WWW Surprise 25k Final: Wickmayer [1] vs Vakulenko [Q]

Usually 25k finals are not that interesting but this time we have TOP100 belgian nr 1 and former TOP40 player Julia Vakulenko who had a crisis last year. It could be a WTA International under different circumstances...

So, who will win? Yanina, the favourite or Julia who seems to be finding her old form?

Re: WWW Surprise 25k Final: Wickmayer [1] vs Vakulenko [Q]

^ I thought she won a $25K (or maybe $50K) last week aswell?


Julia



EDIT: She won $25K Rancho Mirage last week as a qualifier, 6-0 6-1 over Lauren Albanese in the final. She's on a 14-match winning streak, aswell.

14 wins in a row? That's pretty good....

Yeah, and I think her W/L record in 2009 is 16-1. She's doing well.
