Re: Julia Glushko
She lost that final to Fichman in straights which was a pity because it'll be a long while till she gets another chance for a 50K title unless something radical changes.
This week at a Canadian 25K which was clearly stronger than that joke 50K last week, she easily beat three players in the 350-400 range, then lost the SF to top seed Dubois. Strikingly similar to her showing last year in the same tournament where she also lost to Dubois in the semis.
Their H2H is now 0-4 for the Canadian without Julia taking a set (or even getting to a TB). She continues to struggle against better opposition, such as top-150 opponents, not to mention top 100.
She'll probably make the USO qualies.
