and soon enough it is!
this week in california - 25K redding
19 SAVRANSKY, Yevgenia ISR 373 in qualies!
220 was the main draw cut, so it's quite a strong tourny.
best of luck! i'll be updating!
and a quick update!
savransky won her first match!
11 SAVRANSKY Yevgenia ISR def. UHLIROVA Vladimira CZE 63 62
as you can see, she's the 11th seed in qualies, so she should have won, all for the best! uhlirova is ranked 708th in the world - so no bonus points, but
she now meets 4th seed (in qualies) Emily WEBLEY-SMITH, ranked 280.
take this and she might improve her career high with another win in the MD.
good luck! do us proud!
update! and it's good news once more!
11 SAVRANSKY Yevgenia ISR def. 4 WEBLEY-SMITH Emily GBR 76 (5) 63
nice upset! into the maindraw, so it's "big" points already.
too early to say, but should she win it - she might top her career best...
in the main draw yeffy (and that will be her official nick!) sees fellow qualifier Afinogenova, yet ANOTHER russian...
good luck! have a good run here!
the run continues! with no lapses or chokes yeffy won!
Savransky d. Afinogenova 61 64
afinogenova is ranked 422, so another point bonus is awarded!
so it's another win to her tally (7/3 from the start of this season) and better yet, she qualified in doubles too!
first qualy round
2) MEZAK (CRO) / SAVRANSKY (ISR) defeated BARDINA (RUS) / LEPCHENKO (UZB) 24 41 40
i don't have the score for the final round, but she won it too!
2) MEZAK (CRO) / SAVRANSKY (ISR) defeated (4) SAFAROVA (CZE) / SAKOWICZ (POL)
she now plays the other qualifiers, NOONI (SWE) / SCHEEPERS (RSA so she still has a very good chance for even more wins!
i'm so pleased!
looks like israel had a real squad for this years fed cup, eh?
savransky will probably meet the top seed and big name rika fujiwara - it could be a career best win (109th ranked) not to mention a heap of bonus points (4). this tourny should get her back to the 50s in the third century of rankings, and hopefully, with the win over rika she can improve it.
updates still to come! good luck yeffy!
8 points in this tournament alone (10 up till this tourny) and another 7.5 should she beat rika.
quick update! MD double win
Q) MEZAK (CRO) / SAVRANSKY (ISR) def. (Q) NOONI (SWE) / SCHEEPERS (RSA) 75 60
nice. rika her next rival, had problems winning her match but was through in three set (losing first set tie-breaker)
Savransky d. Fujiwara(1) 76 63!!!!!!
amazing win! didn't lose her nerves in the tie-breaker! best tournament ever for savransky! she now meets nooni that upset 7th seed rao. yeffy already beat nooni this week in doubles, so she has the slight advantage over her.
4 straight wins here, hope she makes it another! her rankings are reallly jumping now, a win should best her career high.
by far and wide a fantastic, amazing tournament for yeffy!
add two more wins, singles and doubles to the list, and cross your fingers cuz savransky is in SF zone!
(Q) SAVRANSKY Yevgenia ISR def. NOONI Hanna SWE 67 (6) 61 60
(Q) MEZAK (CRO) / SAVRANSKY (ISR) def. HISAMATSU (JPN)/OKAMOTO (JPN) 62 62
the scoreline against nooni indicates savransky is on berzerk! amazing over-powering there. the doubles score is heavenly as well.
new career high this week!
i am REALLY glad i started this thread, cuz it seems as though we have big enough a star to praise for, and now a thread made for her. don't forget your'e "i told you she's good" signs!
next up safarova, top300 on stake.
good luck! go for the title sweep!
ranking to be projected to 316 - career high. way to go babe.
all good things come to an end, and sadly savransky is out of the tournament losing both her single and double matches today.
Safarova d. Savransky 63 62
dissapointing scoreline too - no real fight it seems. i guesss she was getting quite tired the same goes with the doubles -
2) BAKER (NZL)/LUBIANI (ITA) def. (Q) MEZAK (CRO) / SAVRANSKY (ISR) 62 61
still - i'm SO proud of yeffy! this was a tremendous week, and it just might be the boost she needed to upgrade her career - she definatly showed us that she has the material to win these 25K tournaments, so she'll be battling the better girls and hopefully, she''ll beat them like she did this week.
