The Tzipora Obziler Thread
Today, Obziler defeated Yulia Beygelzimer of the Ukraine and reached the Gaz de France Tenor Tournament chmpionship match in Dinan. In the final she will face up and coming Timea Baczincsky of Switzerland.
While she is on the verge of winning her first major tournament in a long time, Tzipi is also 31 years of age. When interviewed she said that if she doesn't make it the the top 100 by the summer, she'll retire from professional tennis.
The Israeli tennis will suffer greatly if she doesn't reach her target, therefore the Dinan final is very important.
The next few tournaments will be crucial. She intended to play Estoril, but she couldn't make it to the qualies start because she's still in France. However, she'll play Budapest, Fed Cup, Cagnes-Sur-Mer and if she wins tomorrow, she'll win herself a ticket to a Tier III MD: Strasbourg.
Next week she'll crack the top 125. Hopefully she can carry on with this splendid form, and crack the top 100.
Good luck Tzipi. And keep cheering for her every match!
