Another russian on the way as rodionova picks up another win
i've haven't seen her play yet but i have been following her progress over the past two years. at the end of 2001 i thought she was just going to be a struggling player on the tour as she ranked about 200. i was surprised and happy for her rise in the ranks this year but it looks like it is not over. she just beat barna in the thailand toournie and now faces asagoe in the second round.
she has had great progress this year and i wonder how good she is going to be?
