Re: Israeli hopes for the future?
After passing two qualifying rounds with similar scorelines, but in the meantime she lost the 2R by walkover
And honestly I don't think she is.
First of all this was an unranked WC with none experience, hence the scoreline.
Second, she has played regularly in the last year or so and lost way too many 10K qualies, with no quality wins at all. In comparison to e.g. Astrugo she doesn't have half the achievements in more than double the tourneys.
I'd say right now the only hopes for some kind of a backup to Shahar in 2-3 years time are Glushko and Astrugo.
