Not a good loss, especially with what VasVas pointed out but still a positive two weeks. Good luck next week.

Re: Rising Georgian Giant, Oksana Kalashnikova!

Wow that's tough. Usually these type of losses destroy all the confidence of the lower ranked players.

Re: Rising Georgian Giant, Oksana Kalashnikova!





After the match she said that "I was really tired but I keep fighting till the end because the match was very close and both could have won it but Ma.Fernanda was better than me in the third set hitting really hard from the baseline and make her run side to side.My serve help me a lot to win some free points but she also served very well and I did not play very well in tie-break so she take advandge of that"

Re: Rising Georgian Giant, Oksana Kalashnikova!

I don't think Oksana will drastically fall off (at least not right away) judging by her comments after the match. She acknowledges that she was tired and playing a very good opponent, nice to see.

Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)

There's a collection of her photos from the final on flickr, I forgot to post them a few days ago but I can't be bothered to check now.
