Her biggest win ever?? Or should we count Bondarenko as a retired tennis player?
If you look at it the way WTA/ITF does, based on ranking at the time of the tournament, that's still Mircic @321. I think Bondarenko is reasonably serious abut trying to come back, but she's still ranked 1200-something. She was a top 30 player at one point, though so we could always go with that .
Either way, Nicoleta's playing with a lot of confidence now and that's v. nice to see .
(4)Pernilla Mendesova (CZE) d. Nicoleta-Catalina Dascalu (ROU) 26 63 64
Nicoleta was a break up in the third set (4-2) but couldn't conserve the advantage til the end. What a pity But still this was a good run for her, given that she wasn't supposed to win her first round match, let alone make it into the semis.
