WOW! This girl looks promising...

Lyudmyla Kichenok from Ukraine, during her Fed Cup match against Top-10 Clay-Goat Stosur.

Of course one good performance does not mean great success, at least I've never heard anything again from Rogowska, who nearly beat Safina last year at Flushing Meadows. But I'd love to see her rise up the rankings in the next few years. Her Groundies and her serve seems to be good.

I think the surprise is that she served well too.

Re: WOW! This girl looks promising...

She was awesome there but she should stop drawing top seeds because she drew 1st seed in her last 3 tournaments!!!

No.
Her second serve is not good and make a lot of DF. (14 in the last two matches,in both she lost in two sets) and everytime a check the stats she always made 6-7-8 DF per match.

Re: WOW! This girl looks promising...

No...I mean in that match. I've figured it was a rare occurance, but that was the surprise of the video, I think.

Amen.

Love Lyuda (I made the video) and she played great in that match, but that's just one of the few times a year her shots land in.

Yes very rare occurance
She hits some aces (3-4)in most of her matches but when you look at the DF and point won with the second serve (even with the first coz not all her shots land in like in this match)..
