i think maria is doing ok so far. most juniors get direct wildcards into maindraws but maria has chosen to try and qualify and she has qualified for three out of four tournies that she has competed in. didn't she lose to panova in one of her earlier tournies? she has had pretty tough draws, i think she has had to face a top 50 player in the first round every time.
