2 weeks ago and for the 2nd week in a row, Jarmila won a $25K challenger in Australia. As 1rst seed, she only lost 1 set en route for the title. She's now closed to the Top 100 and she'll now be able to play upper tournements due to her new ranking.
At the age of 30, Olga is breaking the Top 150 for the 1rst time! 2weeks ago, she reached the semi final in Biberach $25K challenger falling to 6th seed/n°180 Kristina Barrois.
