Re: Valeria Patiuk
Valeria won her R1 match 6-4 6-3.
My prediction regarding the opponent was misguided, as junior rankings don't reflect pro-tour results, so it's not really a surprise the Russian was taken out by American Grace Min. The latter beat handily Arina Rodionova and Olaru at a local ITF not long ago, as well as a handful of other top 500 players, so Patiuk will be clearly the underdog in that one.
Curiously, all three Israeli juniors were scheduled in succession on court 15 today. One of the boys (Ram-Harel) won, the other lost from a set up.
