African Games in Algeria in July 2007 (the youngest-ever player to be selected).
